Abstract:

The costs of feeding dairy animals can make up to 50-70 % of the total cost of producing milk. Therefore, it is important to find ways of minimizing feed costs to improve the economic efficiency of any dairy enterprise. Producing economical fodder to feed dairy animals is of great importance to the farming system. Further in India the total feed requirement for the country’s livestock population is also increasing rapidly in order to sustain milk production. In the country majority of the farmers are small and marginal who use most of their land for agricultural crop cultivation. But a large number of farmers among them are dairy farmers whose income relies on the milk production of the dairy animals. Therefore, it is important to look at the farm as a whole system and determine whether it is worthwhile to grow more fodder to ensure feed is available for the dairy herd. Imbalanced use of chemicals and second generation problems of green revolution in agriculture has weakened the ecological base in addition to degradation of soil, water resources, food quality, crop productivity and farm profitability especially in cereal based intensive cropping systems in the country especially in North India. Human health hazards and environmental degradation associated with this input intensive cropping system has renewed the interest in the organic cultivation of crops. Global warming led climate changes are further aggravating the agro-ecological imbalance. Hence the current scenario firmly emphasizes the need to adopt eco-friendly agricultural practices for sustainable food production.
