Abstract:

In pursuit of increasing milk production among other factors, adequate and timely supply of quality inputs, disease surveillance and preventive service delivery is inevitable. Veterinary services for milk producers in general and Supply of Inputs and Preventive services in particular have traditionally been provided by the public sector at institution, but milk marketing agencies viz dairy development department and private agency have extended their provision at village level but limited their availability of services at centre only. This paper considers the extent of Input supply and preventive service delivery and milk producers’ perception about quality, timeliness and service charge paid to gain an insight into the debatable issue of effective and efficient service delivery as claimed by the service providers. These results underline the need for a re-examination of the milk procurement agencies strategy to ensure supply of inputs and preventive services to the rural milk producers as and when they need. It is time to ensure in-time availability of inputs and preventive services, through either 'user pays' fees or levies. In the long term, as the dairy sector develops and service delivery becomes inevitable, dairy development department will need to dedicate itself towards playing valuable role in providing quality and timely inputs, animal disease surveillance and control.
