By ANN Service

PATACHARKUCHI, Dec 1 - Farmers from Bajali subdivision once again shone in the recently-concluded National Livestock and Poultry Show-2019.

The dairy farmers had already set records by producing record amount of milk in the area where at present 22 active dairy farms produce around 42,000 litres of milk daily.

Today, most of the families of the area earn their livelihood by dairy farming. It may be mentioned here that at present milk processing and marketing companies like Amul and Purabi are regularly collecting a sizeable quantity of milk from the area.

Dipankar Sarma, a dairy farmer from Suliapara village was selected for the best farmer award in the recently-concluded National Livestock and Poultry Show-2019 and received an amount of Rs 1 lakh as cash incentive, while one Juna Tamuli Barman, a woman dairy farmer from Bhoskuchiapara under Bajali subdivision received another award and collected Rs 25,000 along with a certificate.

Meanwhile, Dr Hitesh Pathak, BVO of Bajali Block was selected for the Best Veterinary Officer Award and Bimal Sarma�s stall named Bajali Milk Parlour got the Best Stall Award and brought laurels to the area.

Further, it is learnt that the Best Veterinary Officer Award will be conferred on the winner at the ensuing conference scheduled to be held at Goalpara in January 2020.

In the meantime, a cross-section of people of the area have hailed the performance of the dairy farmers.

Exposure trip: In the meantime, a large exposure team from Sikkim led by Dr Basant Remudema, Veterinary Officer in the Department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Science, Government of Sikkim visited the dairy, goatery, milk processing unit, milk parlour and fodder plots at Bajali area under Barpeta district on November 29.

The team was reportedly satisfied with the activities of the farmers of the locality. The artificial insemination workers and bull keepers� exposure trip to Assam was sponsored by the Sikkim Livestock Development Board under the Rashtriya Gokul Mission.
