The Haryana Government has decided to introduce a new concept to facilitate those people who live in high-rise buildings in urban areas, but also want to rear cattle to produce milk.
The Animal Husbandry and Dairying Minister, O.P. Dhankar who was addressing a press conference here today, said that under this ambitious project, which will be first of its kind,about 50 to 100 acres of land would be earmarked in a town to set up ‘PG hostels for cattle’ thus providing a central place for milch cattle.
He said that the government was also in the process to establish dairy industry in urban areas so as to further boost the white revolution in the state. The Government is providing an interest-free loan for up to seven years to set up dairy units of up to 50 milch animals.
Dhankar said that Haryana Governor, Prof Kaptan Singh would inaugurate the three-day Haryana Swarna Jayanti Cattle Fair to be organized at Jhajjar from October 27, 2017, whereas Chief Minister, Manohar Lal would be the Chief Guest on concluding day function on October 29. A catwalk of indigenous cattle will also be organized in the fair. About 15,000 farmers would be invited every day in the male so as to motivate them towards cattle rearing.
He said that for the first time, a fair of quality cattle will be organized with the objective to make Haryana the best state in milk production. In this mega event, about 2500 best cattle would participate. A prize money of Rs nine crore would be given away among best cattle in this mela. People will be able to sell and purchase cattle in this mega event whereas earlier the cattle used to be only displayed in such fairs.
He said that the mela would be organized keeping in view the four aspects of dairy industry like breed, technology, maintaining temperature and fodder. Special emphasis would be laid on all these four aspects through seminars.
Apart from this, prizes would also be announced every day to encourage those who rear cattle. Latest technology of milking would also be displayed in the mela and one such machine on all three days would be given as a prize.
Additional Chief Secretary, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, P.K. Mahapatra and Director General G.S. Jakhar were also present on this occasion.
