Labor utilization in bovine keeping under mixed farming system in a rural area



Labor utilization in bovine keeping under mixed farming system in a rural area



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 50(12): 1029-1034



The utilization of labor in bovine keeping was studied using survey data pertaining to Bikaner area of Rajasthan [India]. A method for determining the optimum size of bovines in a household, based on the net labor available in the household for animal husbandry operations is suggested. Labor utilization was at the rate of 2.7 and 3.0 standard man-hours per standard animal (cow in milk) per day during the summer (March-June) and agricultural season (July-Feb.), respectively. Under the conditions prevailing in the rural area, for every unit standard strength of a household, one standard animal could be maintained. The system of mixed farming developed in the area was discussed.
