I am pleased to welcome all representatives of co-operative milk
societies associated with the Union present in the 61st Annual
General Meeting of the Union, and, present before you the Annual
Accounts of the year 2011-12, and Audited Report duly approved by
the Board of Directors and certified by Auditor.
During the year a sad demise of Shri Sudambhai Raghunathbhai
Patel, Sumul has lost its strong leader & milk producers have lost
their well wisher. We tribute him with broken heart.
During the year rates of petroleum products were remain too high & as a result expenditure
became high for all animal husbandry practices. In this condition milk producer should not face
financial crisis & to make them strengthened Sumul has paid rupees Seventy five (` 75/-) more as
compare to the previous year.
Even though during the whole year due to high rise in the rates of feeds & fodder & raw material
of feed concentrates & due to this milk production cost also gone up & it became a challenging
business for our milk producers, We have supplied Sumul Dan by "Effective Cattle Feed
Management" without any rise in the cost of cattle feed. In addition we have established a new
Cattle feed raw material godown & a Area specific mineral mixture plant with the cost of 2 Crore.
Milk producers of Surat & Tapi districts will get the benefit of the same from to year.
During the year we could improve the quality of milk, not only that but milk we have reduced the
sour milk incidence remarkable by installing 74 BCUs & 394 AMCS machines at society level for
which Gujarat Government has granted rupees 4 crores & by this we could be able to provide
direct benefit to our milk producer.
In addition milk producers were being provided with low interest loan & projects like FIP, NECO,
PEP & AI services being started to reduce the milk production cost & enhance the milk
In fourth coming years a plan "Community Based Biogas" is being thought to be implemented
on big scale in the milk societies of Surat districts & Tapi districts with the help of Government of
Gujarat by which milk producer will get the income even from the dung like products.
Even these all, it is a plan to aid in reduce milk production cost, Lucerne, Maize, & Bajara like fodders are to be cultivated in the unused Government Gouchar land & provide it to the milk
producer at reasonable rate with the cooperation of Government of Gujarat & milk societies.
We became able to cop up the demand of milk in Surat city by using new & advanced
machineries with latest technology during the year. During the year we have been successful to
process maximum 13.50 Lac liquid milk per day. All milk distributing vehicles will be made
insulated that the high quality milk could be provided whole year to the Surat city.
To imply "New Food Safety Law" to be acted from to year, a training programme at society level &
at union level are being arranged with other preparation also.
Thus, we have been successful to pay maximum rate to our milk producer even in several
unfavourable conditions & we have also been successful to maintain the income of milk to union
during the year.
