The strike called by Tamil Nadu Milk Producers Welfare Association here demanding increased procuring price entered its seventh day today, with supply-less milk cooperatives wearing a deserted look.

As against an average supply of 1.5 lakh litres of milk a day, the Primary Milk Producers Cooperative Society registered no supply from the milk producers who are demanding a hike of Rs 8/litre for buffalo's milk and Rs 5/litre for cow's milk.

The Erode District Milk producers Cooperative Union, which normally sends more than 60,000 litres of milk daily to Chennai, has not been able to do the same for the past one week, due to the strike.

The supply of AAVIN milk sachets in the districts is fast running out and authorities said yesterday that they would last only for one or two days more.
