Millions wasted on milk producing project

An audit report had revealed that 133 cows imported to Sri Lanka had died, 140 are infertile and another 69 are barren. The cows were imported to produce milk.

All Island Farmers Association President Namal Karunaratne said the previous and present governments had misused a large sum on the project.

Nearly Rs. 400 million was spent on shipping cows to the island and to transport them to Ridiyagama. The transportation alone cost the government Rs. 560,000, he said.
