The veterinarian in an association visits at least 10 dairy farms per day. Guided by specific forms and database application, the veterinarian monitors vaccinations and deworming of animals and does management of general health, nutrition, reproduction, udder health and oversee replacement heifer management. The nutrition consultant oversees feeding management of cattle in the areas of our operation. 

We developed nine dairy farmers’ associations, four in Satkhira, two in Joypurhat and one each in Chittagong, Mymensingh and Sirajgonj. In Satkhira, Sirajgonj and Joypurhat, the associations collect milk and sell that to milk chilling centres installed by the BRAC Dairy and Food Project. BRAC pays a certain amount of money to CDVF for each litre of milk. The total money is sufficient to pay the salary of veterinarians, field assistants, rents for veterinary offices and the costs of vaccines and anthelmintics for all animals of the farm community. The programme generates a large number of off farm emplyment in carrying milk from the farm community to the BRAC Milk Chilling Centres. Each milk carrying man works two to three hours a day and earns at least US $ 50.0 per month. Such employment opportunity is very important in a country like Bangladesh where unemployment is a big problem. The service is sustainable if the farm community under the operation of one veterinary office produce about 2500 litres milk per day.
