Abstract:

A study was carried out to compare the feeding management practices of specialized dairy farms of north and south Gujarat. The data were collected from each ten specialized dairy farm each from north and south Gujarat. Analyzed data revealed that Machine milking was used by more (35%) dairy farms while, advanced parlour system was used by around 20 per cent dairy farms. Significantly higher (70%) numbers of the dairy farms of north region were preferred machine milking. Majority (70%) of dairy farms were using potassium permanganate as a dipping solution while in 30% of the dairy farms were using iodine as a teat dipping solution. Around 25 per cent dairy farms were using automatic shower system to wash their animals before milking. Majority of the dairy farms (80%) were selling only milk and few dairy farms (20%) were selling milk and its value added products. It was slightly higher in south region as compare to north region. Few dairy farms (20%) were using their waste by selling it in the form of prepared manure in both the regions. Proportion of marketing milk to co-operative sector was higher (55%) while, few dairy farms (5%) were selling their milk through online marketing platform. Significantly higher (80%) of the dairy farms of north region were selling their milk directly to co-operative sector.
