 Dr. Anil Kumar Puniya, Dean, College of Dairy Science and Technology of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary & Animal Sciences University, Ludhiana said thatPunjab state, contributing about 7% of national milk production with only 2.5% of the country’s dairy milch animals, stands at 6th place in milk production in the country.
