India’s first ever blood bank for cattle is going to be set up in the Odisha

Bhubaneswar:27/6/17′ India’s first ever blood bank for cattle is going to be set up in the Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT).

OUAT’s proposal in this regard has already received the nod of the State-level Committee chaired by Odisha Chief Secretary Aditya Prasad Padhi.

As per official sources, the blood bank will come up under the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) funded by the Centre at an estimated cost of Rs 3.5 crore.

Briefing media on Tuesday, OUAT Vice-Chancellor (VC) Surendranath Pasupalak said it would cater to the dire need of blood for the cattle at the time of emergency like anaemia, while giving birth and road mishaps.

The OUAT VC also informed that the university will also directly involve the farmers and identify potential cattle blood donors.

On the other hand, 76 newly-recruited Additional Soil Conservation Officers (ASCOs) were given away appointment letters by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in a function at OUAT today.
