Pir Luari’s Cattle Farm steals limelight at cattle show

Karachi
Cattle enthusiasts taking part in a two-day exhibition at the Expo Centre returned to their pens on Wednesday satisfied with the prospects of the commercial aspect of their hobby.
The Pir Muhammad Sadiq Cattle Farm, Luari Sharif, once again stole the limelight at the exhibition with six top notches for its prized collection of Thari cow.
The Sindh Board of Investment (SBI) organised the Livestock, Dairy, Fisheries and Poultry Exhibition for the first time ever in the provincial capital, with a view to promoting the potential of livestock, dairy and fisheries sectors in the province. The event ended on Tuesday.
Foreign and local players in the value chain of the livestock, businessman, prospective investors, diplomatic missions, multilateral agencies and academia participated in the event, while owners of pedigree cows, buffaloes and camels etc tested their animals against those of their competitors in the contests in various categories.
The Pir Luari’s Farm bagged top prizes in the best bull, the best young bull and the best heifer categories, representative of the farm Mir Sikandar Khan Jamali said. The farm, he added, also pocketed second prize for Thari bull and Thari cow and a third position for another Thari bull.
The centuries-old farm, owned by Pir Muhammad Sadiq Qureshi, the 9th Pir of Luari Sharif, boasts of pure Thari cows besides Kundhi buffalo. The farm has won top prizes at other national level competitions like the Horse and Cattle Show-2004 in Lahore and the Buffalo Show-2009 in Pattoki.
Organisers said the exhibitors received orders worth Rs400 million during the two-day event. An SBI official said that overseas and locals investors showed keen interest in investing in the livestock and poultry sectors.
