BADIN – A unique and largest donkey market has been hosted in a town of Taluka Matli district Badin and different breeds of donkeys across the country were brought in the donkey market for its seal.
The precious breeds have brought from Punjab, Baluchistan, Khabar-Pakhtukhawan, Kashmir and even from Iran.
The prices of the donkeys ranged from Rs 25,000 to Rs 500,000 this year with a donkey named “Toofan” being the major attraction.
Donkeys with name of Badshah, Rocket, Missile, Toofan, F16, Diesel, Sheela and others were caught the attention of the people of the market. The high-bred donkeys are given high-quality fodder like Desi Ghee, Milk, and Almonds etc.
The festival will continue for three days, in which three thousand donkeys of different breed from across the country are present.
Since decades, the donkey market has been organised on a small scale in Badin after official patronage was granted in 2004, when the then district government of Badin authorised the Taluka Council Matli to allocate the land and imposition of taxes to organise the market
