First Batch of 300 Brazilian Cattle Arrived at Sialkot International Airport

The first batch of premium-quality cattle from Brazil landed at Sialkot International Airport, which marks significant development in Pakistan’s agricultural sector. 

The first batch of high-quality cattle from Brazil reached Sialkot International Airport. This step shows an exciting development in Pakistan’s agriculture sector. This is also a big success for the Green Pakistan Livestock Initiative (GPLI), run by the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC). 

The cattle, which have been carefully selected for their superior generic traits, represent nine different breeds. Having this variety is likely to help make better meat and milk all across Pakistan. 

The cows traveled with the American company “National Airlines” on a big Boeing 747 cargo plane. They flew for 22.5 hours all the way from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Along the way, the plane stopped in Angola and Oman before landing at Sialkot International Airport, covering a huge distance of 9,044 miles. 

Many stakeholders and companies helped make the export process easy. Mari Petroleum Company Limited, Fongrow Private Limited (Fongrow), and the ambassadors from Brazil and Pakistan all played important roles.

Upon their arrival, the cattle were transported to Okara, where they will stay for two weeks in quarantine. This precautionary measure is essential to ensure the health and well-being of the animals before giving them to local farmers. By prioritizing the welfare of the cattle, Pakistan aims to support its agricultural community. Additionally, it enhances the quality of livestock nationwide. 

This introduction represents a significant opportunity for Pakistan’s livestock industry. Moreover, with plans like the GPLI, Pakistan wants to make its farming better and more modern. This will help increase how much food the country can produce. 

This arrival of high-quality cattle will not only contribute to increased meat and milk production but also foster collaborations and partnerships between Pakistan and Brazil in the realm of agriculture.
