Dairy Farming in Tamil Nadu

  • Efficient management of a dairy farm is the key to success

  • Cattle feeding cost a total of 70% of the milk production

  • Cattle are fed with fodder, grains, brans, green fodder, straw, oil cakes and other such cattle feed.

  • The feed for a normal adult animal is 15-20 Kg of green fodder and 6 Kg of dry fodder per day.

  • During the last trimester of pregnancy, the animals must not be taken far away for grazing and uneven paths for grazing must be avoided

  • Poor animal health is one of the principal constraints to increasing small-scale dairy productivity, as it results in high morbidity and low production.
