Farm animals suffer food crisis in Dinajpur

Farm animals suffer food crisis in Dinajpur
Thousands of farm animals are facing food shortages in flood-stricken Dinajpur.

District livestock official Abul Kalam Azad on Friday said the crisis was created due to floodwater submerging large swathes of grassy fields and around one-and-half metric tonnes of straw, reports bdnews24.com.

Almost 600,000 livestock animals are suffering from the crisis. The numbers include 372,000 cows, over 200,000 goats, 11,000 sheep and hundreds of buffaloes.

An urgent supply of 10,000 metric tonnes of animal feed has been released by the government, which is expected to reach the district in the coming couple of days, said Azad.
