Transforming Livelihoods

Muhammad Azam Bashir lives in Basti Sheen Mar Moza Qadir wah Tehsil, District Vehari, with his wife and a son. He heard about USAID-DRDF Dairy Project’s trainings through Dairy Project’s Team, followed by community meeting and application process of farm up graduation.

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and Dairy and Rural Development Foundation (DRDF), through their Dairy Project, are providing trainings to dairy farmers to foster sustainable increase in dairy and livestock productivity through adoption of best dairy farming practices.

Farmers are trained in improved feeding and animal nutrition, basic level animal health management, shed management and the importance of improved breeds through artificial insemination. These trainings for dairy farmers in best practices will increase milk yields of animals and subsequently boost farmers’ incomes.

With Azam’s involvement in the USAID-DRDF Dairy Project trainings, his farming techniques have improved. He says “At one-day farmer trainings, I realized the importance of modern dairy farm practices and techniques; such as, vaccination, balanced diet, shelter and free access to clean water. I implemented these techniques and later attended one-month farm manager course to learn more.”

According to Azam, “It has helped me increase my animals’ milk yield from 55 to 75 liters on an average and thus has boosted my three months income from PKR 60,000 to PKR. 80,000. I spend the profit earned on the education of my family members and other household expenses.”
