Centre aims to increase milk production to 300MT by 2019-20

KARNAL (HARYANA): The Union Secretary for Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, Devendra Chaudhary Tuesday has stressed on increasing the milk production by 300 MT by 2019-20 in order to double the income of the farmers.

While visiting facilities of ICAR-NDRI and NBAGR in Karnal (Haryana) last week, Chaudhury discussed with scientists on “National Bovine Genomic Centre For Indigenous Breeds And National Action Plan on Bovine Breeding” and urged them to work towards enhancement of productivity in indigenous breeds of cattle, as more than 80% of indigenous animals are with small and marginal farmers and landless labours yielding 3kgs of milk every day.
