Exploiting dairy production potential in Sri Lanka

Project Highlights

Small-scale dairying plays a crucial role in the livelihoods and food security of many smallholders and rural communities in Sri Lanka. Dairy products are essential to providing low-cost and high quality protein, minerals and vitamins, and great potential exists for the development of the dairy industry. However, domestic production falls short of its potential and much of the demand for dairy products is met by importing milk powder. Dairy production costs are relatively low for farmers, but development of the industry is hindered by a shortage of steady supplies of feed. Therefore, this project aimed to increase milk production by improving feeding and management techniques and increasing the feed base.
