 Although the import of Brahama breed cattle is not allowed in the country, raising the particular breed is profitable, risingbd.com
 The farmers are interested in raising the Brahama breed due to its beef. The farmers stop raising high-yielding cows to raise the Brahama breed.
 As a result, there is a shortfall of milk in the country. The government banned farming Brahama breed in 2016. However, the farmers are raising Brahama cattle in Dhaka defying the ban. On July 6, Customs officials seized 18 Brahman-breed cows at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA).
 The animals were later handed over to the Livestock Department, said Md Abdus Sadek, deputy commissioner (preventive) of Dhaka Customs House.
 Dr Bhobotosh Kanti Sarkar, Deputy Director of artificial reproduction division of the Livestock Department said that the government started producing Brahama breed cattle through the local farmers in some districts after procuring semen from the USA.
