Model Cattle Market Sheikhupura is the first Model Cattle Market in Punjab. Honorable Chief Minister of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Shareef inaugurated it on April 2nd, 2015, with a clear vision to provide better and free of charge facilities to Livestock Traders and elimination of commission Mafia, which was prevalent in the previous system. The graph below shows the distribution of visitors by city. The Model Cattle Market covers a total area of 25 acres and consists of 22 sheds for Bovines and small Ruminants; each shed has a capacity to accommodate approximately 75 small and large Ruminants at a time. Although the Ruminants start arriving in Sheikhupura Model Cattle Market from Friday, the Market reaches its peak on Saturday each week. Approximately a trade of 5000 Ruminants takes place in the Model Cattle Market per week. Apart from the core value of providing a convenient market for prospective buyers and sellers, the Model Market also offers a range of support facilities to augment its core service. These include separate buildings for Hotel/Canteen, Dormitory, Mosque, Veterinary Hospital, Front Office, Security Office, Bank, Dispensary, Slaughterhouse and Toilets.
