Abstract:

A study was conducted to identify common management practices followed by farmers in Kandi area. A total of 100 famers from four different villages of Block Talwara were selected and information was collected through a pre-tested schedule. It was observed that anestrous (56 %) and repeat breeding (31 %) were the two most common problems of the dairy animals of the area. Snake bite and diarrhea (any cause) was identified as the most common reasons for calf mortality. Ectoparasites such as ticks were reported by most of the farmers (58 %) on their dairy animals. Majority of the farmers (69 %) used to feed colostrum to their calves after placental shedding and milked their animals with thumb pressing/knuckling. Majority of them (69 %) also got their animals vaccinated against prevalent infectious diseases. Most of the farmers (72%) were not aware of deworming practices.
