ANAND, 9 November 2020: With a view to promote dairying and rural livelihoods in the Union Territory of Ladakh, NDDB and UT Administration of Ladakh signed an MoU for conducting a benchmark survey in the newly formed UT. NDDB’s dairy potential survey will help prepare a road map to boost dairying in the UT and will help in enhancing income of the rural population in the mountainous border areas.

Dilip Rath, Chairman, NDDB said that NDDB is happy to support the efforts of the UT Administration who have taken the initiative for dairy development in the interest of milk producers in particular and the the cooperative movement in general in Ladakh region.

He further said that the Dairy Board has also offered managerial and technical support to promote producer-owned institutions that remain true to cooperative values.

NDDB proposes to enumerate all the households present in the identified villages irrespective of their dairy animal holding status. NDDB officials would train the nominated coordinators in the Leh and Kargil districts. These coordinators in turn will identify village investigators to be involved in survey, monitoring & supervision of fieldwork.

After completion of the fieldwork over next two months, NDDB will prepare a roadmap for dairy development in the UT region taking into consideration crucial aspects like climatic conditions, suitability of breeds, animal health & AI support, feed & fodder availability, impediments in logistics & supply chain, marketing arrangements etc. The preliminary findings and roadmap will be discussed with the stakeholders, and post discussions a plan would be finalized and shared with the UT administration.
