What is Holding Back Milk Production Potential in Pakistan?
Publication Year : 2021
Author: Abdus Sattar

The estimated potential production is much higher—at the research station level, the estimated potential is 82 million tonnes, while the maximum breed potential is 110 million tonnes. Several factors, including; low return for dairy farmers, credit constraints, the low genetic potential of milking animals, the absence of a formal milk marketing system, lack of healthcare for milking animals, insufficient/ improper feeding, and lack of research, constrains opportunities in the dairy sector.
