Milk is not just food, commodity, or business. It’s a world of small farmers, women and men, herders and shepherds, people of courage and strong traditions. They say: “If you want to be a dairy farmer, you’ve got to sleep on your feet”. Today, when we are celebrating the International Milk Day, my thoughts of gratitude and admiration go to the dairy farmers of every corner of the Planet Earth. Written by Inna Punda
YES, milk is not only food but culture and institute. There is a lot of knowledge revolving around the milk. Milk is a very integral entity of the livestock keepers’ communities. Milk is a source of cash income for the world’s poor and rural women. Milk provides strong bonding between humans and animals and the environment. Milk is the most nutritious and delicious food. I love camel milk.

Reblogged this on Small Scaled Farmers and the pastoralists are the backbones of animal agriculture. They play a pivotal role not only in producing quality food item but also conserving the genetic resources as well as nature for the next generations. Contrast to the factory farming small scaled farming and pastoralism do not use (up to their level best) pesticides and chemical fertilizers etc. They do not harm the nature by the blind use of inputs like energy and water. They are the custodians of the genes and nature. and commented:
The major share of the milk still comes from small farmers.
Well and interestingly written, beautiful camel.
Thanks very much. I’m happy that you like my work.
Good afternoon Dr. Raziq, I am agricultural engineer and I am mentoring a future engineer for his final career thesis/project about first camel dairy project here in Canary Islands. Could be possible to ask you only one question which was impossible for me to find??… “How meters square need a camel for normal life inside a milking farm??” (Shadows and Free Air ones). Thanks in advance!!. Amazing and very professional camel expert you are. Bless you.
We provide an area of 60×50 m for 35 milking camels. We subdivide 60:40 for mom and kids respectively.
