VIDARBHA Economic Development Council (VED) will be organising webinar on ‘Opportunities in Dairy and Processing Industry’ on September 12, from 4 pm. The eminent panelists of the webinar would be Dr Ashish Paturkar, VC, Maharashtra Animal and Fishery Sciences University (MAFSU), Nagpur, Sudhir Dive, Director, Dive Bandhu Cow Products and Executive Council Member, MAFSU, Dr Mohan Shrigiriwar, Dairy Farm Consultant and President, Vasant Foundation, Ranjitkumar Rathod, Deputy General Manager, Mother Dairy Unit Nagpur and Pradeep Bhoyar, Consultant, Animal Husbandry, Dairy and Milk Products. VED has conducted three dairy workshops in the past attended by large number of farmers from almost all the districts of Vidarbha.
The idea was to give the hapless farmers an alternative to farming and also to be selfsufficient in dairy needs which are mostly met by dairy products from outside the State. Thereafter, dairy workshops were held for over 6 months at theVED office, conducted by Dr Mohan Shrigiriwar, which received tremendous response.
All are invited to attend the workshop and take advantage of the information disseminated through the webinar. Interested may log in the webinar through Zoom App meeting ID 937 0512 6806 and password 414014, informs Pankaj Mahajan, Vice-President of VED Council and Chairman, Agri and Allied Services Forum.
