Folkways and mores play a major role in traditional dairy farming. Hence an attempt was made to document the prevailing folkways and mores in traditional dairy farming in the areas where cattle population is high. Tirunelveli, Namakkal, Vellore and Thiruppur districts were selected for the study based on the highest livestock population. A sample of 240 farmers was interviewed through structured interview schedule to document the folkways and mores. Cow / buffalo meat should not be consumed, Cows and calves were given as gift in marriages of tribal communities, Cow death was a bad sign for the family and to see cow with calf on the way is good for the journey were the top four identified folkways and mores in traditional dairy farming.
