Future of poultry industry

PAKISTAN - There are two poultry farming systems in Pakistan - the small scale or rural, and the large scale or commercial poultry farming. The latter did not exist till 1963.

In 1977, the government decided to improve and develop the rural poultry farming on commercial lines. New breeds like Fayoumi, Dhoki and Red were introduced as these were capable of producing 200-220 eggs per year.

Besides, training, free vaccination, feed management, and cooperative societies for establishing small poultry farms of 50 or more birds were planned. as a result this sector developed considerably.
