'Enhance income with dairy farming'

Dairy farming is ideal for farmers to progress as it provides money once in every 15 days.

The farmers instead of selling the milk to private dairys, should the sell the same to milk producers unions and should utilise the money for their welfare, said Kolar-Chikkaballapur Milk Union Ltd former president Kadenahalli Nagaraj.

He was speaking after inaugurating the 181st dairy at Chukkanahalli, a border village in the taluk on Saturday. A dairy will be opened in villages where 100 to 150 litres of milk is produced on a daily basis, he added.

He appealed to the directors of the dairies to be ever vigilant. They should call a meeting every month and should brief the members on the loss and profit, he added. The dairies at Mallanayakanahalli, Devarayasamudra, Timmaravutanahalli and Motakapalli in the taluk were closed following misuse of funds by secretaries of milk producers unions.

“The owners of the private dairys pay more to farmers where there are KOMUL dairys.

Otherwise they pay very less to farmers. Hence, farmers/members should be careful and should register themselves under the Yashaswini scheme by the end of the month,” added Nagaraj.

Hostel facility

He said free hostel facility will be provided to children of the farmers who are studying in Bangalore. “Further a purse of Rs 5,000 will be given to meritorious students. For this the farmers have to ensure quality supply of milk,” he added.

Zilla Panchayat members K R Kittappa, Srinivas, former member B V Samegowda, leader Munianjinappa, Taluk Panchayat member Vijayalakshmi Chandregowda and member Sudha Timmaraju and RMC vice president K N Sonnegowda spoke on the occasion.

MN Halli Pragati Bank Manager Rangappa, GP member Raja Reddy and others were present.
