ICAR-National Institute of Animal Nutrition and Physiology, Bangalore has developed mineral mixtures for sheep and goat and the same has been granted India Patent No 294494 filed on 01-02-2012. The technology was commercialised to M/s. Kamdhenu Feeds, Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh on non-exclusive basis through Agrinnovate India, New Delhi. The memorandum of agreement for licensing to manufacture and sell the formulation was signed between Dr Raghavendra Bhatta, Director, ICAR-NIANP and Dr S P Sharma, Managing Partner, Kamdhenu Feeds in the presence of Shri Ravinderjit Singh, CEO, Agrinnovate India on 6th August 2018 at ICAR-NIANP, Bangalore. By this, majority of small ruminants reared in the north-western states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttaranchal are likey to get benefited. These mineral mixtures are formulated based on the specific mineral requirements of sheep and goat to meet 100% requirement of most deficient trace minerals and partially meet the requirement of other minerals, with a consideration that remaining is to be met through feed and fodder offered to animals. The interaction of minerals like the synergistic action of calcium, phosphorus and antagonistic action of copper and sulfur were also considered while formulating mineral mixture. The products are very useful in improving the productive efficiency and general health in small ruminants. The technology is cost-effective, sustainable, adoptable and environment-friendly. During this occasion, the innovators of this technology - Dr N K S Gowda & Dr D T Pal, Dr K S Prasad, Head, Animal Nutrition Department, Dr A P Kolte, Incharge, ITMU, Smt S Shashikala, AO and Smt P P Sheeja, AFAO were present.
