States Urged To Expand Cold Chains For Milk In Rural Areas

States need to reduce wastage of milk by expanding the cold chain infrastructure in rural areas to collect and preserve milk till it is collected for sale or taken for processing, Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said.

This requires systematic planning for location of bulk milk coolers so that farmers from neighbouring villages can easily access them, the Minister said in his address to a conference of Ministers of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries from different States apart from representatives from various agencies.

Singh said the National Livestock Mission (NLM) launched in fiscal 2015 shall ensure quantitative and qualitative improvement in livestock production systems and capacity building of all stakeholders, adding that the sub-mission under NLM on fodder and feed development will try to address problems of scarcity to boost the livestock sector.

The Minister said the biggest impediment to growth of dairy and livestock productivity was the large-scale prevalence of animal diseases.
