Dairy Fest 2014
Dairy Sector in India
India has the credit of being the largest producer as well as the biggest consumer of milk in the world. It also has the world’s largest dairy herd (com¬prised of cows and buffalos). In 2010-11, livestock generated output worth INR 2,075 billion (at 2004-05 prices) which comprised 4% of the GDP and 26% of the agricultural GDP. India’s milk production accounts for 16% of total global output. The dairy industry is expected to grow 4-5% per annum. A budgetary outlay of INR 31, 560 Crores is recommended by the working group for 12th Five Year Plan of Planning commission of India for animal husbandry and dairy sector to achieve growth rate of 6%. In the past 20 years, milk production in India has doubled and has reached the 116.2 million tonnes a year thus becoming India’s No.1 farm commodity. The current market size of the dairy industry is INR 2.6 trillion and is estimated to grow up to INR 3.7 trillion by 2015.
The matters relating to livestock production, preservation, protection and improvement of livestock & dairy development comes under Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries of the Ministry of Agriculture, GoI. Value-added products like Whole milk powder, Skimmed milk powder, Condensed milk, Ice cream, Butter and Ghee have immense potential for export.
As per the latest statistics of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), the dairy cooperative network in the country includes 177 milk unions covering 346 districts and over 1, 33,000 village-level societies with a total membership of nearly 14 million farmers. All the statistics given above are indicators of a flourishing dairy sector in India providing suitable opportunities to the industries engaged in the dairy business.
Why Uttar Pradesh?
Uttar Pradesh (UP) is India's most populous state, as well as the world's most populous sub-national entity. It is the second largest state economy in India. UP is the largest contributor to the national milk production contributing around 18% of total milk production in the country. It has got the second highest cattle population and highest buffalo population in the country. Majority of the rural population of the state is engaged either in the livestock breeding or dairying in one way or the other. Thus, the contribution of livestock to agricultural income is 30% in the state. The state is also equipped with a vast network of infrastructure and organizations existing in the dairy sector. Most important and nodal agency of dairy development in the state is Pradeshik Cooperative Dairy Federation established for achieving multiple objectives of increasing milk production, processing and marketing of milk/milk products and development of infrastructure to promote dairy industry within the state.
The statistics given in the chart are clearly indicating that a wide scale network of milk procurement and marketing exist in Uttar Pradesh. Although, UP is the leader in the milk production in the country, the milk yield per animal is low. The main reasons behind this are the lack of use of scientific practices in milking; inadequate availability of fodder in all season; unavailability of veterinary health services; technological bottleneck etc.
Hence, the companies providing latest technology in the milk production & distribution; services & products related to livestock breeding can be benefitted through participation in this jumbo event.
