In spite of the fact that Pakistan is one the major milk producing countries in the world, its dairy industry still struggles to maintain the supply to meet the ever increasing demand for dairy products. Part of challenge to boost the efficiency of production in Pakistan is to utilize the wonderful resources available to dairy framers more effectively. The Australian Government has provided funding, through the ASLP, for project to implement within Pakistan aimed at increasing the dairy production of small holder dairy farms by improving current extension services. The target area of the project is the Okara and Bhakkar.
The two main themes of the project are:
- To provide support for a model system of small holder dairy production
- To capture and enhance the knowledge relevant to smallholder dairy
