Milking the Market for Donkey Milk in India
Donkey-rearers from the Indian village of Tiruchy had fallen on tough times, and had to leave the village due to poor business. This led them to the village of Anamalai, whose residents believe that donkey milk possesses special nutritional and medicinal value. Needless to say, business is booming.
“Villagers are interested in buying the milk and sales has increased when compared to other areas where we sold earlier,” said V Narasimman, the leader of the group.
“On Sunday, we sold milk to around 60 villagers in the Anamalai area as their children were down with cold,” he added.
