Fattening cows means enhancing their size and weight. Cow fattening through high energy feed on the rise in Bangalmori, Chodda Gram, Comilla.
Momena Agro Farm do target to sell maximum cattle on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, the biggest season for livestock sales in the country, as they are fattening cows by using high-energy feed alternatives. Farms pursuing these projects have kept the cows under special care while adopting special nutrition programmes.
More than 200 cows were being fattened in the firm involving special diets designed for a quick growth. At first a cow is de-wormed using drugs, since worms resist growth. Then it is given vitamin supplements for a few days and then kept on a high-energy and high-protein diet to reach a target weight. Also, during the project period, a cow is given preventive medicines so that it does not fall prey to any diseases at all.
