Why in news:

  • Household Consumption Expenditure Survey (HCES) for 2022-23 shows milk emerging as India’s top food spend item, both in rural and urban areas.
  • The excess demand for milk has created the concern of inflation in milk price and availability of fodder.

      The availability of the milk can be increased by:

  • Genetic improvement and new breeding technologies.
  • Farmers cultivating high-yielding protein-rich green fodder grasses and reducing reliance on expensive compound cattle feed and oil-meal concentrates.
