Abstract:
The study was undertaken to compare the productive and reproductive performance of crossbred and indigenous cows as well as the relative profitability of crossbred and indigenous cows under small holder dairy farming. From this study it was seen that the milk yield and lactation period were 4.10 litre/day and 266 day respectively in crossbred and 2.28 litre/day and 220 days respectively in indigenous cows. The variation in the length of post partum heat period and calving to first services were not statistically significant between the crossbred and indigenous cows. The length of calving interval were statistically significant be to crossbred and indigenous cows. Among the costs (Feed cost, housing cost labor cost, housing cost labor cost, treatment cost and A.I. charge), except the housing costs all costs were statistically significant (p<0.01) between the crossbred and indigenous cows. The returns (sale proceeds of milk, value of cowdung, value of calf and price of empty gunny bags) of the crossbreds were higher than the indigenous cows.
