Dairy farming has a great potential in Kashmir. And, it is because majority of valley’s population have a limited access to quality milk and other dairy products. The city population suffers most from the unavailability of quality milk.
A small population who live in rural areas and who rear domestic animals such as cows, goats, etc. have adequate supply of quality milk. They not only produce milk for their own subsistence but for also for others who live in neighbourhood and cities.
The role of rural people in milk production and milk processing industries is appreciable. But it is still not sufficient to feed a major portion of Kashmir’s population with quality milk.
The strong demand for dairy farming in Kashmir is also backed by the reality that people don’t want to compromise with their health. People can’t always look for alternatives such as processed milk, powder milk, etc. as they could victim of health issues. Milk is also a daily and essential consumable, so your pricing will not have a much bad impact on customer sales.
There is a vast scope for dairy farming in Kashmir. The local population mostly living in cities, restaurants, tea stalls, and hotels always require quality milk.
That is why dairy farming is a great business in Kashmir but unfortunately local people feel shame doing a job that could make them earn their living, and feed others. In fact, local potential entrepreneurs should be ashamed of becoming an import dependent place.
Opening a dairy farm will not demand you an educational qualification. However, having an education background can benefit you in a several ways. You’ll be required an investment to buy a fleet of cows, housing your cows while building a cowshed, feeds, labour, and several other important requirements.
In conclusion, why do we think that local entrepreneurs should start a dairy farming business is because they will ensure supply of quality milk and at the same will be able to divert all the income that goes for imports.
Many people will be able to find employment. The local population will get access to quality milk. And, a huge impact on your valley’s savings could be stopped.
