Dudhsagar Dairy May Seek US Expertise For Cattle Feed Plant

Dudhsagar Dairy

VADODARA: Asia's largest dairy, Mehsana District Milk Co-operative Producers Union Limited (MDMCPUL), popularly known as Dudhsagar Dairy, is
exploring the possibility of use of expertise from the United States for the cattle feed plant that it is setting up in north Gujarat at an estimated cost of Rs 50 crore.

The dairy's chairman Vipul Chaudhary is presently touring US where he has already visited manufacturing facilities of US' biggest agriculture co-operative Land O'Lakes and North America's largest chocolate manufacturer Hershey.

If Amul is India's largest co-operative, with annual sales worth over US $ 6 billion and annual milk collection estimated at 12 billion pound, Minnesota-based Land O'Lakes is the largest dairy co-operative body in the US, owned by 7,000 producers and 1,300 local co-operatives. Apart from being one of the largest producers of butter and cheese there, Land O'Lakes has grown through numerous acquisitions and now has a large business in farm supply in addition to dairy.

"During his visit to Land O'Lakes he studied how the company uses modern equipment in production of cattle feed that has now become a revenue generating product for the US-based co-operative," said a Chaudhary aide.

"After state government allowed us to take over assets and liabilities of ailing Mehsana Regional Oilseed Growers' Co-operative Union (MROGCU), the dairy board has cleared the way for setting up a new state-of-the-art cattle feed plant. Chaudhary is keen to get some inputs from US for our plant," he added.

It was in April that Dudhsagar Dairy, member union of Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation that markets brand Amul had launched Sagar Hyprodan, an improved cattle feed that the dairy plans to distribute even in the jurisdiction of other dairy unions of Gujarat that do not produce cattle feed. On the day of the launch itself, the dairy received orders for 10,000 bags of the new cattle feed.

Chaudhary, who is accompanied by former managing director of Surat's Sumul Dairy PR Patel, has also visited chocolate manufacturer Hershey's facility at Pennsylvania and a dairy farm at Harrisburg. One of the oldest chocolate companies in US, Hershey, that employs 13,000 persons globally, runs the largest chocolate factory in the world on two million square feet space in Pennsylvania.
