Unique Features Of The Solution/equipment - How Is It Different Than What Is Available In The Market:

ICAR-NRC on Yak, Dirag is the only organization producing CFBs for yaks. No other source is available in Indian market for this unique product for yaks

Indicate Process Followed to arrive at the problem statement for which Solution has been developed:

Yaks rearing is practising in small pockets of high altitude areas of Western and Eastern Himalayas of the country. They are facing acute shortage of feeds and fodders especially duirng harsh winter leading to loss of 25-30% of their body weights and drops milk yields towards nil. Supplermentation of the CFBs markedly reduces the weight losses and milk yields in yaks both under farm and filed conditions. Hence, CFB technology can solve the problems of reduction in growth and productivity in yaks duirng winter.

Business Model:


Tentative Time to go to Market:

It is readily available for market

Please Identify if Support is Sought for Funding:
