One lakh sacrificial animals are ready

One lakh sacrificial animals are ready There is a sufficient supply of local sacrificial animals at cattle markets in Ashuganj of Brahmanbaria. The local supply can meet the demand in Eid-ul-Azha this year. -AA

A total of 105,960 sacrificial animals have been prepared in Brahmanbaria for the holy religious festival of Muslims Eid -ul-Azha. As a result, there is no need to import livestock to meet the demand this year.It is learned that preparations have already been made to meet the needs of the animals for the sacrifices of the upazilas of the district.

Accordingly, at least 105960 cattle and buffaloes have been reared on at least 13,500 farms. Various cows, buffaloes and goats are being observed on these farms as a whole personal initiative.

However, the last time last year, the Indian cows entered the country, and many of the yeast were damaged. So this year, the villagers are spending busy time in different farms in the district to cut the losses.Meanwhile, the District Livestock Division is monitoring the market. That's why sixty of their medical teams are working at the sacrificial animals.

This time, 5210 sacrificial animals were prepared in Ashuganj upazila. Besides, there is a demand for one lakh sacrificial animals in the nine upazilas of the district. As there is more animal stock than demand, no crisis will be created. Meanwhile, there are about two hundred small-big sacrificial animal huts in nine upazilas of the district. In every market, cattle, goats and buffaloes were sacrificed. Most of the animals were raised in different environments in the district.

Ashuganj Upazila farm owner Bakul Islam told to Asian Age, "The cows have been fattened in a domestic manner, including drugs, straw and husk that are not harmful to public health." As a result, the cost of raising cows has also increased. Therefore, we demand from the government not to allow Indian animals to enter the market. "

District Livestock Officer Dr. Tapas Kanti Dutt told to Asian Age, "The livestock department has been working in the upazilas of the district for almost six years now to meet the demand for animal sacrifice.

 This time there is no possibility of a crisis in the sacrificial animals of the district. We have a mobile medical team at every hut in the district. They are always active in the field.
