Lumpy skin disease badly affects beef business in Peshawar


In the wake of lumpy skin disease in cattle, the dwellers of Peshawar have almost abandoned purchasing beef that has badly affected the job of thousands associated with this business.

President Tanzeem Al Quresh Beef Association Nazar Gul said on Monday that exaggeration regarding the lumpy disease in animals has affected the slaughtering industry to a ratio of 80 percent. He said around 0.2 million big animals were being slaughtered on a daily basis in Peshawar; however news regarding lumpy skin disease has reduced the number of slaughtering animals to only 40000 that was 80 percent less than earlier.

He said a large number of people directly or indirectly associated with the business of beef have become jobless. —APP
