ISLAMABAD: Animal hides worth Rs 1.5 billion were wasted last year as proper measures were not taken to preserve them.
According to Livestock and Dairy Development Department of Punjab government, last year, a large number of hides became useless due to heat and because salt was not properly applied on them.
The Livestock and Dairy Development Department has issued instructions, according to which immediately after slaughtering of an animal, salt should be sprinkled inside the hide.
If salt is not applied within four hours of animal slaughter, the hide is wasted.
Keep in mind that the hide should be kept away from heat, rain and sunshine and the salted hide is spread out in an airy place.
If a butcher cuts the hide, you should deduct Rs 100 from his labour for every cut.
After sacrifice, the sacrificial hides should never be put in a plastic bag.
According to livestock experts, there was rise in waste of hides as Eidul Azha is being celebrated in summer.
