Setting Research Priority for Livestock Sector in Gujarat

Research resource allocation strategy has been worked out for the livestock sector across districts/ regions of the Gujarat state by using multi-criteria scoring model. The study has covered all the 19 districts of the state and six livestock species. In the commodity priority, the highest share (83%) has been claimed by milk research, followed by draught power (15%). The research share of meat, egg, skin and hair & wool is very low. The trend has been found same in the state as well as the districts. Within milk research, buffalo milk has got the highest priority in all the districts and research on poultry meat has claimed the highest share in meat research in most of the districts. The hide research should focus on the goat hide in the most of the districts. Wool research has claimed the highest priority in the Saurashtra, Middle and North Gujarat regions, while the South Gujarat region should focus on goat hair research. For the wool and hair research, the Kachchh district should receive the highest priority.
