Monday’s milk collection was the highest that Asia’s largest dairy registered after last year’s single day peak that stood at 73.71 LLPD.
“This became possible because of the hard work of our women dairy farmers,” said dairy’s chairman Shankar Chaudhary, adding that Radhanpur and Khemana have emerged as prominent milk shed areas this year.
“We have been supplying 13 LLPD milk to Mother Dairy. Also, we are also supplying milk to Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana,” he said.
Chaudhary said that the milk union is proud that it has lion’s share amongst all member unions of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation which collectively procures 225 LLPD.
