Abstract:
The study observed variations in cost of milk production across the different categories of herd sizes and animal species. Overall cost of milk production per litre was highest for local cow (₹28.56) followed by buffalo (₹26.66) and then crossbreds (₹19.30), respectively. On an average, returns from milk production per litre was highest in case of buffalo (₹11.51) followed by crossbred (₹8.26) and local cow (₹2.98) respectively. Crossbred contributed the maximum quantity of milk for the Karnataka state though bovine stock dominated by local cow as far as species were concerned. Per litre returns from milk production was highest in case of buffalo (₹11.51) followed by crossbred (₹8.25) and (₹2.98) by local cow Net returns were also remunerative for all the species of animals across the herd size category of households. This draws attention of policy planners to chalk out the future plans to further increase the milk production enabling farmers to double their income.
