This black beauty, named 'Kala Pahar' (black mountain) is expected to be sold by its owner, Nilufar Begum, for Tk20 lakh ahead of Eid-ul-Azha

A Friesian bull is currently being reared in Rajbari's Pangsha upazila, which currently weighs 25 maunds, or roughly 933 kilograms.

This black beauty, named "Kala Pahar" (black mountain) is expected to be sold by its owner, Nilufar Begum, for Tk20 lakh ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.

The sheer size and stature of the bull has already garnered attraction of locals and visitors alike, who are flocking to Nilufar's dairy farm to have a glimpse of the Friesian bull.

Nilufar told Dhaka Tribune she has been nurturing Kala Pahar for the past three years, taking care of the bull herself, feeding it only natural food and letting it grow organically.

"Kala Pahar currently eats 40kg green grass every day," she remarked, "As well as corn, paddy chaff and hay."

She added she has 15 bulls ready for sale this Eid, but Kala Pahar is the largest of the lot.

Dr Prabhas Chandra Sen, livestock officer at the Pangsha upazila, said Pangsha has consistently been a hub from where quality cattle are supplied across the country.

He added his office provides regular support and advice to dairy farmers on how to take care of their cattle.

Bangladesh has a total stock of 11.18 million cows, buffaloes, goats, and sheep ‘ready for Eid slaughtering' this year; slightly up from the previous year.

Preparations have already been taken, including the sacrificial animal stock, to supply healthy goats, sheep, buffaloes, and cattle in markets for Eid-ul-Azha.

4.58 million cows and buffaloes, 7.20 million goats and sheep, and a large number of other sacrificial animals will be available this year to be slaughtered, department of livestock services (DLS) confirmed the figure at a meeting held recently.

Earlier, the number of illegal entry of Indian cows was 2.4 to 2.5 million annually, however, only 92,000 cows had entered Bangladesh in 2018.
