At the time when people are already reeling under the crises wreaked by the Covid pandemic, another jolt to them has come in the form of a hike in milk prices by the Ludhiana Dairy Farmers’ Association of Haibowal and Tajpur Road. The rate has been increased in all three categories of milk by ₹3 from Tuesday.

The revised price of cow milk will now be ₹58 per litre, while the mixed milk will be available at ₹65 per litre. The buffalo milk will be available at ₹73, which earlier would cost ₹70.

As per the association president, due to hike in diesel prices and cost of fodder, they were forced to increase the rate of milk. The price of diesel has seen an increment of ₹4.68 per litre and costs ₹89.6 per litre.

Currently, there are 800 dairy farmers in Haibowal area and 1.5 lakh litre milk is daily supplied in residential areas, to restaurants, dhabas, and sweets shops.

Paramjeet Singh, chairman of Haibowal Dairy Farmers’ Association, said, “Last year, due to the coronavirus outbreak, all dairy farmers had suffered losses following the closure of restaurants, sweets shops and dhabas. For the entire year, we did not increase the price of milk so that people don’t feel burdened. We were planning to increase the price by ₹5, but considering the prevailing situation, we decided to hike it by ₹3.”

Jerry Dakin’s cows have produced milk that helped feed families across the state for decades. Now, the longtime Manatee County dairyman has been recognized as Florida’s Farmer of the Year.
