State offers extra support for dairy farmers in Georgia
Wednesday, June 29The Government of Georgia is increasing its support for agricultural cooperatives that produce milk.
A new programme was recently approved by the Government to encourage cooperative dairy farms by making it easier for them to do business.
Within the programme, cooperatives will be supported to purchase special milk units that collect and process milk.
The collectives will also be given various laboratory equipment and other tools that increase productivity and support the health of their livestock.
Furthermore, the program will provide technical assistance and trainings to those within the cooperatives so they can improve their skills and get greater profits from their businesses.
Cooperatives wanting to receive this state support have to register beforel July 10.
No cooperatives have yet registered for the programme and the Government was eager to offer its support, a spokesperson from the Agricultural Cooperatives Development Agency told Agenda.ge. (Agenda.ge)
