This buffalo was sold for Rs. 25 lakh

Lakshmi from Rohtak in Haryana has a new home. She is headed to Andhra Pradesh with a farmer who bought the prize buffalo for a whopping Rs. 25 lakh.

Lakshmi is a "Murrah," a special breed of buffalo known for high milk yield. Her owner, Kapoor Singh, of Singhwa village in Rohtak had bought her for Rs. two lakh two years ago and says she is "special."

Ever since he named her Lakshmi for the Goddess of Wealth, says Mr Singh, she has brought him much money. The buffalo, the farmer claims, yields up to 32 litres of milk every day. She has also won many prizes at shows at the state level, earning Rs. three lakh in prize money.

Among those who have praised Lakshmi at such shows are Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, he says.

And now, he has earned a profit of Rs. 23 lakh with the sale to the farmer from Hanuman Junction in Andhra Pradesh. He says even Lakshmi's calf fetched him Rs. 3 lakh.

The government veterinary in Mr Singh's Singhwa village says more farmers here are now breeding Murrah buffaloes. Haryana is known as the home of the Murrah, which are now bred all over the world.
