Livestock production and productivity largely depend on the availability of food and fodder which is about 50–60% less than the requirements in the state. Hence, there is a great scope for acceleration of food and fodder production in the state to boost up livestock production and subsequent processing.
The Jharkhand Feed Processing Industry Policy 2015 is in place which aims at creating a favourable atmosphere for setting-up of Animal feed processing units in the state through the creation of infrastructure facilities, encouragement of capital investment and technology up-gradation, development of marketing network, development promotion, grants and concessions. Jharkhand has huge untapped potential in developing an ecosystem suitable for the progress of Animal Husbandry sector, providing the balanced nutrition needed for Fisheries, Poultry, Piggery, Goatery and Cattle. Since there is a constantly increasing demand and significant growth in all the five segments viz. Cattle, Goatery, Piggery, Poultry and Fish Feed, which at present is being full filled from the neighbouring States. Hence, the state of Jharkhand offers a great opportunity for the investors to invest in the state.
