INDUSTRY PROFILEDairy is a place where handling of milk and milk products is done and technology refers to the application of scientific knowledge for practical purpose. Dairy technology has been defined as that branch of dairy science, which deals with the processing of milk and manufacture of milk products on an industrial scale. In India, dairying has been practiced as a rural cottage industry since the remote past. Semi-commercial dairying started with the establishment of military dairy farms and co-operative milk unions throughout the country towards the end of the nineteenth century. During the earlier years, each household in those countries maintained its family cow or secured milk from its neighbor who supplied those living closed by. As the urban population increased, fewer households could keep cow for private use. The high cost of milk production, problems of sanitation etc, restricted the practice and gradually the family cow in the city was eliminated and city cattle were all sent back to the rural areas. Gradually farmers within easy driving distance began delivering milk over regular routes in the cities. This was the beginning of fluid milk-sheds which surround the large cities of today. Prior to the 1850s most milk was necessarily produced within a short distance of the place of consumption because of lack of suitable means of transportation and refrigeration.

The Indian dairy industry has made rapid progress since Independence. A large number of modern milk plants and products factories have since been established. These organizes dairies have been successfully engaged in the routine commercial production of pasteurized bottle milk and various Western and Indian dairy products. With modern knowledge of the protection of milk during transportation, it became possible to locate dairies where land was less expensive and crops could be grown more economically. In India, the market milk technology may be considered to have commenced in 1950, with the functioning of the Central Dairy of Aarey Milk Colony and milk product technology in 1956 with the establishment of AMUL Dairy, Anand. The industry is still in its infancy and barely 10% of our total milk production The most valuable resources that a dairy business can have are reliable and productive workers. Todays tight labor market means that workers have many employment choices. Dairy producers need to do all they can to keep their best employees and attract other excellent workers to their team.
