Punjab Smallholder Dairy Development Project

Punjab Smallholder Dairy Development Project

Population growth is high in this area and pressure on the land is intense. The project targeted livestock owners with small herds, small-scale farmers and landless people. The overall objective of the project was to improve smallholder livestock and milk production and marketing, to boost incomes and the food supply for rural poor people. Specifically, it aimed to:

  • improve animal health and nutrition
  • create marketing networks to sell surplus milk
  • establish farmers’ groups to identify constraints and opportunities for development

Through improved fodder production and animal disease control, access to credit, upgrading of roads, better understanding of markets and investment in milk collection facilities, activities resulted in an increase of about 11 per cent in milk production per cow and an increase in the number of cattle.
