Management practices followed by dairy farmers in Kanarpura village of Rajasthan

Kalpit Borar and Dr. Rajeev
The study was conducted in the village of Kanarpura in Rajasthan. The study was performed to get on information on living breeding, feeding and accommodation managing methods for dairy cattle. Dairy farmers were chosen aimlessly to learn about the methods they pursue. During the period of my visit, I was able to speak to the growers at incredible heights and was capable to ask queries regarding the numeral of cattle they possessed, their chosen species of cattle and the reasoning after selecting the distinct species, the total milk creation by their dairy farm, the type of meal they feed to their creatures, their maintenance and managing, etc. It was seen that 85.00% of the respondents reported honest assistance while 15.00% of the cattle caretakers depended on synthetic insemination. Regarding feeding methods, the majority of the farmers (89.00%) observed cluster feeding and fed in fallow or harvested areas. Home-prepared concentrate mix was overall (70.00%) in the area. All the cattle caretakers (100.00%) had a kutcha bed in the hut and half of the dairy growers (40.00%) kept their cattle roughly the home. A double-sloped roof along with a double-row accommodation system was observed (20.00%) in the study area. Very few of the respondents observed grooming (30.00%) procedures. The outcomes demonstrated that knuckling was the main form of milking (100.00%). All the respondents (100.00%) washed the udder and teats and washed their hands before milking. More additional half of the respondents (65.00%) provided colostrum to a recently born calf within 2 hours. All the respondents (100.00%) attended to the calf at the time of calving and the majority of the cattle protectors cut and disinfected the navel line of the calf. Only a few respondents (10.00%) dehorned and castrated the calf. Regarding suffering animal treatment, the majority of the cattle caretakers (70.00%) selected first charlatans then veterinary physicians/stockmen. The majority of the respondents (60.00%) observed vaccination and deworming practice. The majority of the cattle caretakers (75.00%) also separated their unhealthy animals from fit animals. The water trough and manger were cleaned at the weekly interval by all the respondents (100.00%), while the animal shed was cleaned daily by the majority (60.00%) of the cattle keepers. I also acquired practical knowledge about the concerns and issues encountered by the farmers in my region. I was capable to collect data about the spoilage of milk due to the absence of depository structures for hold in the area. Corruption at milk co-operative enterprises and unavailability of veterinary physicians at the clinics. The farmers also encountered problems with silage availability due to excessive warmth and drought. India's rustic family owns cattle and has lived growing them since a long time ago. If our policymakers can cause an actual difference in the environment and be capable to donate credit to the rural farmers, the milk system of our nation will change melodramatically. We have come to a lengthy method in periods of milk production from being a nation containing a lack of milk to the most elevated producer of milk in the globe. The dairy farmers of advanced nations have evolved very currently in spans of technology and thus we ought to resume to save our rural dairy farmers by delivering subsidies and setting big import tariffs on milk exports and milk derivatives.
