Abstract:
Livestock sector is an important source of livelihood in Andhra Pradesh for rural masses and generates regular income to the farmer. Bovine farming is a process to convert available feed and fodder material (input) into milk and other by products (output). The present field survey was conducted with randomly selected milk producers having crossbred cattle through personal interview to study the Milking management practices followed by them in rural areas of Kotabommali Mandal of Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh. The study revealed that most of the farmers followed the wet hand milking and few followed the machine milking but not regularly. Maximum number of farmers adopted knuckling method at the starting of milking operations followed by stripping at the end of milking process. Nobody is carrying out dipping of teats with antiseptic solution. Cleaning of milk utensils was done with disinfectant by majority of the farmers. Before milking, majority of respondents washed their hands with water and 100% of the farmers cleaned the udder only.
