I am Pradeep Sharma, resident of Jammu and Kashmir. I am planning to open up a diary farm of 100 cattels in Jammu region. I would like to know few things:
What are the formalities we need to complete like licence or permit to start a dairy
What help department can provide in opening up a dairy farm
Is there holstein breed available in the state
Our strategy is to farm breed the cows, do we have semen available in the state
Can we get a technical assistance from the department like animal health, breeding, consultancy for setting up dairy.
To start a Dairy farm you do not need any specific license except that it should be located at a suitable spot where it does not cause any discomfort to public.
The department of Animal Husbandry provides all possible guidance and technical support for you to start a farm. These include helping you with your project report, identifying quality animals and ensuring proper construction of the farm. Once you start your farm the Department will help you by providing health,vaccination and breeding cover for it.
Yes, crossbred Holstein Frisian cattle are available in the state with various levels levels of exotic blood.
The Department will provide Artificial Insemination facilities to cows at your farm at nominal costs to you.
