                 Importance of Milk Production in
                  Pakistan’s Economy & Society

   30 – 35 million people in Pakistan are engaged in Livestock rearing
    (Economic Survey of Pakistan)

   35 to 40% of the total income of these families comes from livestock
    (Economic Survey of Pakistan)

   During 2008 – 09, Pakistan produced a total of 42 billion liters of milk worth
    US$ 18 billion (at retail price of Rs 35 / liter). In view of this the country is
    the 4th / 5th largest producer of milk in the world yet it is a net importer.

   In terms of retail value, milk produced in the country is more than 11% of
    the country’s total GDP (US$ 165 billion - CIA Fact book)

   Milk production has created millions of jobs in production, collection,
    processing & distribution.

                        Dairy Industry Structure

   Total herd size is 62.9 million animals

   Average number of animals per household is less than 3

   More than 90% farmers are small producers

   Average daily milk production per animal is less than 4 liters as opposed to 33
    liters per day for the developed world

   On the average, 8 Pakistani milk producing animals are equal to 1 animal of
    the developed world.

            Low yields & small average herd sizes have resulted in
          sub-subsistence level living for millions of people in Pakistan

                     Productivity Gap – Milk Production…

   Unlike the developed world, research & development on local breeds has
    been marginal over the past 6 decades

                  Productivity Gap – Meat Production…
      Meat production is an important byproduct                  Meat Production
       of dairy farming

      In 2009, Pakistan produced 2.88 MT meat,                     Poultry
       dairy animals contributed 48% of total meat                   20%      Beef
      Exotic beef breeds are more suitable for
       meat production

                   Pakistani Sahiwal & Cholistani Cattle Issue

   Sahiwal & Cholistani cattle breeds are amongst the most hardy
    & extreme weather tolerant animals in the world

   Dairy farmers in Central Punjab, South Punjab & Upper Sind
    mostly have these types of breeds because of their high
    temperature tolerance

   Although breed yield averages are around 1,750 liters but there
    are animals with milk production potential of over 30 liters per

   These elite animals are available in very small numbers and
    held by private individuals around the country

   It is unfortunate but no concerted effort has been undertaken
    to develop these breeds & thus they are withering away

                           Pakistani Buffalo Issue

   With 29.9 million animals, nearly 48% of
    Pakistan’s total milking herd producing 64% of
    the country’s milk requirement is the buffalo

   With high maintenance cost and low milk
    production, this animal offers negative returns
    to its owners currently

   This animal is least researched upon yet much
    talked about by Academia & Government

   Although breed yield averages are around 1,700
    liters but there are animals with milk production
    potential of over 25 liters per day

   Since this is a local animal, there is no imported
    semen available for genetic up-gradation

      What Are The Pakistani Dairy Farmer’s Current Options…

    With just 6% semen availability, Pakistani farmers use “natural service” for
     their animals 94% of the times
    A cursory evaluation of the 6% available semen will reveal:
         Government produced semen is priced at Rs 35 to 65 per dose but has
          marginal to very poor quality
         Private cottage industry produced semen is priced at Rs 50 to 250 per
          dose but has very poor quality
         Imported semen is only for cattle & not buffalos and is priced
          prohibitively at Rs 300 (for acceptable quality) to upwards of Rs 8,000
          (for top quality)

Locally produced semen is of marginal quality while high quality imported
 semen is beyond affordability hence artificial insemination rate is only 6 %

    marginal and uneven

   Jassar Farms business model seeks to achieve economic and social returns at
    the same time

Project’s Partners:

   Jassar Farm has partnered with Acumen Fund in an embryo transfer program to
    bring in world class genetics in Pakistan
