Punjab is the biggest agricultural province of Pakistan that has the largest percentage of livestock population and farmers. Government of the Punjab is working ambitiously in developing the livestock infrastructure coupled with special focus on the dairy chapter as this is the key sector which can uplift and stabilize the ambivalent economic conditions of our country. Our government is making an extraordinary effort to increase the livestock products and byproducts through modern technologies and value chains for transforming this sector from subsistence to market-oriented farming. May Allah Almighty prosper the people of Punjab.

The pursuit of excellence in livestock and dairy development is a noble and rewarding challenge for the substantial biological need of human being. It is an immense pleasure for Livestock and Dairy Development Department, Punjab to render its services for uplifting the socio-economic status of livestock farmers who are burning the midnight oil for fulfilling our ever increasing nutritional demands in the form of milk, meat and eggs. Our department has been carrying extensive reforms in policy framework, human resource development, functional review/reforms, and dairy production enhancement schemes which are mainly focused on reducing cost of production and increasing unit productivity. The underlying objective of all these efforts, transformations and livestock projects launched at grass root level, is to develop livestock sector of the province to meet the upcoming challenges, and to realize its untapped potential.
