According to Meenesh Shah, chairperson of the NDDB, the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) has decided to work with the National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal, to take the research for lumpy skin disease treatment to the farmers.

Speaking at a programme organized to honour the silver jubilee celebrations of the Model Dairy Plant of the NDRI, Shah stated, "We have decided to work together and carry the research work further so that farmers can get the benefits."

Dr Manmohan Singh Chauhan, director of the NDRI, responded to Shah's statement by saying that the NDRI was prepared to give all kinds of support to NDDB.

He urged the farmers not to panic about the increasing number of cases of lumpy skin disease in the state because there is a sufficient vaccine to prevent animals from the disease.

Gian Chand Mutreja, General Manager of the Model Dairy Plant, said Dr Verghese Kurien had inaugurated this plant on August 12, 1997, and so far, they have trained about 650 students. 

He said that the factory has introduced several goods into the market, including ghee, pinni, and kulfi. The Dairy Board was established to promote, finance, and support producer-owned and controlled organizations. The NDDB supports national policies that encourage the expansion of farmer-owned institutions and works to reinforce those policies through its programs and operations. Cooperative strategies and principles are essential to NDDB's initiatives.

One of the leading institutions in the dairy sector, the ICAR-National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) in Karnal, Haryana, has made significant contributions to the development of the dairy industry and milk production in India through its ongoing research.
