Cost of feeding treated straw vis a vis green fodder for milk production under different farming systems



Cost of feeding treated straw vis a vis green fodder for milk production under different farming systems



Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 8(2): 103-110



A least cost ration analysis revealed that use of paddy straw in the ration reduced the feed cost in both village and city situations compared with the use of wheat straw. The overall feed cost for maintenance plus milk production and income over feed cost was higher in urban than in rural situations. The comparison between landless households versus farmers indicated that use of paddy straw in the diet did not influence the income over feed cost. However, the maintenance cost of animals owned by farmers was considerably lower than those of landless households (Rs. 0.91 vis a vis Rs. 3.38), especially on wheat straw based diets due to higher cost of wheat straw paid by landless households. It further resulted in higher income (33%) by the farmers compared with landless households. Untreated wheat as well as paddy straw along with other supplements form a maintenance ration and could even support low productions. Treated (4% urea-ammonia) straw can replace better quality fodder upto 10 l of milk production. However, beyond this only green fodder with concentrates are suitable.
