Subsidy up to Rs 2 crore for setting up cattle breed multiplication farm

The scheme is being implemented across India through the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB)

The Indian government’s department of animal husbandry and dairying (DAHD), under its Rashtriya Gokul Mission (RGM), has approved a project to facilitate establishment of breed multiplication farms through entrepreneurship model for making available high genetic merit heifers of cattle and buffalo breeds to farmers. The Breed Multiplication Farm Entrepreneurship Scheme is being implemented through the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB).

At present entrepreneurs/farmers, interested in taking up dairying, are facing difficulties in sourcing disease-free high yielding heifers or cows. Farmers are dependent on either middlemen or other farmers maintaining dairy animals for sourcing their requirement of dairy animals.

A subsidy up to 50% of the capital (limited to Rs 2 crore) is available to the interested entrepreneurs for construction of cattle sheds, equipment and procurement of elite bull mothers etc. The entrepreneurs have to establish a breed multiplication farm (BMF) and produce elite heifers using sexed semen or IVF technology.
