Producer Organisations and Extension: A Case of Dairy Cooperatives in India

During 18 August to 30 September 2014, AESA in association with the Indian Veterinary Research Institute and the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS) organised an e-discussion on “Role of Producer Organisations in Strengthening Extension and Advisory Services in the Dairy/Livestock Sector in India”. This discussion was followed by several rounds of face-to-face discussions with the officials and member producers of dairy producer cooperatives in four states of India. The findings and recommendations from these consultations are compiled and published in this document.
