National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) has come to the relief of the dairy farmers in Assam who are reeling under the current flood situation.
As Assam is facing a catastrophic flood disaster causing loss of life, property and livelihood, dairy farmers are left out with low availability of feed and fodder affecting their livestock.
NDDB has extended its help by donating 500 MT of cattle feed worth Rs 1.5 crore for distribution to the dairy farmers of flood affected areas of the state. The distribution is being carried out by Purabi Dairy using its existing network of farmers, in coordination with the local authorities.
The cattle feed is supplied from the recently commissioned 50 MTD cattle feed plant of WAMUL, located at Changsari.
“Following Assam government’s praiseworthy efforts to help the flood-affected people of Assam, team WAMUL is happy to execute NDDB’s initiative of distributing cattle feed through WAMUL’S network of farmers to all the flood-affected farmers of the region during this hour of crisis,” a Purabi Dairy spokesperson said.
