Rearing of Yak is an eco-friendly economically important tradition in higher elevations. Yak population is more than 10 millions world and signifies a social and cultural fabric of people living mostly in trans-Himalayan range. Yak are reared under free range system and found in alpine and sub-alpine region between 3000-5500m above mean sea level and fed on natural pastures and meadows. They are used as pack and draught animal besides providing milk, meat, hair and hide to the farmers as extra revenue.
