Distribution of Saanen Breed of Goat

Dr. Nadir Khan said that they have distributed 150 goats free of cost in Swat. These goats are also performing well with the local farmers. These goats have started giving birth to the farmers. Farmers feed them mostly tree leaves and green fodder. Even with this diet, the average production is more than 2 liters per day. Farmers can easily increase milk production with good feed. This shows that Saanen Goat in Pakistan can also perform on a small scale.
