But in productivity India is at 45 th place in the world USA/ New Zealand are the highest productivity countries Because of poor feeding, management and breed quality our productivity is low

7 Quality Dairy Animal Breed and Genetics Cost effective and balanced feeding. Green Fodder is the main diet and Source for low cost (should be 60% to 70% in diet) Dry Fodder Energy Protein Concentrates Minerals and Vitamins Dry fodder should be 15 to 20 % of the total ration Concentrates should be 15 to 20 % of the total ration Regular de-worming of adult and young animal Regular vaccination for FMD and others diseases if necessary Medicated bath once in a month-which remove all the external parasite because these parasite transmit many economical importance disease like Anaplasmosis,Theileriosis and babesiosis. Effective breeding management to achieve one calf in fifteen month.
