Winners of Animal Rearer Award for Women appreciate farmer-training videos on herbal medicines in animal healthcare

Women livestock rearers, who attended the ‘Animal Rearer Award for Women’ ceremony organised by the NGO Anthra, led by Dr. Nitya Ghotge, in Pune, Maharashtra, India, greatly appreciated the farmer-training videos on herbal medicines in animal healthcare, that were jointly developed by Anthra and Access Agriculture.

Men and women involved in animal husbandry from various districts of Maharashtra state attended the event, which recognised and honoured 10 exceptional women livestock rearers.

Atul Pagar, a key partner of Access Agriculture, took the initiative to show to the participants the videos, 'Herbal medicine against fever in livestock' and 'Natural ways to manage bloat in livestock'.

The videos received positive feedback from the audience, who appreciated the simple yet effective treatment methods for livestock diseases and the clear explanations and recommendations.

Atul also gave a live demonstration to the young participants on how to access the Access Agriculture website on their mobile phones. Related pamphlets in Marathi were distributed to all the attendees.
