Call to uplift local dairy industry
By Buddhika Samaraweera
We hope the Government that comes into power will implement an expeditious programme to uplift the local dairy industry, said the President of the All Ceylon Dairy Farmers’ Association, Susantha Kumara.
“Almost all politicians often talk about uplift of the local industries, but so far no one has implemented a programme in that regard,” he said.
He also said the implementation of projects such as importing milch cows from countries such as Australia would not benefit the local dairy farmer. He said that if large sums of money spent on such projects were given to the local dairy farmers even on a recoverable basis, it would be of great help to uplift the local dairy industry.
