Milk and milk product supplies
In July 2009 Indian Railway
Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) entered into an agreement with the
NCDFI to procure milk and milk products of NCDFI member organizations. The
agreement is extended periodically and valid till December 2012. During the year
2011-12, many member organizations have supplied milk and milk products to IRCTC
base kitchens and pantry cars under this arrangement.
Marketing of Frozen Semen Doses
With a view to make available
good quality semen doses to the milk producers in the country, NCDFI has been
functioning as ‘carrying and forwarding agency’ of Frozen Semen Doses (FSDs) and
embryos produced by Sabarmati Ashram Gaushala, Bidaj (SAGB) and Animal Breeding
Centre, Salon (ABCS). Both these organisations function under the technical
guidance of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB).
The Central Monitoring
Committee constituted by the Government of India awarded ‘A’ Grade to both SAGB
and ABCS sperm stations. Both SAGB and ABCS are the most modern Semen Production
Stations in the country with most sophisticated semen processing equipment to
produce frozen semen adhering to stringent quality control tests. Both these
farms are accredited with ISO 9001:2000 certification for production, processing
and supply of FSDs.
During the year 2011-12, NCDFI
coordinated sale of 155 lakh FSDs produced by SAGB and ABCS which is 15.6%
higher compared to the previous year.
I would like to specially thank
the millions of our milk producers and oilseeds growers who are the grassroot
members of cooperatives affiliated to NCDFI. They continue to provide the
support to the NCDFI’s activities.
I gratefully acknowledge the
continuing support we receive from the National Dairy Development Board.
I am grateful to the Institute
of Rural Management, Sabarmati Ashram Gaushala and Animal Breeding Centre for
their help and cooperation.
I would like to thank the
Government of India, especially the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of
Defence, the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Railways, the Railway
Board and the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) for their
help and support.
I would like to convey special
thanks to Chairmen and Chief Executives of our member federations who have
actively participated in the different meetings of NCDFI. They have always
provided their valuable support.
I am thankful to state Animal
Husbandry Departments, dairy cooperatives, self employed veterinarians, NGOs,
