Grand farewell for 25 lakh buffalo

on August 15, 2013

Chandigarh: A Haryana village is all decked up to give a grand farewell to a buffalo, which was recently sold for Rs 25 lakh to a farmer from Andhra Pradesh. Owner of the buffalo, Kapoor Singh is a farmer and he invited over 2000 guests from across the state to witness the function at Singhwa Khas village in Hisar district. 

Singh has also made arrangements to provide lunch for all the guests. The farewell party is expected to cost him around Rs 2 lakh.
According to Singh, the Andhra farmer Rajiv Sarpanch who bought the buffalo on Tuesday would arrive on Sunday to take the buffalo home.
Special silver ornaments worth Rs 25,000 have also been bought to deck up Lakshmi, which was the show-stopper buffalo at the Murrah catwalk two years ago in Jind.
Senior government functionaries, including director general of state animal husbandry and dairying department KK Dangi, would also attend the function.
“The latest deal would boost the morale of farmers to rear good animals in Haryana,” Dangi said.
Lakshmi, adjudged the best buffalo at Muktsar cattle fair earlier this year, has till now bagged prizes worth Rs 3 lakh in milk yield and other contests. Sarpanch spotted her at Muktsar cattle fair in Punjab. One of its male calves was also sold for Rs 3 lakh.
“I did not want to sell the buffalo. So, I quoted an unrealistic sum of Rs 25 lakh for the buffalo to the middleman because Rajiv had offered me Rs 19 lakh afew months ago. But he agreed for the deal as he seemed determined to acquire Lakshmi. He gave me Rs 5 lakh as advance,” said Singh, who gave Rs 50,000 each to two middlemen for brokering the deal.
