Satellite coolers and farmer training programs reduce the amount of time milk is exposed to high temperatures and unhygienic conditions. Coolers can potentially reduce losses during storage by 6%, while extension programs that introduce proper handling practices can reduce losses by 4.5%. Although these measures require significant investment, they pay for themselves so expenses can be shared among groups of farmers at the cooperative level.
