Brief Introduction of the Center
Livestock plays a key role in the house hold economy of farming community. The District Kohat is mostly hilly, most of the farmers have small land holding. The area is 77% rain fed and 23% irrigated. The people are very poor and mostly depends upon livestock and majority of farmers having 1 to 5 animals. There are number of problems in desired livestock production, performance and lack of interest towards the improved management (housing & feeding) and treatment of livestock. To minimize these losses, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa established Veterinary Research and Disease Investigation Centre (VR&DIC) at Kohat in 1991.
