How Dreams Turn Reality

It was this energy that was unleashed when Dr Verghese Kurien along with Shri Tribhuvandas Patel, embarked upon the journey of organising scores of small farmers who had been marginalised in the social and economic realm. The inspiring leadership of Patel and professional commitment of Dr Kurien was first manifested when the small Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers Union, often known as Amul Dairy which had begun its journey with just two village dairy cooperative societies and 247 litres of milk in 1946 was entrusted to Dr Kurien in 1950.

Developing Indian Cattle: A Prospective Approach

Crossbreds are more productive but their tendency to wilt under Indian conditions of low input and harsh climate and susceptibility to tropical diseases warrants the conservation and development of indigenous breeds. To this end the Indian government has introduced the Rs 5,000-million Rashtriya Gokul Mission which aims at conserving and developing indigenous cattle breeds in a focused and scientific manner. This programme will cover genetic improvement of 13 buffalo breeds as well.
