spealing on the sidelines of a programme organised to release Agri Diary–2016, brought out by the Karnataka Agriculture Graduate Officers’ Association, on Friday, minister said that dairying was one of the best options to ensure assured and regular returns as there was a co-operative mechanism for milk procurement.
