NDDB strengthening cooperative societies to push dairy growth
National Dairy Development Board said it will focus on strengthening cooperative societies to push development and growth in the sector.
The board's chairman Dilip Rath said that Rajasthan has registered a growth in milk production but there is a need to strengthen cooperative societies network in Rajasthan and other states also in order to make the growth sustainable.
He informed that the board is promoting new income generating activities for dairy farmers.
"Engaging milk producers in multiple streams of income through different alternative activities aimed at their livelihood diversification is important for building their economic resilience and well-being," he said here.
Rath told reporters that bee-keeping, manure management, silage management are among other activities the board is pushing for dairy farmers.
