The people of Bharwari, Rawal, Kumhar community have been raising Halari donkeys. Now there is a demand for Halari asses. A breed profile has been prepared by the National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources (NBAGR), Government of India. Research has been conducted by the Department of Animal Genetics of Animal Husbandry-Veterinary College, Anand University of Agriculture. They started researching two donkeys. The research was done for 5 years. Prof. of the Department of Animal Genetics. Dr. D. N. Rank, RS Joshi has done a good job.

Milk medicine

Halari donkey milk has medicinal properties. Therefore it is useful in medicine. Scientists at the Isar Research Center in Haryana are conducting research on the use of Halari donkey milk in medical medicine. 11 donkeys of Gujarat have been given to the ISAR institute for research. Maldhari people in Gujarat do not use donkey milk.

A study published in 2019 in the Asian Journal of Dairy and Food Research found that Halari donkey milk contains more antioxidants and vitamin C than dairy animals such as buffalo and goats.

Tennis star Novak Djokovic has reportedly shown interest in donkey milk for his restaurant chain in Peru and China, Serbia. One kilogram of white cheese is sold for Rs 85,000.

Sometimes it is in used for cure asthma, bronchitis, diabetes, abrosis, tuberculosis, and gastric ulcer.

A donkey gives 200 to 250 grams of milk at a time. One litter of milk can be found in the whole day.

Allergic to other milk

People are allergic to buffalo and cow milk and suffer from various digestive diseases. Now donkey milk can be used to cure this disease.


Halari Donkey Milk Dairy will be started in Haryana by NRCE. 11 donkeys sent from Gujarat. It has a program to increase the population. Determined after research on milk in Hisar.

The people of Jamnagar did not know the strength of its milk. It is now known that the price of his milk has increased overnight. What was not sold was now sold by a stranger for Rs 7,000. However, it is not possible to get such a price on a permanent basis.

Dairy research

Scientists from National Dairy Research Institute in Karnal are helping in research. The National Center on Equation (NRCE) in August brought some Halari donkeys from its Bikaner farm in Gujarat’s Mehsana district for research.


Presently, milk is used in Jamnagar to treat cough disease in children. It is an antidote to a big cough. There is no allergy to this milk. It contains a large number of antioxidants.

Contact in Anand

Anand scientists have identified it. Cosmetics have importance in his milk. But now if the Gujarat government did nothing, it would be over in 5 years.

Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt have the most donkeys. Dairy is possible there. But if dairy is to be made in Gujarat, or milk is to be made separately, then a series of its milk collection will have to be made.

Integrity Patent

Along the way, the dairy and government, a voluntary organization of the Khadi camel of Kutch, made milk together and today it is sold at a premium price. Border Dairy started by building a saline camel breeding cooperative and Amul now manufactures chocolate. Anyone who did not take it gets a premium price. Something similar should happen.

Phone in Anand

Scientists in Anand receive many calls every day. The answer is well given. Halari people call. Cosmetics companies are also contacted. But you do not get that much milk. There should be a milk collection center. The Gujarat government needs to do something, the way Hisar institute contacted Anand’s scientists and took 11 animals there.

Donation of seeds in donkey farm

The Government of Gujarat has established a donkey farm at Chansma. There is a need to establish a separate seed donation system to save Halari by creating an organization. Halari breed should be arranged. Otherwise, this breed will become mixed with another breed.

Mumbai offer

The Delhi-based institute has demanded Rs 700 a liter of halari milk. Mumbai’s big industrialists want to build a Halari breed farm in Gujarat. Halari can be saved if the government gives him 100 acres of land. Therefore the project is likely to be viable. The businessman from Mumbai contacted Anand and discussed the issue. This is likely to increase the cosmetics industry. Currently, halari milk cannot be dairy or industry.

8-month stay

A large number of migrations occur after the rain of the halari owners. Do not keep the camel with a halari. The lamb stays in the motherland for 4 months of the monsoon to give birth. 8 months stay.

Government or Amul responsibility

It is the responsibility of the Department of Animal Husbandry to conserve it after its identification by the scientists of Anand. The government or Amul dairy will have to make good breeds and arrange for more milk. NGOs, governments, dairies, and owners have to sit down and plan.

The owners were paid Rs 125 per litter. This amount is less. Also, no person can give Rs 7000 forever.

Survey for milk

Goods of goods

Donkeys generate negligible income. Halari donkeys are difficult to keep without income. Most of the time, moving from one place to another, and the owners load their goods on this donkey and keep 4 – 5 donkeys with it. Halari can walk 30-40 km a day with donkey loads. The white hawari donkeys of Saurashtra are strong, fleshy and carry 30–40 km daily during the migration of rustic migrants.

The reason for not increasing the number

The donkeys do not have land to graze. Pasture land is now under cultivation. Donkeys cannot be kept on forest land. His nature is bad. Their numbers are not increasing rapidly. There is irregular rainfall. Therefore die. Halari cannot be kept because the income of other animals is decreasing. Young shepherds have no interest in animal husbandry. Halari has no use other than lifting weights in the getaway. Now keeping a small tempo. Donkeys have no place in society. It is seen as a stigma. The use of donkeys to pull mines, sand, gravel and trains has been reduced. Nobody cares when sick.
