Rohtak | Minggu, Sep 14 2008 IST
Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today announced to set up a Veterinary University at Hisar, where research activities relating to improvement of cattle breeds would be carried out SO THAT quality Murrah breed of buffaloes would be exported from the state.
The Chief Minister, who was addressing a gathering, during an incentive distribution function to top quality Murrah Buffalo owners at Chhotu Ram Stadium here said, the government would soon export top quality Murrah buffaloes from the state for which a policy would be announced.
He said there was a global demand for Murrah buffaloes and with the export of these farmers would benefit. Mr Hooda also said in the coming days the state government would declare the Murrah breed as 'Black Gold'.
The Chief Minister also said with a view to improve the Murrah breed, the Haryana Government had already sent a project to the Central Government for its approval. He hoped that the project would soon be sanctioned, which would help in getting more financial assistance for the breed improvement programme run by the State Government.
To promote livestock, Mr Hooda said the State Government had taken a number of steps. During the last three and half years, the government had increased the budget of Animal Husbandry Department to Rs 92 crore.
On this occasion, the Chief Minister also announced to increase the incentive prize money being given to the best Murrah breed buffalo owners. Mr Hooda said it is a matter of pride that Haryana is at the number one position in milk production in the country. He asserted that during the last three years, Rs 10.80 crore had already been given to different 'Gaushalas' in the state. The Chief Minister said a veterinary dispensary would be set up in those 'Gaushalas' having more than 2000 cows. Similarly, a veterinary hospital would also be set up in the 'Gaushalas' having more than 3000 cows. The Chief Minister gave away cheques of incentive money worth Rs 4.72 crore to the Murrah buffalo owners, who came from across the state.

Now due to in-breeding and crossing Murrah with other breeds.....there is no pure line available right now, Harayana is the only place where we cud have found one...The previous govts had already implemented this sceme and annonced a prize money for pure breed, but it went in the drain....The project was laid on 4 years back to retain the breed....but it was not success....we have totally ran out of pure Murrah...
On second thots I think this will lead to another scam...INR 92 crore is a huge capital....if judicially spent might lead to drastic changes in animal welfare and health....But then the department and people have to have an attitude to work......who is gonna buy that crap ??
and about the picture...its really a beautiful breed....or rather shud I say an Animal...plz follow the attachment

The Haryana government has introduced a novel scheme named “Adarsh Murrah Gaon” to improve the breed of murrah buffaloes and increase milk production in the state.
Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said under the scheme, all villages having 50 or more murrah buffaloes with at least one-third of them giving 15 litres milk or more per day would be declared “Adarsh Murrah Gaon”.
Murrah breed societies would be constituted in these villages and each such society would be given a grant of Rs 5 lakh, which would be spent on the development, preservation and propagation of murrah buffaloes, he added.
He pointed out that this year 15 villages had been declared as “Adarsh Murrah Gaon”. These were Madina, Kharkara, Gaddi Kheri, Nindana and Sundana in Rohtak district; Kungar and Badhra in Bhiwani district; Mandothi, Dubaldhan, Bahadurgarh, Dighal and Sasrauli in Jhajjar district; Sandhwakhas and Umra in Hisar district; and Ikkas in Jind district.
