Labor utilization pattern for dairying in different seasons

Labor utilization pattern for dairying in different seasons

Asian Journal of Dairy Research 2(4): 205-208

The study on labor utilization pattern covered 1807 sample households in Haryana state [India] during 1972-1974. Labor input by the family labor accounted for 90%. On an average, the total family labor devoted about 6 h and 30 min per day to dairying which was about 3 h by a male, 2 h and 15 min by a female and 1 h and 15 min by a child laborer. A paid laborer devoted about 45 min to dairying per day. The labor input was highest in rainy season compared with other 2 seasons. About 75% of labor input was used for feeds and feeding, grazing, bringing the fodder and chaffing of fodder. Total family labor devoted about 156 man-minutes per milking animal per day while the paid labor devoted only 17 min. About 86 man-minutes were devoted to produce 1 kg of milk which comprised 77 min by family and 9 min by paid labor. The study revealed that women laborers made a large contribution towards the dairy enterprise which paralleled that of men.
