NDDB launched mobile application Pashu Poshan to boost dairy farmers' income

The National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) on 7 July 2015 launched a mobile application named Pashu Poshan that will boost dairy farmers' income by raising milk yield and cutting feed cost. The app will recommend a balanced diet for cows and buffaloes.

The mobile application was launched by the Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh.

The application will be available on both web and android platforms. It can be accessed by registering on the INAPH portal http://inaph.Nddb.Coop.

To use this application, the farmer needs to provide complete animal profile including breed, age, milk production, fat content in milk apart from food items being currently fed to the animal along with the cost in order to formulate the balanced ration formula.
