Going upstream following the ascending road to Kurtoe will greet you with thick jungle and the roaring Kurichhu. After crossing the Lhuentse hospital and making your way through broad leaved forests and fallow agriculture fields, you will be greeted by a smiling talkative lady, Aum Sonam Lhamo. She is one of the progressive agriculturists living in a village called Kelung under Gangzor Gewog in Lhuentse Dzongkhag. She has a poultry and a dairy farm.
Back in 2009 she started her poultry farming with a capacity of 100 birds. Then the monthly generated income was lucrative and she used to earn around Nu. 14,000 as net profit per month. Initially, the Dzongkhag Livestock Sector helped in establishing the poultry farm through the provision of construction materials and inputs supplies such as CGI, wire mesh, feeder and water filter along with other necessary technical assistants.
