  • Background of the Project

    Being an agricultural country, Bangladesh is blessed with different domestic animals and as a result cattle-keeping practices are in abundance in the country. One can hardly find any rural house not having at-least a single cattle-wealth. Farmers’ keep cow, goat and buffalo among others, not only for meat purposes but also for a healthy and nutritious dietary supply source - milk. But milk yielding by local breed of cattle is very poor. Even though few areas of the country like Munshiganj, Serajganj and Pabna are famous for cattle rearing and thereby producing surplus quantity of milk. The farmers of these areas maintain a portion of improved variety of cattle in their herds. There are some other areas too at present producing higher quantity of milk by practicing cattle-keeping with improved variety and also there are some offshore areas producing buffalo milk. But due to the lack of access to the proper marketing channel those are not appropriately contributing in the national grid of milk supply. As a result, the total productions of milk in the country do not cater the demand compelling huge investment of foreign currency for milk and milk products import.
