The state government under the vision of Shri Modi has played a pivotal role in strengthening the dairy sector of Gujarat. Consequently, milk production in the state has increased by 68% during past decade
Gone are the days when the cattle owners used to migrate from the drought-prone regions in the state for greener pasture almost every summer. The government has undertaken a project to grow fodder on 67,000 hectares in the Banni region in Kutch: Shri Modi
In Gujarat, the milk production has increased by 68% in the last decade. I can proudly say today that the Delhi government won’t get tea unless Gujarat provides milk to it: Shri Modi
Gujarat has been consistently clocking impressive agricultural growth rates. This has been possible because the government has focused on improving not only irrigation, quality of seeds and power but also tertiary sectors like animal husbandry. The growth of the animal husbandry sector has resulted not only in increased milk production but has also provided a boost to the overall agro-economy of the state.
The state government under the visionary leadership of Shri Modi has played a pivotal role in strengthening the dairy sector of Gujarat..
The cooperative sector has been the key driver of the tremendous increase in Gujarat’s milk production. It is no surprise that Gujarat, the birthplace of India’s white revolution, has a thriving milk cooperative sector. The largest dairy co-operative in India, Amul, is based in Anand, Gujarat.
The milk cooperative sector in Gujarat started in 1942 with one milk cooperative union and only two producers. Today, it has grown impressively and includes 16,100 unions with 3.20 million milk producers contributing milk twice a day. Nearly 11-lakh cattle owners in Kathiawar and Kutch region are a part of this cooperative sector. Furthermore, women, have played an integral part in ushering in this white revolution. The number of milk societies formed and run by women has jumped from 800 to 2,250. In the last ten years, the share of cooperatives has increased from 46 lakh litres to 100 lakh litres per day, in value terms from 2400 crore to 12, 250 crore over a period of 10 years.
Talking about the White Revolution, Shri Modi said, “In Gujarat, the milk production has increased by 68% in the last decade. I can proudly say today that the Delhi government won’t get tea unless Gujarat provides milk to it.”
Because of Government efforts, Gujarat today is not only self – sufficient but Gujarat’s dairies send 20 lakh litres of milk to Delhi, 8 lakh liters to Mumbai and 5 lakh liters to Kolkata, along with supplying milk powder to our armed forces.
Krishi Mahotsav and Animal Husbandry
Shri Modi, in all his speeches, emphasizes the importance of innovation and scientific approach. This vision of his extends to the agriculture and animal husbandry sectors and has resulted in the formulation of the Krishi Mahotsav, an annual event. The Krishi Mahotsav aims to promote scientific farming techniques and has truly revolutionized the agriculture and animal husbandry sectors in Gujarat. During Krishi Mahotsavs, ‘Krishi Raths’ which, incorporate a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, horticulturists & agriculturists visit Gujarat’s villages to train and educate the farmers. This initiative has substantially benefitted the Animal Husbandry sector.
