Why focus on Dairy Development?

India is the world’s largest milk producer, contributing twenty-four per cent of global milk production. This crucial sector also plays a major role in sustaining approximately one-third of rural incomes. However, the majority of Dairy Farmers are small and marginal, with the average animal holding of 1-2 cattle per farmer. These farmers suffer due to rising input costs, low animal productivity, competitive landscape and complex value chains marked by intermediary conflicts. In response to these challenges, we have strategically taken the Dairy Development Program with the purpose of improving animal productivity, creating an effective value chain and providing access to an organized market. Our overarching goal is to promote the development of dairy farmers, ultimately resulting in their improved income while ensuring the overall viability of the dairy sector.
