Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday said that the government is making efforts to increase milk production in the state, but it is necessary that local milk producers should also cooperate.
He said Goa consumes 44 lakh litres of milk every day, out of which Goa has to purchase several lakhs of litres of milk from outside.
“For this, it is necessary to increase cow breeding and milk production.

With other varieties of cows, it is also necessary to conserve local breeds of cows that are presently looked after by gaushalas across the state. Products made from local breeds of cattle will benefit the people,” Sawant said.
He was speaking on the occasion of Balipratipada, during which he visited the Gomanchal Dairy Farm in Kudne and worshipped a cow.
Every year, the chief minister visits this place and worships the cow on the day to mark what is locally known as ‘gorvancho padvo’.
On this occasion, milk producers supplying milk to Gomanchal Dairy were felicitated by Sawant.
