The study is being implemented on estimating the economic losses incurred by farmers due to animal mortality and morbidity. Although several disease-specific economic loss studies have been done, understanding the farmers’ perspective on the losses associated with morbidity, irrespective of the type of disease and the veterinary services availed when diseases occur, was critical. Hence, the approach taken in the present study computes the losses from diseases based on symptoms as indicated by the farmers, rather than focusing on one specific disease.
