Shashi Kumar, Ranjith Mukundan, Venkatesh Seshasayee and Praveen Nale – these four software engineers, former employees of Wipro in Bangalore, quit their jobs four months ago and turned entrepreneurs. They set up a milk dairy in Kodihalli village of Channarayapatna taluk of Hassan district (Karnataka, Bharat).

The milk dairy will be set up at a cost of Rs 15 crore on 24 acres, and 300 marginal farmers (those with less than 4.5 acres of land) will be selected within a 15-sqkm radius of Kodihalli village to supply milk to the dairy. “The farmers will be educated on modern cattle-rearing methods, milking machines and increasing milk production. The dairy will be set up in five months and we will be recruiting 500 villagers,” says Ranjith Mukundan. “The company will help the farmers get loans from banks to set up satellite farms and purchase cows. The milkman will sell milk directly to our company without any middlemen, the transportation of milk and regular medical check-ups of cows will be free for milkmen registered with our company,” he added.

The advantages of setting up satellite farms are many – each will be equipped with sensors, GPS, pedometers and other equipment to monitor and trace the movements of cows, how much milk a cow produces every day, and to check the animals’ body temperature and keep tabs on their health, Ranjith added.
