Example text

During this stage milk production increases with better feeding and management of animals. However, when technological limits to increasing milk production are encountered because of genetic potential limits of animals, they look for better animals as well as the technologies that increase genetic potential of their animals. At this stage the introduction of AI, milk recording, genetic evaluation, etc. becomes important and they are easily accepted. If one attempts to introduce a milk recording and genetic evaluation programme in an area which has not attained a minimum level of maturity in dairying in terms of existence of remunerative year round market for milk and realization of a certain level of increase in milk production through better feeding and management, the acceptance of the programme would be very limited.

A few small farmers groups are also availing the services of ZDSA. 30 percent respectively (ICAR 2000). In Egypt in 1989 the IDRC of Canada helped the Animal Production Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Cairo University establish a pilot Cattle Information System Egypt (CISE) and in 1996 FAO helped to set up a separate centre. This centre carries out monthly milk recording of farmers’ herds, processes collected monthly milk production and reproduction data and sends feedback to farmers on a monthly basis.

The results of milk recording are summarized in Table 5. In India four organizations are carrying out performance recording of dairy cattle and buffaloes in the country; they are: (i) Kerala Livestock Development Board (KLDB); (ii) National Dairy Development Board (NDDB - ICAR member organization); (iii) Baritya Agro Industries Foundation (BAIF); and (iv) Animal Husbandry Department, Andhra Pradesh (AHDAP). KLDB initiated its field performance recording as a part of its progeny testing programme in 1978.
