His contribution is not as expected. In such a situation, with the aim of encouraging the cattle farmers of the state to rear high productivity and quality indigenous breed of cows (Gir, Sahiwal, Haryana, Gangatiri and Tharparkar), their breed improvement and their better care, Nand Baba Milk Mission is being launched. Under the Mukhyamantri Progressive Pashupalak Protsahan Yojana was started. Under this, arrangements have been made to give cash awards and citations to cattle herders. Under the scheme, Yogi government is giving incentive amount of ten to fifteen thousand rupees. This amount is divided into two parts. In this, if Sahiwal, Gir and Tharpark cows give eight to twelve kg milk per day, Rs 10,000 will be given as incentive and if more than twelve kg milk is given per day, Rs 15,000 will be given as incentive. Similarly, if a Haryana cow gives six to ten kilos of milk per day, ten thousand rupees will be given and if it gives more than ten kilos of milk, fifteen thousand rupees will be given. Apart from this, Rs 10,000 will be given if Gangathiri cow gives 6 to 8 kg of milk per day and fifteen thousand rupees will be given if it gives more than 8 kg of milk.
