Future Plans


A Step Towards Digitization

To curb all forms of consumer exploitation, LDCMMC has taken a leap forward into the digital world: the Fodder Weight and Rate Surveillance System, and the Asset Management System. Both of these systems are designed to serve specific purposes
The Fodder Weight and Rate Surveillance System is meant to curb overcharging at sale points and false weighing on manual weight scales. Digitized weight scales will help to make weighing more effective. The system will allow controlling rates from a Command and Control Center. In real time, the weight and price of the fodder will be displayed simultaneously at the sale point, Command and Control Center, and the Head Office.


A receipt will be generated to the customer and every transaction will be stored in a database. CCTV and real-time internet connections will help to monitor activities.


The Asset Management System will allow LDCMMC to curb theft of its vital assets, like Khurli and Charpai. These assets are provided for use to the traders. Security of these assets will allow LDCMMC to provide better services to all stakeholders.
The system will allot a unique number, which will be painted on each asset. Each asset will also be given a separate variable that will be followed by a unique identification code.
Asset number, quantity and owner details will be entered into the system, allowing better control and accountability. The Gadgets will be connected to the main database server via the internet. A receipt will be printed on spot for the owner.


The entire process will be implemented using hardware like PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) Smart Phones, Tablets, and Laptops. The advanced Software will allow real time data to be uploaded via the server. All the stations (devices) will be synchronized with the database. The presence of round the clock internet will allow data to be available online at all times.











E-Tagging System

LDCMMC has been striving to introduce the E-tagging system. This state of the art system will not only help to track animals and eliminate theft, but also help generate insightful new data for the Cattle Market. The system will also be used to track health records for each Ruminant. This system is the first step towards a strong, export oriented Cattle Market based on modern lines.



The New Standard of Success

LDCMMC has done wonders after being given control of the cattle markets of Lahore Division. Whether it’s the elimination of mafia or the provision of free facilities or the transparent outsourcing of critical facilities, LDCMMC has never been a disappointment. Fortunately, LDCMMC is committed to continue its success.


Employee Monitoring

Biometric machines have been installed at all of the offices and workstations to improve Human Resource Management. Live reports and real-time monitoring allow more efficient allocation of human resources and better crisis response

Healthier Animals

Free Medical Camp has been established at the Shahpur Kanjran Lahore market. The camp operates all days of the week and provides free medical care to sick animals. The medicines are provided by LDCMMC.

Cleaner Markets

Messi 385 Tractor has been procured by LDCMMC to improve cleaning of the Shahpur Kanjran Lahore market. The tractor is an addition to a fleet of dumpers, lifters, and Karcher machines already being utilized.



LDCMMC & PAMCO

After successfully providing vital services at the cattle markets under its domain, the Lahore Division Cattle Market Management Company has yet again revolutionized the cattle sector of Pakistan. The LDCMMC is pleased to facilitate the concept of Feedlot fattening system in Pakistan.

A high level delegation from the PAMCO (Punjab Agriculture & Meat Company) and LDCMMC visited the Sheikhupura Model Cattle Market on 19th December, 2015. The dignitaries included Mr.Ilyas Ghori (CEO-PAMCO), Mr. Mumtaz Khan (Chairman-PAMCO), Mrs. Irum Shaheen (President-Women Chamber of Commerce), and Dr. Shela Javaid (Founder President-Women Chamber of Commerce) and renowned high volume exporters/importers. The purpose of the visit was to demonstrate the process of feed-lot fattening and show how to segregate animals by weight into separate sheds Many factors responsible for low meat production including insufficient and improper nutrition, lack of veterinary coverage, poor marketing facilities, non-availability of inputs, lack of finances and absence of appropriate and actionable knowledge on feedlot fattening among thefarmingcommunity.

The feedlot fattening means providing special protein-rich diet to calves or buffaloes to raise their weight and also the quality of their meat. Such animals are kept in a yard or a farm in hygienic conditions and not allowed to go for grazing in the fields. The delegations were received by the top-tier LDCMMC staff, including the Managing Director and General Manager-Operations.

The delegation included prestigious dignitaries including the Chairman PAMCO and CEO PAMCO. The delegation were given a short tour of the cattle market and were informed of the importance of model cattle markets for Pakistan’s economy. The dignitaries were also apprised of LDCMMC’s work and the future goal of LDCMMC.

The dignitaries also had the chance to interact with the local traders and farmers present at the cattle market. The rare cattle breeds and buffalos were also in plain sight for anyone interested in eyeing Pakistan’s rich livestock heritage.

The dignitaries lauded LDCMMC’s efforts and were baffled by the prospects of a model cattle market in Pakistan. The dignitaries were also provided detailed information for advertisement and promotion activities at the cattle market.

The dignitaries took keen interest in the Pakistan Livestock Tradeshow 2016 and Billboards and Advertisement Placements at the Model Cattle Market Sheikhupura. Some of the dignitaries booked advertisement placements in advance while some expressed their resolve to not only participate in the Pakistan Livestock Tradeshow 2016, but also explore possible sponsorship opportunities.

A large contingent of media personnel was also present at the cattle market.
