Description

This book is primarily aimed to help livestock farmers with basic data regarding the scientific production of milk (Cattle and Buffaloes) and meat (Sheep, Goats, and Rabbits) on a small scale. Not many publications are available to provide answers to several doubts the farmers are likely to get on day – to – day basis, especially to suit Indian conditions.

The number of publications is available on livestock production, but most of them are too descriptive and of standards that ordinary farmers may find it difficult to understand. Therefore, the “Question-Answer” method is employed wherever appropriate with maximum emphasis on practical aspects to facilitate comprehension; scientific reasons are made as simple as possible to help literate farmers understand the basics.

The book includes separate Sections on Cattle and Buffaloes, Sheep and Goats, Pigs, and Rabbits; each section has details of the selection of herd/flock, management, feeding, disease control, and economics. Housing, Sanitation and disinfection, Recordkeeping, and Waste management, which are common to all Sections, are provided as appendices.

It is hoped that this publication would be useful as a handy ready reckoner for farmers who would like to start livestock farming with a small number of animals.
