Stemming Operation Flood-Towards an Alternative Dairy Policy for India

Stemming Operation Flood Towards an Alternative Dairy Policy for India Shanti George The paper assesses ten central decisions taken under the Operation Flood programme, viz, to use donated dairy foods to generate funds for launching a flood' of milk in India, to introduce crossbred cows widely, to extend the cultivation of green fodder, to emphasise compounded cattle feed, not to prevent the export of concentrate residues from India, to supply cities entirely with milk from rural sources, to replicate the Anand pattern of dairy co-operative, to set up a national milk grid, and not to undertake special feeding programmes. These policy decisions are criticised, and an alternative dairy policy is sketched for India.
