Majority of houses consisted of mud floor (80.19 per cent), with side wall (64. per cent) with either asbestos (72.2 per cent) or thatches (27.8 per cent) as roofing material. The sheds had good ventilation and were without any manger facilities. Water was supplied in separate buckets individually, in limited quantity, in the morning and evening before milking.
