A Murrah buffalo belonging from Fazilka has set a new record by producing 26.335 kg milk in a single day during the five-day National Livestock Championship and Expo that concluded on January 12.

‘Rani’, the buffalo, belongs to Sherbaj Singh of Chak Vairo Ke village in Jalalabad sub-division. Sherbaj also won other prizes besides over Rs 7 lakh in prize money.

“We have 70 buffaloes of Murrah breed. We take special care of them. In the first edition of the championship, my buffalo had come first. Thereafter, once again my Murrah buffalo had got the same position. Now, Rani has created a record. The record last year was 24 kg,” he added.

Dr HS Sandha, Director, Department of Animal Husbandry, said, “Sherbaj’s buffalo has set a record in Punjab, but I am not sure whether any Murrah buffalo in Haryana has a better record.”

Earlier, a Holstein Friesian (HF) cow from Noorpur Hakima village in Moga district has set a national record of 66.713 kg milk in a day.
