Management of milk process through indigenous knowledge is one of the most important parts of livestock management among herders. Herders do the hard and exhausting work of milk process through local customs and traditions with collective help in a full harmony with their surroundings. This study was conducted to study the traditional system of milk processing management. For the study 70 families in Haft Cheshmeh village, Azarshahr city were selected using qualitative methods through direct observation, participatory observation and organized interview. According to the findings, milk processes include livestock counting, gathering the herds, milking, milk measurement and preparing processed marketable materials plus what is needed for family consumption. There are various social roles in this process locally named as Yanchi, Shepherd, Suttchiller, etc. In the milking cooperative, Sutchlerbashi, which is a woman is the leader and plays a key role in advancing the cooperative's goals. Selection of Sutchlerbashi is largely determined by the amount of daily milk her herd can provide the community with. Strength and perpetuation of the organized milking processing cooperative is the task division among herders in the region. This system is simple and effective without any socio-economic and ecological problems.
Keywords: indigenous knowledge, traditional co-operative, Haft cheshmeh village, sotchiller, Cooperation.
