Livestock Reduces Poverty

Each family holds about 2-3 cattle/buffalo and 3-4 sheep/goats and derives 30 to 40 per cent of its income from it. Small scale producer Role of women Protein intake of poor is by enhancing livestock production. In rural areas farming, livestock, and non-farm activities are major sources of employment and income Livestock development is imperative for strengthening of the national economy globalization.

Current Situation Of Live Stock And Potential Exist In This Sector

Constraints To Livestock Production:


The lack of proven bulls and a good artificial insemination service have resulted in a large number of animals with low genetic potential. This is a major problem in setting up dairy and small ruminant development projects.

Estimated feed and fodder resources meet only 70% of the calculated feed requirements of the livestock population. Although sufficient in quantity, the quality of poultry feed is questionable. Infectious diseases and parasitesvaccination against infectious diseases ranges from 0.5% to 10% and the quality of available vaccines needs to be improved. The animal disease surveillance and monitoring system is poor and diagnostic facilities are inadequate.


There is a lack of government investment. Total allocation for livestock in most of the five-year development plans has not exceeded 1% and is less than 8% of the agriculture sector allocation. Most livestock raised on smallholdings by poor, landless farmers, who are not organized and have no political voice. In many areas, keeping livestock is a matter of prestige rather than an economic activity. An unplanned marketing system with too many middlemen reduces producers profits. The mandates of research and development institutions lack clarity and are too broad in relation to available resources.

There is a lack of well-documented, site-specific management guidelines for different livestock

Rangelands are deteriorating because of unplanned and excessive grazing. There is no land tenure and

no investment in the common rangeland.

With no price premiums for quality milk and meat, the viability of the commercial dairy and meat industries is questionable

Contribution of livestock in major industrial export of Pakistan

The significance of the Food Industry to Pakistans economy can be determine from the fact that it contributes approximately 23% to total GDP. With a natural inclination towards agro resources, Pakistan is capable of producing a vast variety of food commodities fresh as well as processed. Increasingly now, the food industry is capitalizing on the availability and use of latest machinery to meet growing domestic & international demand.

In the backdrop of a buoyant growth rate of 6.6 %, the contribution of the agro processing industry was a healthy 22.7% of total value added in the manufacturing sector; in terms of employment repository the agricultural sector contributes over 42% of the available workforce Apart from agricultural inputs like wheat, maize, cotton and sugarcane, products such as fruits, vegetables and dairy also play a vital role. Milk production, as per latest statistics stands at 31 million tones which translate to about 51% of the total value of the livestock sector. Pakistan also enjoys a place among the top ten citrus fruit producers in the world. Ranked fourth in worldwide sugarcane production and twelfth in

sugar production

Another sub-segment that shows tremendous potential is the beverage industry; currently there are about 170 units in operation around the country that produce water, syrups and squashes.

Major Pakistani exports comprise fresh fruits, vegetables and their preparations, fish and fish preparations, spices, nuts, confectionery, sugar and other sugar preparations while imports include tea, dairy products, confectionery, chocolates, cocoa, margarine and shortening, together making Pakistan an important market for technologies as well as products.

Although there is a strong need in Pakistan for wool and mutton development, no serious efforts have so far been made in this regard because of resource constraints. The province of Sindh possesses 16 per cent of sheep population in the country which are kept mainly for their meat.

Reasons For Mutton And Wool Losses

It is the only animal which serves multiple purposes suitable in deserts and hilly areas where other animals fail to thrive, mainly due to lesser water and fodder availability. 1)It is estimated that mutton and wool losses due to mortality is approximately 10 per cent whereas production losses due to improper feeding and parasitic diseases (both ecto and endoparasitic) is not less than 30 per cent. 2)The losses of wool are estimated up to 20 per cent due to faulty shearing as about 1/4 wool is left over body of sheep. The quality of skin is also lowered due to the fact that many cuts are left over the skin due to improper shearing.

3) It is estimated that sheep have increased in numbers by more than 41 per cent during the period from 1986 to 1996. However, profitability has not increased due to lack of knowledge of breeding, management, nutrition, disease control measures, drenching against endo-parasitic and dipping against ecto- parasitic diseases. 4)The district Tharparkar is richest in sheep population, which possesses 40 per cent of the province's sheep population and is most suitable for sheep and wool development. Other such areas in the province are those of Nara area of Khairpur and Kohistan of Dadu.

Suggestion To Improve Quality Wool Production

The wool development centers once established at taluka/ union council level, can serve training places for wool development where owners in the areas be registered and provided technical assistance and veterinary extension services. These services can be provided through trained leader or an NGO in the village.

In Sindh the present population is about 23.5 million sheep from which 6.12 million kg wool is obtained. It can be doubled by providing modern techniques such as: 1. Control of ectoparasites; 2. Shearing with modern electric machines; 3. Keeping quality wool separate from lower parts wool; 4. Storing and protecting wool from parasites; 5. Selling wool at a time when it fetches the highest price.

