Amarjeet Singh, a farmer in his late 50s owns a diary farm at Cheemna village in Jagraon. His son, Amaninder Pal, pursuing a veterinary course at GADVASU has accompanied to the state-level livestock championship. The young veterinary doctor says he dreams of running his own dairy farm with over 70 animals rather than jumping into any private job.
Their personal care of their animals ensured that the father-son duo walked away with award for the best Holstein Fresian (HF) cross breed cow in any age group category. They will receive Rs 1 lakh for their efforts. "I give about 40 kg green fodder to the cow on a daily basis apart from concentrated cereals with vitamins, proteins, among others. I take special care of my cow as a compact body, thin face, long tail are important points in judgement," Amarjeet said. The duo had imported semen from Denmark for artificial insemination of the animal. While Amarjeet claims his cow gives 45 kg of milk on a daily basis, it will be put to the test in the milking category on Thursday.
