Australia-based MoooFarm announced recently that it will be training two lakh dairy farmers by 2020 in areas such as cattle nutrition to boost their earning potential by around 20 percent. The training will be offered through UDAY, MoooFarm’s skill development training partner in India.
“Our master trainers are providing content to farmers for scaling up, which is being delivered through village-level entrepreneurs. Our target states include Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, and Odisha,” said MoooFarm Founder Param Singh.
This is against the backdrop that around 69 percent of milk and milk products sold in India do not meet the standards of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
