Résumé
The demand for milk and milk products of Warana milk union is high against own total milk procurement. There is a positive response in milk procurement from dry land area of Sangli district. Hence, the union is looking opportunities to enhance milk procurement by expanding milk procurement chain in dry land area of Satara district ; however the union has inadequate knowledge about this area. The aim of this research is to identify the opportunities and needs for expansion of Warana milk procurement chain in dry land area of Satara district. Research is based on desk study and field study. Desk study was done on major three levels of milk procurement chain namely production, procurement and milk chilling Center. For field study, surveys are conducted at producers and VMCC level, while interviews are conducted at milk chilling Center’s level. A comparative study between field research, literature review and Warana union procurement area research shows several positive and negative aspects related to expansion of Warana union milk procurement chain in dry land area of Satara district (DLASD). The positive aspects for Warana union at producer’s level found that the producers have more land than Warana area, fodder quality is better, performance of cross breed cows are better and 62% producers are willing to join Warana union. The negative aspects for Warana union at producer’s level found that in DLASD buffalo milk production is low, in summer 75% producers have the shortage of roughage and producers are requesting for cheap concentrate, veterinary services and, finance support. The positive aspects for Warana union at milk procurement level found that, 36 % VMCC are willing to join Warana union ; the competitors have weak strategy than Warana union. The negative aspects for Warana union found that 46% VMCC are not interested to join Warana union, 9% VMCC are doing adulteration in the milk and 85% VMCC are not providing the records and fair prices to producers. The positive aspects for Warana at chilling Center level found that two chilling Centers are ready for partnership, third-party services and external environment are satisfactory. The negative aspects are that several milk chilling Centers are functioning in DLASD, resulting in to low milk procurement quantity and high cost. Research concludes that Warana milk union has more favorable environment at milk production and milk chilling Center level, while at milk procurement level there are certain challenges. Additionally, the expansion of Warana union procurement chain in DLASD will be socially, technically and economically viable. Warana union should take immediate steps for further expansion of milk procurement chain in dry land area of Satara district.
