Some major animal husbandry carried out by Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi farm are;

Goat rearing

Goat rearing has been flourishing in Nepal as a result of the rising demand for goat meat and milk. The topographical landscape of the nation is suited for producing goats, making it a prime location for industrial goat farming.

The farm at Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi has been primarily raising goats and specializing in goat husbandry. They are mostly raised for meat, while other valuable byproducts from these animals include dung, fiber from goats, and wool from sheep. Moreover, the organization has been providing many families in Gorkha with a healthy supply of milk without having to drive to the grocery store. 

Buffalo Rearing

In Nepal, rearing buffaloes is a profitable business with great potential for creating jobs and money for the local population. Buffalo is a versatile mammal that produces milk, meat, skin, and manure. Buffalo is the main livestock product in Nepal, producing more than one-third of the country's meat and more than half of its milk.

Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi Farm has been rearing buffalo for producing meat, horns, hides, milk, butterfat, and power, as well as for plowing and transporting people and crops. This organization has been providing various quality buffalo products to the people of Gorkha-1 Municipality at affordable price.

Fish farming: 

Fish farming is one of the flourishing occupation in Nepal. In various regions of the nation, the soil type and climate are also appropriate for the construction of fish ponds and these farmed fish provides high-quality protin for human needs. There are more than 6000 rivers in Nepal which provides fresh water resources for fish farming, and Gorkha is one such region. 

Since the demand of fish have been increasing in the country, Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi Farm has been doing a lot of fish production lately. Since the country's fish production has not meet its fish consumption demand, the import of fish is in increasing trends. As a result, Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya has been actively engaged in the fish farming industry in an effort to meet the demand and benefit the local farmers. 

Other specific tasks you might carry out as a volunteer for this project include irrigating fields, harvesting crops, eradicating harmful plants, fertilizing crops, taking care of farm animals, helping to make handicrafts, and any other tasks that may come up.
