Around 800 students of five schools and madrashas in the city were given packets of pasteurized milk for consumption with the main thrust of inspiring them to consume milk regularly recently.
The Department of Livestock (DLS) distributed the ultra hit treatment milk supported by Livestock and Dairy Development Project to mark the World Milk Day-2022 for the last couple of days.
The main theme of the day this year was "Sustainability in the dairy Sector as well as Environmental, Nutritional and Socio-economic Empowerment."
DLS Deputy Directors Dr Anwarul Haque and Dr Mukhlesur Rahman and District Livestock Officer (DLO) Dr Zulfikar Akter Hossain distributed the milk.
They unequivocally called for boosting milk production and its consumption to eradicate the malnutrition problems for building a healthy society and the nation as a whole.
DLO Dr Zulfikar Hossain highlighted the enormous aspects of milk to the nation-building process and viewed that milk consumption is very important for both physical and mental development of the children.
So, utmost emphasis should be given on ensuring fair price of milk and its safe supply.
He defined that protein is the vital nutrition for normal growth and development of the brain and other essential nutrients of the human body while livestock is the pivotal source of nutrition.
Illustrating the importance and significance of the day besides giving an overview of milk production in Rajshahi division Prof Islam mentioned that large-scale promotion of the livestock sector is very important to remove the existing protein deficiency alongside ensuring food security.
He also said many of the people suffer from malnutrition, especially lack of animal protein like milk, meat and egg.
Dr Hossain revealed that production of huge amounts of meat through the indigenous beef-cattle improvement would supply low cost meat for people and it will ultimately protect them from malnutrition.
