Poultry farmers' training

KATHMANDU: NIMBUS -an organisation involved in agribusiness is organising a free ‘technical extensive training’ on bio-security and other poultry-related diseases.

The move follows outbreak of bird flu in domestic fowls. NIMBUS, a pioneer in pellet feed production in the country, in its statement said the training will be conducted in Dhangadi and Surkhet. Later this month, NIMBUS is planning to organise a similar training at Damauli of Tanahun and also in parts of Kaski district. Trainers Dr Sital Kaji Shrestha, Dr Bikash Malla and Dr Nishchal Sharma would impart the training to the poultry farmers. Last month, the government had declared bird flu in Pokhara.

Dr Shrestha said since

farmers were lacking knowledge about zoonotic diseases like bird flu, awareness was a must for them. “Training will be imparted in a scientific way,” he added.
