Promotion of dairy farms needed

It is encouraging to note that Rajshahi Dairy and Cattle Development Farm has been playing a pivotal role towards boosting milk and meat production through the best uses of modern technologies in the region. Located on 92.43 acres of land at Rajabarihat area under Godagari Upazila in the district, the farm contributes a lot to breed up-gradation of cattle side by side with slashing down the protein deficiency through enhancing milk and meat production.

The farm yields 170-180 litres of milk, one ton of cow-dung and 8,000 kilograms of grass at present every day.

As a matter of fact, protein is the vital nutrition for normal growth and development of brain and other essential nourishments of human body while dairy sector is the pivotal source of nutrition. The country has immense prospects of expanding the dairy sector through the best uses of its existing natural resources. The sector can meet up the nutritional deficit especially meat and milk on the one hand and can contribute to enriching the soil nutrient on the other.  Indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers and harmful pesticides is playing havoc with the fertility of soil. Lack of animal protein like milk, meat and egg causes malnutrition. Production of huge amount of meat through the indigenous beef-cattle improvement can supply low cost meat for people and it will ultimately protect them from malnutrition.

What is needed is extending logistic supports and motivation of people about the importance and utility of artificial insemination programme in the interest of enhancing meat and milk production through further expansion of the sector. Milk production can be enhanced greatly through only cross-breeding the cows.

The vast youth force in the country can be engaged in the dairy farms. It can solve unemployment problem greatly. A family can earn a substantial amount of money by selling milk from the cows it rears after meeting its demand. The government, particularly the ministry and the department concerned, can provide necessary financial and logistic supports to the people willing to undertake dairy farming and other related jobs. Provision of bank loans on easy terms and conditions and adequate training to the jobless youths can give impetus in this regard. Generation of awareness can also bring the desired results.
