Donkey is hardworking and faithful, there is no doubt about it. Only the barriers are the ways we used that animal. It could be used for riding, carrying loads, transport, or even in place of an electric fan.

Very interesting. Maybe for many people, this will be hard to believe but this is the truth and reality:

Pakistan sets up first donkey breeding farm in Okara​


OKARA – Amid the rise in international demand, the Punjab government has formed the country’s first-ever official ‘Donkey Farm’ in Okara.

Reports in local media cited that the authorities established the top-notch breeding farm to raise some of the best breeds of this working animal.

The breeding farm has been set up in response to the rising demand for donkeys in China and other countries. One of its kind of initiative is said to be the first government-owned facility in the region where American and other breeds of donkeys will be rear for their export to foreign countries.


Reports further said the authorities took the decision in light of the rising demand due to its milk and skin to make cosmetic products and drugs.

Meanwhile, the breeding farm is located near Bahadurnagar Farm which is spread over an area of 3,000 acres. Bahadur Nagar Farm was established in British Raj in 1916 covering a vast piece of land and nowadays it was being used by the livestock department for raising cattle, sheep, cows, and top breed horses.

In the economic survey report 2020-21, it was revealed that the population of donkeys in Pakistan has increased by 100,000 during the fiscal year 2020-21 to reach 5.6 million.

The survey revealed that the number of donkeys has increased from 5.5 million to 5.6 million while it also depicted a hike in the number of sheep in the country.

A 2019 report of a leading publication reveals that China used donkeys for the hides. Almost half of the world's donkeys are expected to be wiped out to satisfy the demand for a gelatin-based traditional medicine called Ejiao.
Why don't they give the donkeys a break from brutal exploitation?
 
On a serious note, if you cross breed a donkey with a horse, you have a khacchar.

A very strong animal and the only time it gets sick is when it’s about to die.

Understand that both India and Pakistan’s army put them to good use in J&K.

I guess khota Biryani was not needed during PTI tenure.
Those poor Khota better run. PMLN is back !!!
 
Aside the obvious Donkeyleauge jokes donkeys are truly beautiful animals which have so many admirable traits. They work hard, love their owners and are fearless protectors of livestock strong enough to take out wolves, mountain lions, hyenas etc.

Well, donkeys are then 180 degrees opposite to the current Pak rulers....
 
Only country in the world that being ruled by Donkeys

Not a first for Pakistan

This is not the first time Pakistan has decided to expand the global donkey skin trade, to aid its friend for donkey’s years. In 2017, according to a report in The Express Tribune, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government had also announced a $1 billion-worth project — ‘Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa-China Sustainable Donkey Development Programme’ — aimed at increasing the donkey population in the province. In the guise of the ‘development’ project, Pakistan hoped to gain additional investment in the agriculture sector under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

It was also reported that a donkey hospital in Lahore and two farms were set up in Mansehra and Dera Ismail Khan in Pakistan.

.

China needs over four million donkey skins each year to meet its requirement for manufacturing cosmetic products and ejiao gel, but the supply of these animals is fewer than 1.8 million, as reported by Chinese state-run news agency Xinhua. From 11 million donkeys in 1992, three-quarters of the population has diminished by 2019 in China. It is estimated that it might take another 20 years to acquire the levels needed for the ejiao industry.
