Milk rates going to change

Hi All?
New Delhi: Milk prices in the national capital and adjoining areas will rise by up to Rs 2 per litre from Monday with two leading suppliers hiking rates, but largest seller Mother Dairy is not increasing rates just yet.

Amul and Quality Dairy will increase milk prices from Monday. Mother Dairy and Paras are the other two major milk suppliers in the national capital and its adjoining areas which consume over 115 lakh litres milk a day.

“Amul Taaza (toned) milk will cost Rs 30 per litre from tomorrow in Delhi and NCR compared to Rs 29 per litre, while slim and trim shall cost Rs 26 per litre in place of Rs 25. Amul Gold (full cream) will be Rs 40 per litre against Rs 38 per litre,” RS Sodhi, Managing Director, Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which sells products under Amul brand name, told.

Quality Dairy would also raise the price by Rs 2 for full-cream milk and Re 1 for tonned and double-tonned, its Vice President (Marketing), Rajesh Verma said. The company sells 1.25 lakhs litre everyday in Delhi and NCR.

Mother Dairy, the largest milk supplier in the region, however, said it would not immediately increase the price. Amul, the second largest milk supplier in Delhi and NCR with a daily sales of nearly 20 lakh litres of milk per day, said expenditure on milk production has gone up for farmers and GCMMF has also hiked the procurement price.

Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation has already increased milk prices in Gujarat and Mumbai in April.
“In the last three years, remuneration paid to farmers supplying milk to GCMMF has gone up by 50 per cent,” Sodhi said.
In the last financial year, GCMMF, which supplies milk to major cities and important states, had announced a hike of around 14-15 per cent.

“We play a delicate balance between consumer price and the procurement price. We are closely watching the procurement prices. Depending upon how it moves in summer, we will review our consumer prices,” Mother Dairy Managing Director S Nagarajan said.

Asked would there be any immediate price hike, he said, “Not immediately. This is not going to happen this week or next week, but we are watching the farmers price”.

Paras could not be immediately contacted. Mother Dairy supplies 29-30 lakh litres of milk per day in Delhi and the NCR, including loose milk through vending machines.

Milk production in the country now is at around 125 million litres. Demand is growing at faster pace of 6 per cent than production.

Hi?
The latest news here in Bangalore is BAMUL is considering to reduce rate about Rs.1 to 1.5 per liter milk.
BAMUL is collecting highest record of milk collection of more than 10 lakh liters of milk in a day in Karnataka.

Reason is BAMUL incurring losse eto make milk powder and cheese instead of selling milk directly.
More than 10 private private dairies are supplying milk & other milk products to Bangalore with comparative rates, hence BAMUL is forced to convert liquid milk in to powder and other products.

Hi?
It is true, then how Farmers should survive? Any farmer got solution for this rate problem?
No. Unless and untill a Farmer do marketing on his own efforts, he cannot cope up such problems.
After production, marketing is also an responsibility for a Farmer to get good returns for their product.

Any such Farmers please? Please come up with your initiative and success of best marketing methods of selling agri produce including milk.

I am not a dairy farmer but have heard of farmers who are packing milk in sachets in a small way right at the farm. These are delivered to shops, homes or sold at the farm.

ಕೇರಳದತ್ತ ನಂದಿನಿ ಹಾಲು? October 16, 2012  

ಮಂಗಳೂರು: ಕೇರಳದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಿಲ್ಮಾ ಹಾಲಿನ ಬೆಲೆ ಲೀಟರ್‌ಗೆ 5 ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಏರಿಕೆಯಾಗಿರುವಂತೆಯೇ ಅದರ ನೇರ ಪರಿಣಾಮ ಮಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಲೀಟರ್‌ಗೆ 25 ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಬೆಲೆಯ ಟೋನ್ಡ್ ಹಾಲಿನ ಕೊರತೆ ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಂಡುಬಂದಿದೆ.

