Amul has reached to yoga guru Baba Ramdev to purchase fodder for its dairy located in gujrat. After bagging order from amul, patanjali has now increade competition in fodder segment.

Yash Pal Arya, head of Patanjali Forage, a division of Patanjali Ayurvedsaid “the company has brought a technology from the US to produce corn silage--green fodder derived from corn crop that is known to increase milk yield in cows. The plan, which entails roping in farmers to grow corn, will also help boost the fortunes of farmers.”

RS Patel, Deputy general manager of Sabarkantha dairy said “The technology will help in increasing productivity, which will eventually improve the quality of the product. Amul will purchase 10,000 metric tonnes of corn silage from Patanjali's plant at Himmatnagar in Gujarat in an "initial order" worth Rs 6 crore. “

The first body which has signed to purchase fodder from dairy is Sabarkantha Dairy. Sabarkantha dairy is the largest milk unions under the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation which sells it’s food product to Amul.

GCMF Chairman Jetha patel said "We will be supplying the silage produced by Patanjali to our farmers. Not only will this improve the quantity and quality of milk but will also help marginal farmers who have two to three cows. Dairy owners in India generally leave cows and buffalos to graze on patchy grass cover and supplement it with dry fodder and a homemade nutrient mix.”
