The training will cater to the needs of dairy farmers of Punjab and will cover the basic areas of management like animal nutrition, reproductive disorders, record keeping, marketing of milk and milk products, availing bank loans and health aspects of the dairy animals.
Thirty five farmers from different parts of Punjab have registered for the course. During the training, the trainees will be taken for a visit to the dairy farm of College of Veterinary Sciences and the dairy farms of progressive dairy farmers where they will interact with them.
The course began on May 25 and the inaugural function was presided over by Dr KS Dosanjh, Head, Department of Veterinary & Animal Husbandry Extension, GADVASU. But the classes were discontinued due to law and order problems encountered by the state recently and were resumed on Monday. He emphasized the need for economical milk production in the today's competitive world.
