The local stock of sacrificial animals for the upcoming Eid Al Adha is sufficient in the country. No need to import cattle this year.
Secretary Md.Maksudul Hasan Khan of Fisheries and Livestock Ministry informed this to the media. He said around 1 crore 15 lakh and 57 thousands of cattle are available across the country this year.
A total of 44.57 lakh cows-buffalos and 71 thousands goats-sheeps are ready for this Eid, he said.
Cattle rearing has increased in last couple of years. At least 30 percent local cattle have been added this year and so, there is nothing to be worried about shortage of animals ahead of Eid, an official of the Ministry said.
