Milk procurement shoots up in Perambalur district

By Our Staff Reporter

PERAMBALUR, JUNE 4. The daily procurement from primary milk cooperative societies in the district has shot up to 1.40 lakh litres this week thanks to several steps taken by the district administration, the Collector, D. Vivekanandan, said.

The `Aavin' had fixed a daily target of 1.35 lakh litres for the district last December, he said in a press release issued here on Wednesday.

The target was reached by stabilising the process of procurement from the primary cooperative societies in the district in a phased manner during the last five months through steps like forming new primary cooperative milk societies like the all-women milk societies under the `Supported Training Employment Programme' (STEP).

In all, seven societies had been formed raising the number from 184 in January to 191 in March.

Steps were being taken to revive those societies, which had become defunct due to factors like poor management.

The daily procurement in the district stood at 1.21 lakh litres in January and February, stepped up to 1.22 lakh litres in March and rose to 1.24 lakh litres in April.

The Tiruchi District Cooperative Milk Producers' Union, whose jurisdiction extends to Perambalur district, was prepared to get milk from all the cooperative societies in the district, the Collector said. He appealed to milk producers here to take maximum advantage of the same.

Of 1.40 lakh litres, 90,000 litres was sent to `Aavin', Chennai, and 50,000 litres to Tiruchi. This procurement was in addition to the 20,000 litres diverted for local consumption here.
