Rural Development and Animal Husbandry Minister Virender Kanwar said the government had taken several effective steps for protection of stray cattle through the Gau Seva Aayog and by setting up smart cow shelters in each district.

An agreement has been signed to set up smart cow shelters in Solan and Kangra districts. These shelters would have a capacity to accommodate 3,000 cows each and 20 per cent milch cows would be kept there, he said.

He presided over the 5th meeting of the Aayog. To make Gau Sadans self-reliant, 10 of these would be converted into Gau Vigyan Kendras, he said.—TNS
