UNB: Livestock farmers across the country are now busy fattening cattle as just one week is left for Eid-ul-Azha, the second largest festival of Muslims when over one crore cattle are sacrificed across the country by Muslims.
Although the use of steroids and harmful drugs for fattening cattle was prohibited by the Fisheries and Livestock Act 2010, dishonest livestock farmers are still using those to make their animals attractive to customers and thus make quick buck.
Farmers in Panchagarh were seen busy fattening their cows by adopting natural method, but an opposite scenario was prevailing in Sirajganj as a section of unscrupulous traders were involved in fattening their cattle by using harmful drugs.
