Clean Milk Production is the critical factor for the country like India to harvest the fruit of exporting milk to other countries.

Clean Milk is Healthy milk and makes wealthy farmers.

Basic fact in dairy production especially in South East Asia the dominant farmers are either small or land less farmers, and their animal herd is mostly in the range of 4-5 heads.

The material of the article is very essential for the prosperity of dairy farmers, for the health of animals keeping in view mastitis and for the health of consumers.
