Dr Waran's Livestock Management Consultancy is a pro-farmer agency providing professional consultancy services directly for the dairy farmer or any agency that is willing to adopt a pro-farmer approach in their business undertaking. However, Dr Waran's Livestock Management Consultancy clients also include agencies such as NGOs, MFIs, Banks, Donor Agencies, Insurance Companies, Government departments, etc. all of whom would like to have a pro-farmer approach in their business model.ASK any dairy farmer whether she / he is satisfied or happy with the economics of rearing dairy animal or do they find it profitable. The answer in the majority of the cases would be in the negative!
This is inspite of all milk companies / traders / especially the milk cooperatives all over India shouting hoarse that they are paying the best price for the milk they purchase from their dairy farmers!! Unfortunately, their own dairy farmers / suppliers / members do not believe them!!!
This is the very reason why so many adult cows and buffaloes (those not producing milk, temporarily) of excellent germ plasm / genetics land up with the slaughter house for beef.
So, why do the dairy farmers even then rear dairy animals and continue to sell milk to the milk companies / traders / cooperatives? Detailed study of answers to such probing questions may throw some enlightenment on this. However, would it be practical for every new entrepreneur or existing dairy farmer to do such studies or do they have the time and money for it? Highly doubtful. Other new comers look and sieve through the plethora of information available on the internet for information, information that has no responsibility for their success / profitability.
So, what is the solution? Either outsource it or obtain it ready-made from experienced professionals.
