The confidence of the private sector is high and international investments are increasing.” More than 100 delegates involved in the agricultural industry, investors, institutions and entrepreneurs gathered at the first Middle East-Pakistan Agriculture and Dairy Investment Forum last week.


  1. Dear Friend
    Me intend to build a dairy farm in which the prime focus is to build a shed for cows. We have the required land under our own ownership &
    also have 3 Lakhs PK Rs to build the same; however, we need the money to purchase cows. We have decided that whoever will purchase for us 20 Australian cows, we’ll
    repay him the lump sum within two years on monthly installments of 50,000PK RS & will also make him our 50% partner in our farm business.We’ll look after the farm ourselves.
    Whoever will get us 20 cows bought, we’ll give him a cheque as a testimony ,equal to the cost spent on cows’ purchase. We’ll also write an agreement affidevit stating the
    50% partnership of the one giving us loan since we dont want to get interest based loans from banks. We belive in pure business, free of any interest on loans that may spoil
    our good deeds. If any further agreement or proof is required in this regard,we are ready to serve for the same. We live in district Sargodha’s village ‘Bhera’
    where our property is located & we desire to build our farm there. Pls advise us further in this regard. Looking forward for your swift response.

    Pls find below the estimate chart of Dairy farm set up. We have the capacity for 20 cows. If you are willing to do business with more than 20 cows, you will be purchasing the land on your own. However, in that case we’ll be looking after the complete farm ourselves & will work under your supervision & ownership.
