Economic analysis of dairy farming in dry farming areas of Tamil Nadu


Economic analysis of dairy farming in dry farming areas of Tamil Nadu



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 69(1): 86-93



ISSN/ISBN: 0019-5146

The cost of the milk production is one of the important economic indicators influencing the farmers in taking production, management and marketing decision. The dairy farmers could enhance their income in two ways by increasing milk production and by reducing its cost of production. In Dharmapuri and Thiruvannamalai districts, which is a dry farming region in Tamil Nadu, dairy farming had been found a profitable enterprise for rural farmers. Dairy farming is an important enterprise helping in diversification of agriculture in this dry region. Private dairies are providing number of services to the dairy farmers. The dairy farmers need to adopt measures such as good and nutritious feed, health care of the animals and improved production and marketing managements in order to enhance their income. Crossbred cows play significant role in production and marketing of milk in comparison to buffalo milk. Research and development for evolving improved varieties of green fodder suitable for dry land areas may be promoted for enhancing milk production as well as income of the farmers.
