The livestock sector in India is a backbone of the rural economy with 60% of the rural households dependent on it for economic activities and livelihood. Though livestock is a reliable source of income for farmers, contributing to 4.11% of the national GDP and 25.6% of the total agricultural GDP, the full potential of the sector is yet to be realized. Though national programs exist, they often work in silos, including limited participation of the private sector and market access by the livestock keepers.
