village around 5 km off the main road from Bhuj town to the “White Rann” – the vast picturesque salt desert is hardly 15 km away at the turn – there’s nothing except sand and patches of Prosopis juliflora a thorny shrub locally known as “ganda bawal” Appearances can be deceptive though Erandavali the village in Bhuj Taluka of Gujarat’s Kutch district is home to just 30 families making up 250-odd people Yet these 30 households — all from the Muslim Maldhari pastoralist community — together supplied 529341 litres of milk to the Kutch District Cooperative Milk Producers’ Union during the year ended March 31 2017 For this entire milk they received a total payment of Rs 218 crore or Rs 726 lakh per family — in an arid and saline region not receiving even 350 mm of average annual

and the Great Rann salt marsh Banni refers to a buffalo breed as well as pasture grass species both indigenous to this belt The Banni buffalo unlike common breeds such as Murrah or Jaffarabadi can tolerate water scarcity and harsh climatic conditions while thriving on the natural grasses growing in the area The Maldharis 90 per cent Muslim and the rest mainly Meghwal Dalit Hindus leave these animals to graze during the night They are trained to return to their vandh (hamlet) in the morning The grasses in turn are well adapted to withstand dry weather containing up to 5 per cent crude protein and 40 per cent fibre Related |White Revolution – Part II The annual milk yield and age at first calving of Banni buffaloes at 3000-3500 litres and 35-4 years is as good if not better than that of normal “water buffaloes” Despite that the Banni was recognised as the country’s 11th buffalo breed by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research only in 2010 “Milk yields are higher for grazing as opposed to stall-fed animals Grazing — the Banni buffaloes travel up to 10-15 km — enables the animal to properly digest what it eats and the increased basal metabolic rate leads to more milk production In New Zealand and Australia too the cows are mostly let to graze” points out R D Trivedi veterinarian and manager (procurement) at the Kutch district union “In a normal monsoon year the grasses grow to 3-4 feet and are available from July to March If the rains are poor we get them only for 3-4 months which increases our reliance on jowar (sorghum) fodder paddy straw kapasiya khod

dry and 22 lactating animals yielding about 170 litres per day In 2016-17 he sold Rs 1026 lakh worth of milk to the Kutch union Even bigger is Sadhak Halepotra who has 150 buffaloes of which 50 are now giving 300 litres daily Last year the value of his milk supplied was Rs 1621 lakh The Kutch union is at present procuring over 36000 litres of milk daily from some 2450 producers in the Banni area which has an estimated 25000 population and roughly thrice as much livestock “Before 2009 when the union came we were selling to milk traders at Bhuj which is 70 km away They would buy and pay well in summers when milk availability was low and slash rates while not purchasing our entire quantity during the winter months when production goes up The union procures our whole milk and pays based on the fat content” says Raubhai Halepotra who previously maintained only 20 buffaloes One indicator of progress is the price of livestock “Between 2009 and now the average rate for an adult Banni buffalo here has soared from Rs 30000 to Rs 15 lakh while similarly rising from Rs 5000 to Rs 25000 for Kankrej breed cows” claims Valamji R Humbal chairman of the Kutch union One farmer Hirabhai Devkaran Varotra from Dhori village fetched as much as Rs 45 lakh This price paid by a Hyderabad-based businessman was for a buffalo that gave 18 litres daily in its very first lactation “Its annual yield
