India has emerged as the largest producer of milk with 21.24 percent share in total milk production in the world. But the quality of milk produced in India does not match the international standards in terms of its constituents, shelf life and nutritive values. In terms of export of milk and milk products, India stands at 36th position which is due to low quality. Milk production increases 6.5 percent compared to previous year. Milk harvesting is an art and science in dairy farm. Majority of the states draws milk twice in a day. Majority of the respondents uses clean utensils during milking. Few respondents followed teat dipping after milking. The main aim is to produce high quality milk with consistency by a well defined milking technique along with maintaining clean environment for all milch animals. Majority of the dairy farmers dry off their animal before to month calving. The study indicates milking management practice in majority of the dairy farmers is satisfactory but there is a scope for further improvement in milk production practices by creating awareness.
