Rasulpur (Bihar), Aug.9 (ANI): A two-and-a-half-month old goat, who is still on its mother’’s milk, is lactating milk from its underdeveloped udders to the surprise of everyone in Rasulpur Village in Bihar’’s Dharbhanga District.
Mohammad Iqbal, the owner of the goat, is at his wits end to explain how the kid yields milk without reaching maturity.
“The kid is two-and-a-half months old and gives around 1.5 litres of milk per day. The surprising part is that it is not fully grown up. Neighbours remain curious to take a glimpse of this goat,” said Hamid, Mohammed Iqbal’’s neighbour.
The milk is used at Mohammed Iqbal’’s home, as his son likes the delicious milk.
“I drink the kid goat’’s milk daily these days, as it tastes sweet. I also give them to other people for having it. Besides, I play with this goat kid and take complete care of it,” said Mohammad Saddam.
Iqbal feels it’’s a God’’s blessing, though some villagers consider it as divine occurrence for their place.
Veterinarians near the village, view it as a just another unusual case.
“Though this should not be termed as an ordinary case but it’’s not impossible yet. May be the level of the milk producing hormones of this goat kid have increased which is producing the milk even before its growing completely,” said Dr. Vinod Kumar Singh, Head of the Veterinary Clinic, Hanuman Nagar, Darbhanga.
