The return of bulls in the fields is a happy message: Chief Secretary

Lucknow, 23 September (H.C.). Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra has shared information about the energy device (bull driven tractor) at Vikalp Krishi Farm in Kanpur on Friday. The Chief Secretary, in three tweets from his official Twitter handle, has described the return of bulls in the fields as a happy message amidst the machinery era moving towards modernity. By adopting this tractor, the bulls can become useful again, as well as the problem of stray animals can also be overcome.

The Chief Secretary said that farming with bullock driven tractor (plough) will increase the interest of farmers towards animal husbandry, which is also very beneficial for the environment. With such new equipment, the work of plowing the field becomes easier for the farmer brothers. Its use increases efficiency, speed and productivity. Also, it is very useful for the environment.

He said that though it may sound strange to hear plowing the fields with bullock driven tractors, but it has been shown to be true. A unique tractor-like plow driven by bullocks has been developed, it also has a seating arrangement for the farmer. Told that through this pair of oxen, up to two acres of land is being plowed very easily in a day.
