The Department of Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Services on July 22, 2021 has issued a Community Dairy Farming Scheme (Amended 2021).

The scheme is applicable for new unit and expansion of the existing Community Dairy.

A concept of community dairy farming has been under consideration for long time to facilitate group of people coming together with a common intention to take up dairy farming on a community basis with common infrastructure support. Therefore, it is proposed to encourage such Community Dairy farming with minimum 50 milch animals and with latest ultra-modern dairy equipment such as milk parlour, milk cooler and feed mixing plant etc. which can be availed by community group of minimum 5 members.

Objectives of the scheme are as follows:

• To encourage larger Dairy units by farmers/groups to have dairy farming activities at a common place i.e. Community Group with minimum five unrelated members. 

• To reduce the cost of production by sharing the infrastructure facilities like cattle shed, milk parlour, bulk milk cooler and feed mixing plant. 

• To encourage farmers/Community groups to take up dairy business as an industry. 

• To make the State self-sufficient in milk production. 

• To generate self-employment to the unemployed youth. 

• To provide clean and hygienic milk to the consumers of State of Goa.
