The valuation of cattle to be auctioned are classified into broadly five heads—cow, buffalo, bull or ox, calf-male and female.
Dhubri is one of the most vulnerable smuggling spots among the 33 areas along the border identified by the government.
It may be mentioned that reports have it that most of the bovines seized in the outposts happen to be males.
