PAKISTAN - The Balochistan government has chalked out a comprehensive plan to upgrade the dairy and livestock sectors to exploit their full potential and generate economic activities across the province.

Giving an outline of the plan, Livestock and Dairy Development Department Director General (DG) Ghulam Hussain Jaffer on Thursday said some 29 dairy and poultry farms in the province would be overhauled to meet the international standards and achieve maximum outcome.

"The government has also planned to establish new veterinary hospitals and dispensaries for which an amount of Rs 500 million would be earmarked to ensure livestock’s better health and productivity."

He said establishing camel research and milk processing units at Musakhail and Washuk district would also be approved in the coming days.