The Growing Livestock Farming

Livestock is the second important sector of agriculture While the share of agriculture in GDP declined from 26 in 1986-87 to 24 per cent in 2003-04, the share of livestock went up from eight to 11.4 per cent during that period. In other words, the share of livestock in agriculture increased from 30 to 48 per cent. Its foreign exchange earnings increased to Rs53 billion in 2003-04 which is 12.34 per cent of the total national export earnings as compared to its share of 5.3 per cent in 2001-02. Despite the neglect of livestock sector, its share in GDP and that of agriculture as well as of export earnings increased.

Increase of livestock population between 1960-61 to 2002-03

there was significant increase in the population of livestock, especially goats, buffaloes, sheep and cattle in the given order. Although, there was increase in the population of camels and bovines, but this increase except that of donkeys was not significant .Because their population was below one million in 1960-61 and it remained below one million even after 43 years in 2002-03.

there was significant increase in livestock products such as milk ,beef ,mutton poultry meat and eggs etc .But inspite of significant increase in milk production mostly due to increase in the number of buffaloes ,cattle and milk breeds of goats and sheep ,the import of milk and milk bye-products increase from Rs226 million in 1978-79 to Rs770 million in 2002-03.

Increase in livestock but shortage of meat

Again, most of the big cities are facing shortage of meat due to smuggling of animals and meat to Afghanistan and Middle Eastern countries ,besides their export to these countries as well. This has not only caused meat deficiency in the big cities resulting in persistent increase in meat prices . For instance, due to such shortage of meat in Karachi ,animals were smuggled from India in 2002 .The situation was further compounded due to decline in supply of animals from Thar. Such shortage of meat and consequent price hike was also experienced in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad during this period. It has been reported that government is now considering to import animals from India

This shows mismanagement that prevails in the sector as well as in case of crop sector suggesting that both these sectors of agriculture need attention of policy makers on top priority basis for immediate planning on sound economic parameters for attaining self sufficiency.

Potential Exist In Growing Livestock Sector

Camel and its by-products have great potential of their export to Middle East ,Africa and other countries.

Policy makers and planners of livestock development should seriously consider to establish a national camel research institute in Thal, Cholistan, Thar and Chagai-Kharan based on technical and socio-economic parameters as has been done by India at Bikaner in their Rajisthan desert .

Recent policies to improve livestock by government

Diversification project vital for poverty reduction: Bosan
The present government is giving top priority to achieve selfreliance in agriculture commodities, ensure food security and improve productivity of crops and livestock .. This was stated by Minister for Food, Agriculture and Livestock, Sikandar Hayat Khan Bosan while inaugurating the seminar on Agribusiness Development Awareness organized by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture 1) He said the Agribusiness Development and Diversification Project is one of the most important projects of its kind in agriculture sector of Pakistan.

2) This project's activity will directly improve the condition of over 70%
of the population living in rural areas and will prove a vital policy instrument for poverty reduction in the country.

3) The Minister said the policy objectives are to create an enabling

environment for market led growth by the private sector, adding, the emphasis would be on market oriented production system which will lead to increased production and productivity of crops and livestock sector

4) This will consequently increase the income of the farmers and

decrease rural poverty

5.The Agribusiness Development & Diversification Project at a cost of Rs. 4066 million with ADB loan of Rs. 1860 million is being implemented by the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock in consultation with all the four provinces and the special areas.

Dr. Tusneem assures good governance accountability in PARC

1) Dr. Muhammad E. Tusneem, Chairman, Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC) has said that strategic research could be undertaken only in an environment of science culture based on merit. 2) Addressing an audience of agriculture scientists and technical support officers at National Agricultural Research Centre (NARC) on Sept. 9, he called upon the scientists to keep pace with the challenges of 21st century and work hard towards achieving the goal of qualitative research. 3) The Chairman stressed on the urgent need to sharpen the research focus from conventional to high-tech, futuristic research. He desired doing away with the mundane conventional projects and said that research should be resource based and demand driven focusing on strategic and policy research.

The impact of globalization on poor livestock keepers:

At the same time, there has been a growing demand for meat and milk in many developing countries. Together, these developments present both significant opportunities and risks for the millions of poor people who keep livestock.
Critics warn that the opportunities of globalization have been unevenly distributed and can work against developing countries . Poor livestock keepers, for instance, usually cannot afford to meet the sanitation standards required to trade globally and find it Increasingly difficult to compete at home when cheap export products are introduced to local markets. Increased meat and milk

Production and the processing they require to meet the demands of the global marketplace can have a significant impact on natural resources. The more land is needed for livestock

the more nutrients are taken from the soil, the more deforestation occurs, the more wildlife preserves are threatened and the more wasteland gas emissions are produced.

How all can get benefit from globalization

Poor livestock keepers can benefit from globalization, but only when they are equipped to compete in the marketplace. To keep up with the growing demand for milk and meat, they need disease-control measures to make sure their animals stay healthy, passable roads to get to markets and access to financial services that will support their enterprises.

To be able to comply with stricter food-safety regulations, they need access to refrigeration, and facilities for food processing and storage. With the right tools, organization and training, and with adequate investment for long-term economic growth, poor livestock keepers will be in a better position to tackle the risks of globalization and seize its opportunities. Over the past 20 years, globalization has hit the worlds agricultural sector and opened up its markets to an unprecedented degree. .
