Collector tells veterinary doctors to visit cooperative societies and provide medicines to cattle

ERODE: The Tamil Nadu Farmers Association has demanded that milk procurement price be increased by Rs. 3 per litre.

At the Agriculturists Grievances Day meeting held here on Friday, Association secretary Munuswamy said that though prices of all agricultural inputs had gone up considerably, milk procurement price was not yet revised.

Mr. Munuswamy said that veterinary doctors of the Erode District Milk Producers Cooperative Union were not visiting the societies. Necessary medicines for milch animals were not available at the Union.

Tour programme

Collector D. Karthikeyan, who presided over the meeting, directed Aavin authorities to formulate a chart on the visit of veterinary doctors and asked them send him their tour programme. `

The general secretary of Tamil Nadu Tribal People Association V.P. Gunasekaran said in Kundry, Makkampalayam and Guthiyalathur forest areas, there was about 80,000 acres of dry land. Here the tribals were collecting forest produce and selling it in the plains. When they brought the produce to the plains, officials of the Forest Department were insisting that the tribals get licence for transportation of the produce.

Athikadavu Farmers Association president Samiappan wanted the district administration to recommend starting of an agricultural college at Bhavanisagar.

Thadapalli Farmer's Association president Eswaran complained that a new type of pest had affected the sugarcane crop.
