Punjab Markfed signed an agreement on Tuesday with Himachal's Himfed for supplying its cattle feed to the hill state.
In this connection, Dr Karmjeet Singh Sra, managing director of Markfed, and KC Chaman, managing director, Himfed, signed an agreement on Tuesday here.
After this agreement, the cattle feed manufactured by the Markfed will be made available to farmers of Himachal through the outlets of cooperative societies. The MDs of Markfed and Himfed also deliberated on the marketing of other edible products of Markfed in Himachal.
