Balochistan Silage

MDF Pakistan signed a partnership with a local enterprise, Talha Enterprises, to introduce small bale silage solution for small farmers in Balochistan. This partnership fits well with MDF’s strategy of popularising low-cost fodder solutions for small livestock farmers in different parts of the country. Raising meat and milk animals is one of main activities for large number of small farmers in Balochistan. However, these farmers suffer from low yields and high mortality rate especially in small ruminants due to lack of access to quality affordable fodder solutions. The partnership will enable local farmers have access to affordable and better nutritious alternate fodder in far-flung areas of Balochistan. Food and Agriculture Organisation will contribute to the partnership between MDF and enterprise by helping create awareness of silage among male and female farmers. The collaboration will enable the partner to provide 60kg silage bales.
