Union minister for agriculture & farmers’ welfare Radha Mohan Singh recently layed the foundation stone of the milk processing plant of Mother Dairy at Math Banawari village under Kotawa block of East Champaran district, Bihar.
The department of animal husbandry, dairying & fisheries has initiated a number of schemes with the objective of doubling the dairy farmers’ income by 2022. The government has also taken several initiatives to increase the milk production by raising the productivity of milch animals.
The milk processing plant of Mother Dairy will be constructed at an estimated cost of around Rs 11 crore, which is a subsidiary of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB). Spread over an area of 4.5 acre, the plant will have a capacity to handle one lakh litres of milk a day and is expected to start operations within a year’s time.
The new plant will fulfil the dual objective of bringing rural prosperity while enhancing milk productivity in north Bihar.
Over the years Bihar has witnessed a steady increase in milk production which has a tremendous potential in the dairy sector.
