YSR Kapari Bandhu Scheme is a brilliant step towards safeguarding shepherds’ interests in the Andhra Pradesh State. Livestock is one of the fast-growing agricultural sub-sectors in developing countries and indispensable to the farmers’ economic, nutritional, and social well-being. Livestock and poultry are essential contributors to the national economy.

In India, sheep farming is done mostly with temporary or seasonal migration. Migration of flock in search of feed, fodder, and water is a common practice of shepherds. Shepherds generally follow specific traditional methods during the migration period, but modern scientific methods play a significant role in improving production. The improved sheep husbandry practices make it a more sustainable and profitable livelihood enterprise. However, the road is not so smooth, and shepherds suffer considerable distress on their way.
