NEW DELHI: A buffalo in Haryana’s Hisar district has fetched its owner Rs 25 lakh.
It is the highest price a buffalo has ever been sold for in India.
Kapoor Singh of Singhwa Khas village in Hisar district bought the buffalo named Luxmi for Rs 2.5 lakh just two years and now he is selling it ten times that price.
The buyer is a farmer Rajiv Sarpanch from Andhra Pradesh.
What is so unique about this buffalo?
Luxmi virtually rains milk. During tis first lactation period, it yielded up to 22.5 litres of milk a day. Into its second lactation period, it yielded up to 28.5 litres of milk a day, says the seller Kapoor Singh.
Into it third lactation period very soon, the buffalo is expected yield up to 30 litres of milk a day.
In fact, Luxmi’s milk yield won it awards of over Rs 3 lakh at catwalk competitions at cattle fairs.
The buyer from Andhra Pradesh, who offered to pay Rs 19 lakh for the buffalo some time ago, is now paying the price demanded by Kapoor Singh because he has his eyes on a cattle competition in his state next year in which the winner animal will get one kg of gold.
With its stellar reputation, Luxmi is his best bet for that competition.
