Abstract:
The profitability of any dairy farm depends on their milk production performances. Hence, to determine the association of milk productivity with various farm management parameters, the data was collected from randomly selected 44 dairy farms regarding all the aspects of management viz. production, reproduction, feeding, housing, health and miscellaneous management activities. The result revealed that out of 26 parameters, 19 parameters was found to have significant association with milk productivity (L/SAU/day). The number of days open/calving conception interval and labour utilization efficiency/labour productivity (Rs./kg) was found to have significantly negative association, while, overall pregnancy rate (%), first service conception rate (%), peak milk yield (L), herd average (L), culling/adult mortality rate (%), pregnant non-pregnant ratio, milch dry ratio, regularity in deworming and faecal examination, better forage concentrate ratio, presence of adequate stocking capacity, irrigation facilities, automation in milking, higher degree of farm automation, loose housing system with proper waste disposal system along with environmental controlled dairy housing was found to have significantly positive association with milk productivity. Hence, it could be expected that improvement in these management parameters is supposed to improve the milk productivity of a dairy farm.
