Chandigarh : Haryana Chief Minister will be the Chief Guest at the closing ceremony of the 39th State Livestock Exhibition, on March 13. The exhibition is presently organized at Charkhi Dadri.

The Chief Minister will give cash rewards worth lakhs to the livestock owners who will bag top positions in the ongoing exhibition. Union Minister of State for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Dr. Sanjeev Balyan, Haryana Animal Husbandry and Dairying Minister, Sh. J.P Dalal, Member Parliament, Sh. Dharamveer Singh and several other dignitaries along with top officers of the Animal Husbandry and Dairying Department will also participate in the programme.

The Chief Minister firmly believes that the progress of animal husbandry plays a pivotal role in ensuring the holistic development of villages. Notably, to give a major boost to the animal husbandry sector in Haryana, the present government is taking dedicated steps.

“The State Government is taking all possible steps to increase the income of farmers and livestock owners. Most of the livestock in the state is reared by small and marginal farmers and agricultural labourers. Recognizing this, the present government has not only formulated several husbandry-related schemes but has also ensured its meticulous implementation," said Sh. Manohar Lal.


Notably, Haryana is world famous for its Murrah breed of buffalo. A programme is being run by the government for the conservation and development of this breed. Cash incentive of up to Rs 30,000 is being given to the owners of high-quality and high milk-yielding Murrah buffaloes. Along with this, commendable steps are being taken by the government to ensure the safety of cows. For this purpose, Gau Sewa Aayog has been formed.


With this, the Manohar Lal-led Government is also working constantly for animal health. The establishment of mobile veterinary units in the state is under process and for this, a budget of Rs 11.20 crore has been released by the Government of India for the establishment of 70 mobile veterinary units in the state.


It is a matter of pride that the state of Haryana is one of the leading states in terms of milk-producing states in India. Today the annual milk production in Haryana is 116.29 lakh tonnes and with per capita milk availability of 1083 grams, Haryana ranks second in the country.
