Abstract:
The dairy industry in Gujarat faces various challenges that need to be addressed for its sustainable growth. This study focused on the current status and prospects of dairy in Gujarat, as well as the challenges faced by farmers in the district, Panchmahal. For that sake, 120 dairy farmers were interviewed with a structured schedule. Panchmahal district, a tribal dominated district of Gujarat has its own importance in the state due to its largest number of dairy cooperatives whereas milk production and productivity is very much low that needs effective technological interventions in breeding and feeding practices. Dairy farmers in the study area follow the conventional and branded feed for their animals in a proportion of 1.74kg and 3.48kg per day respectively. High price and poor quality of feed are the major issues for the dairy farmers in the district.
