About the Practice
Problem Statement:



Safe milking of cow/buffaloes is a requirement across rural India. In rural India availability of skilled labor for milking is also a problem now days. Adding to this is the fact that milking by hand is not considered healthy or hygienic anymore. Power operated milking machines are available in the market which are very expensive, suitable and affordable only for large cattle farms. Innovator has made a manually operated as well as a power-driven milking machine that helps small farmers to milk animal hygienically and reduce the drudgery in the process. It is a very simple machine and can be easily operated by women as well.
