Improving the lives of millions of dairy animals in India
We recently signed a MoU with the National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) to promote high welfare dairy management across India.
A growing number of the country’s 300 million dairy animals – collectively the world’s largest herd – are living in intensive farming systems in overcrowded, barren conditions causing immense suffering.
Thanks to your support we will now be working with the NDRI to recommend dairy animal welfare in a range of Government of India policies and programmes. This is off the back of our launch of the National Code of Practices for Management of Dairy Animals in India last year.
The NDRI will be encouraging the use of the Code of Practices to academics, and in internal government training. Going forward the high welfare management practices will be implemented at the cattle yards managed by the NDRI.
The National Code of Practices for Management of Dairy Animals in India covers all aspects of the industry - from advice on breeding and husbandry, through to guidance on how animals should be fed and housed. Basic hygiene, sanitation and guidance on record keeping are also included.
With your support we plan to drive even greater change to enrich the lives of millions of dairy animals in India. You are helping us shape the future of the dairy industry to make sure it is sustainable, giving dairy animals a better chance of improved care and protection.
