More then 50 thousand goats imported for Dashain in Kathmandu

Posted by Anup Baral September 25, 2016 :
Over 40,000 goats have already arrived in the capital for the upcoming Dashain festival from Tibet and India, according to the Kathmandu Metropolitan City. These include mountain goats and sheep from Tibet and ordinary goats from India. Domestic production meets 70 per cent of the demand for goats during the Dashain festival, said KMC officials. Dhanapati Sapkota, chief of the Implementation and Enforcement Department at the KMC, said domestic goats are supplied at cheaper rates than the imported ones. He said the KMC would allocate open spaces for traders to sell their goats. The prices of the goats will not be fixed by the KMC.
