Abstract:

A study was carried out to collect the information regarding existing dairy husbandry practices along with health management practices from 180 selected respondents with the help of predesigned questionnaire in Farrukhabad district of Uttar Pradesh. The present Study revealed that majority of respondents (80.6%) kept their animal inside dwelling house in thatched roof shed (62.8%) with kuccha floor (80.6%) and cemented manger (86.7%). It was observed that 66.7% respondents practice both stall feeding along with grazing and provide home grown as well as purchased feed and fodder and only few respondents (17.8%) provide the extra feed during pregnancy and milking of the animals. It was observed that most of the respondents (73.3%) detect heat by mucus discharge as well as bellowing of animal and follow the artificial insemination within 12-18 hr after the detection of heat. Only 28.9% respondents follow the deworming schedule of calf and adult animals while almost all the respondent follow the vaccination of animals. Finally on the basis of result findings it is concluded that most of the respondents follow the traditional husbandry practices for their livelihood because they do not have the knowledge of modern dairy husbandry practices.
