KANCHANPUR: Kanchnapur district has become gradually self-sufficient in milk and meat production.

With the rise in the adoption of commercial rearing of high-breed livestock, the district has steadily turned to be self-sufficient in milk production.

According to the data maintained at Kanchanpur-based Veterinary Hospital and Livestock Service Expert Centre, milk and meat production of Kanchanpur is being supplied to outside districts.

Kanchanpur has a total demand of 7,245 metric tons of meat while its production is 7,388 metric tons, informed Veterinary Doctor at the Centre Khadka Bahadur Pandey.

He further shared that 143 metric tons of meat is being supplied to mountainous districts of Sudurpaschim.

Likewise, the district has a total production of 70,760 metric tons of milk while total demand is 47,105 metric tons.

Surplus 23,655 metric tons of milk is being supplied to adjoining Kailali district and India.

“Kanchanpur has become self-reliant in milk and meat production”, Pandey said, adding, “Production of milk in Dodhara-Chadani is being exported to India while production of other areas is being supplied to Kailali”.

He informed that milk production has increased in the district with the farmers adopting commercial livestock farming of late.

“Farmers are also getting grants and incentives from the government and have used this support mechanism for promoting commercial livestock rearing”, he said, adding, “The farmers have also cultivated grass farming to feed the high-breed cattle. It has also helped increase milk production”.

However, Kanchanpur district has to import fish and egg products from other districts.

He said the district has a total demand of 5,176 metric tons of fish while its production is 1,575 metric tons.

Likewise, Kanchanpur has a total of 20,000 metric tons of egg production whereas the demand is only 24,846 metric tons, the Centre said.

Coordinator of High-Breed Buffalo Rearing Bloc Coordination Committee Dodhara-Chadani Lal Bahadur Pun confirmed that the milk production of Dodhara-Chadani was being sold out in India and Mahendranagar.

“Indian traders are coming here to purchase milk”, he said, adding local farmers have adopted commercial livestock rearing in groups with the surge in income from milk produce. As many as 41 farmers’ groups are rearing buffalo.

“We received grant of Rs 7 million from the Prime Minister Agriculture Project. It has eased our commercial farming”, he added.
