Abstract:
The aim of the study was to look into the current management practices of crossbred dairy cattle among farmers in the Cauvery delta region of Tamil Nadu, mainly Tiruchirappalli, Thanjavur, and parts of Pudukkottai districts. For a total of 90 farmers, a pre-tested questionnaire was used to collect information on current management practices and constraints from the crossbred dairy farmers. Garett's ranking methodology was used to assess the farmers' constraints. The study revealed that the crossbred dairy farmers are using most of the basic components of management aspects related to dairy cattle rearing. Further, the farmers face a number of challenges, including shortage of feed resources, high concentrate costs, repeat breeding, a lack of knowledge about animal selection and breeding and involvement of middlemen in marketing. As a result, motivating farmers and providing them with expertise and cutting-edge technologies on dairy cattle rearing would pave the way for improved production and resource access in crossbred dairy farming.
