Dairy farm is a farm where cows are raised for the production of milk and other dairy products. These farmers are involved in a wide range of activities for the purpose of increasing milk production. Milk which is produced on these farms is sold mainly to KMF milk societies or to regional dairy companies for pasteurization and processing. There are number of dairy farms are coming up in the state of Karnataka. Among them, standalone dairy farms and part of integrated farming activity are the two different types of dairy farms. It is found that dairy farms as a part of integrated project and organic milk production are better placed.
Dairy projects those have standalone processing operations are facing sever challenge in the state as processing units cannot compete with KMF which has the advantage of Govt. incentive of Rs.4 per litre, which will be offered only through KMF milk societies.Tag : Dairy,dairy farming, dairy project,milk,organic milk, and KMF
