Expansion of fodder farming

Due to the increase in fodder prices and the shortage of summer greenhouses, 100 people have been funded with fodder cultivation with the aim of avoiding cattle breeding and increasing production.

Distribution of milch cows

209 milch cows will be distributed in seven blocks. Priority for women and young people. The goal of achieving self-sufficiency in milk production is by supplying more cows. There are more dairy farmers in the East.