ಲೀಟರ್‌ಗೆ 25 ರೂಪಾಯಿಯ ಟೋನ್ಡ್ ಹಾಲು ದೊಡ್ಡ ಪ್ರಮಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾರಾಟವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. 28 ರೂಪಾಯಿಯ ಹಸಿರು ಪ್ಯಾಕೆಟ್‌ನ ದನದ ಹಾಲು ಹಾಗೂ 30 ರೂಪಾಯಿಯ ಶುಭಂ ಹಾಲು ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಕಡಿಮೆ ಪ್ರಮಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾರಾಟವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಕೇರಳದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಿಲ್ಮಾ ಹಾಲಿನ ದರ ಹೆಚ್ಚುತ್ತಿದ್ದಂತೆಯೇ ಏಕಾಏಕಿಯಾಗಿ ಮಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ದರದ ಟೋನ್ಡ್‌ಹಾಲಿನ ಪೂರೈಕೆ ಇಳಿಮುಖವಾಗಿರುವುದು ಕಂಡುಬಂದಿದೆ.

ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ನಮ್ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ನಿತ್ಯ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ 70 ಕ್ರೇಟ್ ಟೋನ್ಡ್ ಹಾಲು ಬರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. 8 ಕ್ರೇಟ್‌ನಷ್ಟು ಕೌ ಮಿಲ್ಕ್ ಬರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಆದರೆ ಇಂದು ಟೋನ್ಡ್ ಹಾಲಿನ ಕ್ರೇಟ್‌ಗಳು 10ರಷ್ಟು ಕಡಿಮೆಯಾಗಿವೆ, ಬದಲಿಗೆ 5 ಹೆಚ್ಚುವರಿ ಕೌ ಮಿಲ್ಕ್‌ನ ಕ್ರೇಟ್‌ಗಳನ್ನು ಕಳುಹಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ನನ್ನಂತೆ ಹಲವು ಹಾಲು ವಿತರಕರು ಇಂತಹ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆ ಎದುರಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಎಂದು ಡೊಂಗರಕೇರಿಯ ಹಾಲು ವಿತರಕರೊಬ್ಬರು ಪ್ರಜಾವಾಣಿಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸಿದರು.

ಕೇರಳದ ಹಾಲಿನ ಡೇರಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ರಾಹಕರಿಗೆ ಮಾರಾಟ ಮಾಡುವ ಹಾಲಿನ ದರ ಸೋಮವಾರ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆಯಿಂದ 30 ರೂಪಾಯಿಯಿಂದ 35 ರೂಪಾಯಿಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚಳವಾಗಿದೆ. ಹೆಚ್ಚಿಸಲಾದ ದರದಲ್ಲಿ ಲೀಟರ್‌ಗೆ 4.60 ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಹಾಲು ಉತ್ಪಾದಕರಿಗೆ ಸಿಗುತ್ತದೆ, ತಲಾ 20 ಪೈಸೆ ಸಹಕಾರ ಸಂಘಕ್ಕೆ ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ಯಾಕೆಟ್ ವಿತರಕರಿಗೆ ಸಿಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಕೇರಳದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚಳವಾದ ದರಕ್ಕೆ ಪರ್ಯಾಯವಾಗಿ ನಂದಿನಿ ಹಾಲನ್ನು ಪೂರೈಸಿ ಒಂದಿಷ್ಟು ಲಾಭ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವ ತಂತ್ರವನ್ನು ಕೆಲವು ಡೀಲರ್‌ಗಳು ಮಾಡಿದ್ದೇ ಹಾಲಿನ ಕೊರತೆಗೆ ಕಾರಣ ಎಂಬ ಮಾತು ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೇಳಿಬಂದಿದೆ.

ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ದ.ಕ. ಜಿಲ್ಲಾ ಹಾಲು ಒಕ್ಕೂಟದ ಅಧ್ಯಕ್ಷ ರವಿರಾಜ ಹೆಗ್ಡೆ ಅವರನ್ನು ಸಂಪರ್ಕಿಸಿದಾಗ, ಡೀಲರ್‌ಗಳಿಗೆ ಎಷ್ಟು ಬೇಕೋ ಅಷ್ಟು ಟೋನ್ಡ್ ಹಾಲು ಪೂರೈಸಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಟೋನ್ಡ್ ಹಾಲಿನ ಕ್ರೇಟ್‌ಗಳನ್ನು ಕಡಿಮೆ ಇಳಿಸಿದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತಮಗೆ ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಇಲ್ಲ, ಕೆಲವೊಂದು ಡೀಲರ್‌ಗಳು ಕೇರಳದತ್ತ ಹಾಲು ಸಾಗಿಸಿರುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಯೂ ಇಲ್ಲದಿಲ್ಲ, ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪರಿಶೀಲನೆ ನಡೆಸಲಾಗುವುದು ಎಂದರು.

ಕರಾವಳಿಗೂ ಕೆಎಂಎಫ್ ಬಿಸಿ!
ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಹಾಲು ಮಹಾಮಂಡಲದ (ಕೆಎಂಎಫ್) ಆಂತರಿಕ ಬಿಕ್ಕಟ್ಟಿಗೂ, ದ.ಕ.ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಗೂ ಯಾವುದೇ ಸಂಬಂಧ ಇಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದರೂ, ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥಾಪಕ ನಿರ್ದೇಶಕರ (ಎಂಡಿ) ನೇಮಕಾತಿಗೆ ಸಂಬಂಧಿಸಿದಂತೆ ಹಗ್ಗಜಗ್ಗಾಟ ನಡೆಯುತ್ತಿರುವ ಲಕ್ಷಣ ಕಾಣಿಸಿದೆ.

ಇದುವರೆಗೆ ಎಂ.ಡಿ. ಆಗಿದ್ದ ರವಿಕುಮಾರ್ ಕಾಕಡೆ ಅವರನ್ನು ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗಷ್ಟೇ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿಗೆ ವರ್ಗಾಯಿಸಲಾಗಿತ್ತು. ಸದ್ಯ ಸತ್ಯನಾರಾಯಣ ಅವರು ಉಸ್ತುವಾರಿ ಎಂ.ಡಿ.ಆಗಿ ಸೇವೆ ಸಲ್ಲಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಕಾಕಡೆ ಅವರನ್ನು ಮತ್ತೆ ಇಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ಎಂ.ಡಿ.ಆಗಿ ನಿಯೋಜಿಸುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆ ಇದೆ ಎಂದು ಹೇಳಲಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ.

CY 2011 fluid milk production is raised at 123 million tonnes, 1.23 per cent higher than previous estimates reflecting strong monsoon and good fodder availability.
 
India’s milk production is estimated to rise by 5 per cent to 129 million tonnes in the current calendar year on account of strong prices and growing demand, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) said.

The country had produced 123 million tonnes of milk in 2011, it said. “Calender Year (CY) 2012 milk production is estimated at 129 million tonnes, 4.87 per cent up over CY 2011.

CY 2011 fluid milk production is raised at 123 million tonnes, 1.23 per cent higher than previous estimates reflecting strong monsoon and good fodder availability,” USDA said in its latest report.

Non-fat Dairy Milk (NFDM) stocks grew significantly in 2012 as output rose in response to remunerative prices and the government’s prohibition on milk powder exports, it added.

The government had imposed a ban on export of skimmed milk powder (SMP) in February last year due to rising prices of milk but had removed the ban in June 2012.

India produces approximately 17 per cent of the world’s total dairy production and consumes virtually all of this.
“The country follows a ‘low-input/low-output’ dairy output model characterised by production costs and yields amongst the lowest in the world”, USDA said.

The CY 2012 production estimate for NFDM remains unchanged at 4,50,000 tonnes.
The US agency also revised the butter production estimate for 2012. Butter production has been revised up 2,000 tonnes to 4.53 million tonnes.

For 2011, the butter production has been revised upwards by 10,000 tonnes to 4.33 million tonnes due to good milk production and a favourable 2011 monsoon, it added.

According to government data, India, the world’s largest producer of milk, had produced about 127 million tonnes of milk in the 2011-12 fiscal.
