LAHORE - The University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Talat Naseer Pasha has said that animals are facing 40 per cent shortage of fodder so they are unable to produce maximum yield potential. He said the problem could be solved through silage and hay making.

Speaking at a certificate distribution ceremony of a five-day training workshop on fodder production and management among participants on varsity campus here on Friday, he said the success could not be achieved overnight but through hard work and utter devotion. He said university was conducting practical research at national as well as international levels.

The VC congratulated FATA livestock officers and advised them to work hard for the betterment of their department.
