Milk production hit in Tamil Nadu by foot-and-mouth disease

The current outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) among cattle has significantly hit milk production in Tamil Nadu, prompting dairy farmers to seek intervention, including vaccination on a war-footing. The daily procurement has come down by about four lakh litres a day, according to Tamil Nadu Milk Producers’ Welfare Association (TNMPWA) President K A Sengottuvel.

Concerned over the impact of the viral disease, a delegation of the Association is planning to meet ministers concerned and top officials later this week.PTI
