A total of 100 farmers of Bangladesh Dairy Farmers' Association (BDF) and breeding specialist professors from Bangladesh Agricultural University on Friday signed the MoU in the Fakhruddin Convention Hall at Dhanmondi of the capital for a jointly research work to increase meat, milk and cattle productions.
They also agreed for a research work to develop improved species of cattle to increase meat, milk and cattle.
