Abstract:
The study was conducted in Sri Mayapur Goshala, situated inside the ISCON temple in Nadia district of West Bengal to gain first-hand information on existing breeding, feeding, and housing management practices for dairy cattle. It was observed that, on this farm, the respondents inseminate their cows at an early heat stage. 100% of breeding is done by artificial insemination method and the cows and bullocks are kept separate in different houses to avoid natural breeding. Pregnancy diagnosis is also done by the labourers of the farm. Regarding feeding practices, along with the stalked foods the animals are also allowed to graze in the field to consume green grasses. A balanced and concentrated diet chart is also maintained for the cattle daily. This dairy farm had a pukka floor with a corrugated sheet. All the cattle have to go through regular grooming practice. The results indicated that knuckling method is executed for the milking purpose. The calves are fed colostrum up to three weeks after birth. The calf delivery process is done by a veterinary team. Regarding sick animal treatment, they are kept separate from the healthy cattle and they are kept in regular check-ups by the veterinary team itself. All the houses of the cattle are regularly washed and disinfected by the labourers by spraying waters and disinfectants.
