It seems to be good and very big when data says that Pakistan is the 5th largest producer of milk from a herd of 50 million with average less than 1,000 litres milk per lactation period per cattle. Yet it imports value added milk products to meet its growing demand. On comparison with Australia that has only herd of 1.6 million that gives 5,600 litres milk per lactation period per cattle. Just imagine if Pakistan had the same milking average of Australia, where we would be and not being the 1st largest milk producing country for in the world?

·         Is there something seriously wrong with our farming practices or simply we don’t have the required cattle breed to match the world average?

Reply to the above question is surely “yes” in both cases.
1.      Our farming practices are out-dated required to be modernized.  
2.      Most of Pakistani farmers are proud in having good quality Ravi-Nili bufalos and Sahiwal breed cows. It is the right time for their replacement with cross breed herd.
