Choudhary Dairy Farm becomes epitome of success in Ramban

RAMBAN: Belonging to a family with an agricultural background, there has been no looking back for Maznoor Ahmed, who at the very beginning had the idea of becoming an entrepreneur by establishing a dairy farm.
According to Manzoor Ahmed, he is 12th pass and runs a Dairy Farm in the name of Choudhary Dairy Farm at Bankoot, Banihal. “I had a small dry fruit shop but that was not enough to meet my family needs and after taking guidance from the Animal Husbandry Department, I decided to start a dairy farm unit” narrates Manzoor.
Manzoor Ahmed met with the officers and field functionaries of Animal Department Ramban and took proper guidance from them to start a small Dairy Unit. “The Animal Husbandry Department provided me with all benefits of dairy farming schemes and guidance to manage the dairy farm on scientific lines.
Manzoor Ahmed started his farm with 4 cows. Later the Animal Husbandry Department sanctioned 4 units of 20 cows for his farm under Integrated Dairy Development Scheme (IDDS) which he purchased from Punjab. “Adding of hybrid cattle heads helped me in doubling daily milk production and income as well” he said with great confidence. The Department also guided him in making cattle shed on scientific lines.
At present, Manzoor sells around 200 liter milk per day in the Banihal Market and records Rs 3.00 Lakh monthly sales with smart profits. Manzoor has engaged four local people to manage the daily work of the farm and taking care of cows. Department has sanctioned one more dairy unit of five cows in his favour, Manzoor added.
Manzoor proudly informed that now he is able to provide all necessary comforts of life to his family members.
“I am very thankful to the Government for providing me financial assistance for expanding my dairy farming work. Now I have planned to enhance my dairy to a modern dairy farming and install all machines like milking machine, Milk Cooler, ATM milk machine and Genset” he added. He also gets full support of his family in carrying out the business.
