Abstract:

The study on Labour utilization pattern in management of various categories of cattle was undertaken at three dairy farms SKN COA, dairy farm, Jobner, Agrim dairy farm, Kumbhpura and Mahila dairy farm, Harnath ki dhani, for a period of 90 days to find out the time taken by the labour for various activities on the farms viz. milking, cleaning, feeding and miscellaneous work. Animals were divided into 6 groups i.e. G1 (milch cows), G2 (pregnant cows), G3 (dry cows), G4 (calves), G5 (heifers) and G6 (bull and bullocks). The average total working time in milking operations was more effective on the basis of less taken time (min/cow/day) at Agrim dairy farm (14.05±0.048) as compared to Mahila (14.34±0.130) and SKN COA, dairy farm (16.51±0.076). The average time in cleaning operation was 8.30±0.43, 8.68±0.46 and 9.09±0.45 min/animal/day at Agrim, Mahila and SKN COA, dairy farm, respectively. The average time (min/animal/day) taken in feeding and watering was more effective at Agrim dairy farm (8.85±0.44) than Mahila (9.19±0.48) and SKN COA, dairy farm (9.96±0.68). The average time (min/animal/day) taken in miscellaneous work was more effective at Agrim dairy farm (3.44±1.33) as compared to Mahila (3.70±1.29) and SKN COA, dairy farm (4.63±1.65). The average total working time (min/animal/day) in all activities was lowest at Agrim dairy farm (34.64) as compared to Mahila dairy farm (35.91) and SKN COA, dairy farm (40.19). The average total working time (min/labour/day) taken for various activities was highest at Agrim (278.30) as compared to Mahila (223.36) and SKN COA, dairy farm (175.24). The average total working time (min/animal/day) was highest in G1 (34.93), followed by G6 (27.22), G2 (22.21), G5 (20.44) G3 (16.85) and G4 (15.98) groups at most effective Agrim dairy farm. Average manage of animal/labour/day in G1, G2, G3, G4, G5 and G6 groups at Agrim dairy farm was 13.74, 21.61, 28.48, 30.03, 23.48 and 17.64, respectively. It is shows that one labour can manage maximum 13 milch cows per day. Therefore, it is concluded that the labour efficiency of Agrim dairy farm was better as compared to other dairy farms because total working time/animal/day was more effective as well as total working time/labour/day was also more and one labour could manage more number of animals at Agrim dairy farm. The labour utilization pattern for milking process was maximum, followed by the feeding, cleaning and miscellaneous works.
