Model dairy farm project runs into rough weather

Thiruvananthapuram: The Department of Dairy Development has been forced to shelve a project to establish a model dairy farm at Valiathura here following resistance from the local people.

Families in the neighbourhood of the proposed site fear that effluents from the farm will aggravate the environmental pollution caused by the old sewage farm. The department, however, maintains that the concerns are unfounded.

Officials said the project was scientifically-designed with effluent treatment facilities and a green belt to avoid pollution.
