  • Animal health care and ethno-veterinary practices in Sakteng

    untitled-1To understand the animal health care knowledge in Sakteng, a semi-structure interview with 50 herders were carried out. The result showed that 70% of yak herders did not obtain any animal health and diseases related training. Only 30% of herders have participated in various training. The remoteness of yak herds and illiteracy was the main reasons for many of them not attending the training as most of them were engaged in herd chores and yaks.
