Based on the findings of research conducted by National Dairy Research and Development Center (NDRDC), Yusipang, milk supplied by the farmers is of poor quality in terms of adulteration and microbial load. It is imperative that milk indented for production of products should be of high quality with low microbial load.
As a follow up action to the initial findings, a team from the NDRDC in collaboration with the Dzongkhag Livestock Sector, Sarpang conducted training on Clean Milk Production for the dairy farmers of Gelephu Om Detshen. It was conducted from 7-9 January at the RNR Centre, Gelephu.
The training was aimed at improving raw milk quality through implementation of clean milk production practices at the farm level. A total of 101 group members and interested non-group members were trained on production of clean milk including the health of animal, animal shed cleanliness, milking environment, milking procedures, cleanliness of milking utensils and on basic milk quality tests.
The training is expected to improve awareness on clean milk production and improve dairy product quality in near future.
