A 60-kilogramme small silage bale project is being launched to cater the need of 90 percent small deprived farmers in the Punjab.
The official launching of the trade mark registered “Punjab Silage”, the Punjab Livestock and Dairy Development Board is launching, will take place on June 3 at the Kasur Production Unit which the chief minister of the Punjab will officially open it.
About the project, Saira Iftikhar, the board Director, claimed on Wednesday that Pakistan was being considered among the top five milk-producing countries, but “we have more animals than others and because of fodder deficiency, our animals are underfed and their production very low.
Currently, we are facing a 75 per cent fodder shortage in the province”. She also talked about the silage project filling the demand and supply gap of fodder, which she claimed, would increase milk and meat production and farmers could save up to Rs 35,000 per animal per annum.
