GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar Dec 13: The organic eggs, produced without using any chemicals including antibiotics or growth promoters etc at Tramboo Poultries Pvt Ltd here, have got a word of appreciation from an unexpected quarter: The Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Leh.
The appreciation came as soon as the LAHDC noticed the unprecedented demand for the commodity that was introduced by Poultry Marketing Division of Animal Husbandry Department, Kashmir Division through Poultry Development Officer, Leh.
Impressed by the popularity of the brown-shelled organic eggs, the LAHDC councillor for agriculture Phunchok Stanzin has through a communication urged the Director, Animal Husbandry, Kashmir to arrange more supplies during coming days and even the layer birds for Leh during next winter.
The Executive Councillor in the communication writes that “the beauty of the egg is that it is from within our own state and the unit is going to save the state a fortune as an import substitute product.”
The Executive Councillor has appreciated the efforts of the Poultry Marketing Division and Poultry Development Officer, Leh in introducing the novelty product in Leh.
According to reports from Leh the eggs are selling like hot cakes despite their higher price. “This gives a lie to the uncharitable and uncalled for remarks by some hirelings of Haryana and Punjab-based poultry giants who had been enjoying virtual hegemony over poultry market in J&K in general and Kashmir Valley in particular,” said a business manager of Tramboo Poultry Products.
The farm, he said, was producing more than twenty seven thousand eggs a day even during the ongoing winter.
To mention some self-styled experts had ruled out the possibility of layer farming being a success story in Kashmir and had been advocating broiler farming for the Valley. “Tramboos have convincingly proved them wrong by maintaining high production of eggs even during winter,” said the manager.
“Economic adviser to government, Jaleel Ahmad Khan during his recent visit to the farm placed on record his appreciation for the work done by the promoters of the farm,” he added.
