College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, conducted a veterinary camp at Gandipet Goshala this week. Students of fourth year BVSc & AH of the fourth oldest veterinary college in India were ferried in the college bus to the Goshala early in the morning. The dairy farm manager showed the students around the farm with the professors in tow. The students got a hang of how a commercial dairy functions only after going around the farm.
The students were fascinated to note some differences between the dairy they read about in textbooks and the real dairy. Later the students were split into three batches and assigned the work of treating diseases concerning the three departments - Gynecology, Surgery & General Medicine. The animals were treated for several dreadful diseases and pathological conditions like Brucellosis, Mastitis, Repeat Breeding syndrome etc for the next three hours.
The seasoned Professors team which monitored the treatment all along gave suggestions to the staff and management of the Goshala on how to look after the farm effectively and tips to maximise milk production.
'Is there something more satiating than seeing an animal which has been treated by us frolicking in the fields again?' asked Dr Daida Krishna Prasad, Professor and Head of the department of Livestock Production and Management, at the post-camp interaction session organised by the management. The students could not agree more. Certificates of participation were handed over to the students after a sumptuous lunch.
