I own a cow dairy farm.Now im planning to market the milk in a packet. can i pack the milk directly after milking and then store them in milk chiller or first i have to chill them and then packet them?i dont want to separate any fat from the milk.
i am planning to start a dairy farm. as you are already established in feild i want to take guidance from you and plan in proper way, i request you to send me your contact details so that i can get some information......
Chill the milk and do not freeze it. Chill it in bulk milk cooler if possible.If the quantity is less try keeping it in referigerators. Pack it without removing fat.You may charge little extra for your good quality produce. It is not recommended to have a pasteurisation system if the quantity is below 2000 litres. Because you need a packing form fill sealing machine,a compressor to make it work, polythene films etc. regards,mktvm
Thank you for your replies. i have seen a milk chiller from blue star company,can i use that to chill the milk.and can i sell the milk a day after milking is done (like today's milk to supply tomorrow early morning after chilling).
Sandeepnaru - have you started using Blue Star's milk cooler? I am also thinking of using the same. Your feedback on it will be of great help. thanks.
Mktvm - in case filling milk in sachets (1 ltr) with a help of a filling machine, milk needs to be chilled first for which the cooler can be used right ? Also if filled in plastic, how long milk can be kept in normal tempt (not in cooler) in a packet? will it be necessary to keep packets in cooler even immediately after filling the packets? thanks
After 6 months of time I got the exact person in thinking like me. Thank you Sandeep. Am already doing marketing of loose milk. But I wanted to do it in packets way. Did you find the machine to pack in automatic way in cost effective solution. if yes then ping me
