Registered author(s):

    The state of Gujarat has historically been the front runner in milk production activities. The state’s share in country’s milk production as well as per capita availability of milk have been increasing consistently, ensuring not only food security but also employment and livelihood sustenance in the rural areas. A phenomenal growth in milk production of cross-bred cows has been witnessed in recent years, especially in the southern and northern regions of the state. Historically, among the various factors contributing to growth in milk production, incremental dairy animal population has been the important factor. However, henceforth it is the yield of lactating animals – a single-most significant factor that needs to be focused for augmenting and sustaining growth in milk across any type of dairy animal.
