Aavin on Thursday announced an increase in milk procurement prices by ₹3 a litre and as a result over 4.20 lakh farmers attached to 9,345 primary cooperative societies will benefit.
A litre of cow milk will be procured at a price of ₹35 and buffalo milk at ₹44. The last time the milk procurement prices were increased was in August 2019, said an official press release.
M.G. Rajendran, who represents a major dairy farmers’ association, said that this would bring relief to lakhs of farmers who depend on cattle rearing.
