Description

A consortium led by ICRISAT implemented a slew of measures over two years to improve dairying in a drought-prone north Indian region, which has resulted in a 95% birthrate of female calves, high efficiency early pregnancy detection, improved green fodder production and a 1-3 liters increase in milk production. Dairying in Bundelkhand region of India’s Uttar Pradesh has not progressed to the extent it has in other regions of the state and across other states of India. It remains constrained due to presence of low yielding non-descript cattle, low milk yield, less breedable population, scarcity of water, lack of green fodder, dominance of middle men in marketing and poor scientific knowledge. Another reason is Anna Pratha, a worrying socio-economic practice of cattle abandonment.
