In December 2022, fodder inflation reaches 28.66%, with no reprieve from rising milk prices.

As fodder prices continue to rise, there is no respite in sight for rising milk prices. Based on the all-India Wholesale Price Index (WPI), the annual rate of fodder inflation increased to 28.66 percent in December 2022.

According to data issued by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry on Monday, the fodder index value climbed by 28.66% from 183.9 in December 2021 to 236.6 in December 2022.

The feed inflation rate in December 2022 was more than 4.25 percent in December 2021. In November of previous year, it was at 27.66 percent.

The rise in feed costs is important because it raises the cost of making milk, which affects the budgets of people who buy milk. During the year 2022, popular milk brands like as Amul and Mother Dairy increased their prices multiple times. In addition, increased fodder prices harm cattle-rearing-dependent on them.

In contrast to the decline in total WPI inflation, which fell to 4.95 percent in December 2022 from 5.85 percent in November, feed prices increased. It reached 14.27% in December 2021.
