Amrutha Dairy Farms formally started operations in July 2010 in the Promoters owned land of 3 Acres near Bangalore. The Project was conceptualized by NABARD Consulting (NABCONS) and was funded by State Bank of Mysore.
The Farm was engaged in milk production in the past and was producing 750 lts of milk/day which was supplied to KMF and Hatsun. The farm no longer produces milk as the focus is on rearing young calves. The promoters intend to create a model dairy farm with 20 milch cows for training and display purpose in the near future.
The Farm has produced two batches of 50 best cross bred HF heifers and has sold to selected few farms in and around Bangalore. Currently a batch of 25 HF calves breeding program is going on.
