Milk is a food ingredient which is quickly damaged or mentioned as perishable food and potentially dangerous if it is not handled properly. In community farming, commonly not paying attention to good and correct production methods thus the milk produced has low quality and quickly damaged.

Milk quality affects the selling price of milk so quality assurance is necessary by making changes in dairy farming management. Namely applying Good Dairy Farming Practice (GDFP) and Milking Hygiene which is a standardization in dairy farming business to produce milk and milk product which is safe, healthy, undamaged and halal (ASUH: Aman, Sehatm Utuh dan Halal).

The next training was carried out for groups of SMEs mothers to process fresh milk to become stick and jelly by using bromelin enzyme from high nutritious and high fiber pineapple. Since, at Sumberejo and Deyeng Village, in addition to be a farmer, people have profession as pineapple farmer. Pineapple's weevil can be used as animal feed while its flesh of fruit can be a comestible with economic value.

Dr. Masdiana as the team leader said the dedicated doctor's purpose is the creation of independence from new farmers and entrepreneurs. She expected that after training farmers can produce milk with ASUH quality in accordance with quality standards issued by Milk Processing Industry. As well as creating dairy products independently by applying appropriate technology and packaging they have learned.

"Business plan trained for farmers can be used as initial provision to create small business group of dairy products.
