PDFA-Creating a platform for Dairy Farmers to get the best Technologies

We visited the Punjab progressive farmers (PDFA) event from 10th to 13th Dec 2021 at Jagraon, Ludhiana at Punjab. We came back highly inspired to see a very innovative agriculture event, which is organized by farmers to ensure that they are exposed to the best global products, practices, and technologies in the dairy sector. No wonder, Punjab sets the benchmarks for the dairy sector in India which are comparable to some of the best in the world. Punjab farmers excel across genetics, nutrition, and housing practices, the 3 core drivers of dairy farming profitability.

Cattle Breed Competition at 15th PDFA International Dairy and Agri Expo 2021 witnesses a huge crowd

In India, dairy farming is one of the most profitable businesses that provide employment to a huge population. It accounts for 55 percent of the world’s buffalo population.
