Bulk Milk Cooler (BMC)

Mother Dairy/National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) has initiated a comprehensive Diary Development Programme under NGC Programme from January, 2008 in Mewat area. It is envisaged that through this programme they would organize milk producers to take up their milk business through Mother Dairy/NDDB to get rid off milk middle man, who are exploiting the farmers by paying only Rs. 12-13/-per ltr. in comparison of Mother Dairy who are paying Rs. 19-27/per ltr. Once this programme is successfully executed, it will help the milk producers to get free from exploitation of milk middle men as milk producers will be getting better option in terms of reasonable milk price and other facilities.

Secondly Mother Dairy is paying special milk price (double axis system) for Cow milk whereas middle men do not take Cow milk or pay very less say Rs. 9-10/per ltr., hence milk producers have lost the interest in producing Cow milk. However, in view of profitability Cow milk sale is more profitable than Buffalo milk reasons being Cow gives more milk and have peak milk production during Summer month when Buffalo milk production remains at minimum level. Therefore, milk producers will take up Cow farming with interest, resulting there will be hike in overall milk production in the area.

So far NDDB has established 26 nos. BMCs (Bulk Milk Coolers) and 15 Nos. AMCs (Automatic Milk Collection Unit) in Mewat area. They have been collecting on an average 8500-9000 liters of milk per day from about 1300-1400 milk producers on Govt. rates. Farmers are getting handsom price of their milk i.e. Rs. 19/- to 27/- per litre for buffalo milk and Rs. 16/- to 20/- per litre for cow milk depending upon quality.

Apart from reasonable milk rates, they are providing other facilities too at farmers door steps viz. good quality balance cattle feed, feed supplements (Mineral Mixtures), dewormer and heat inducing medicines etc. at cheaper rates through commission agents belonging to the same village, almost all the villages are covered under this unique animal health coverage programme.

In view of tough competition from milk middle men in Mewat area, MDA had constituted a team of young persons to supplement the dairy development activities alongwith NDDB during 2009-10. The team of dairy development consisting 6 nos. Dairy Supervisors, 9 nos. of Community Resource Persons headed by a team leader. There is a break through in success of the programme as there are local staff in team and they are able to pass on healthy and encouraging message clearly to milk producers.
