S.K. Das, S.K. Singh, B.P.S. Yadav and M.A. Khan    

Abstract: The 2 crossbred low yielding milch cows were maintained in loose housing under the organic farming project and their performances were studied in the system. About 1 ha of land was brought under organic farming. About 50% land was earmarked for crop, i.e., paddy, wheat in different season, 20% land for fishery, 20% land for horticultural crop and 10% land was kept for dairy and fodder production. Overall mean yield of morning milk, evening milk and total milk per cow was found to be 3.966, 2.936 and 6.902 kg, respectively. Average daily intake of dry roughage, green roughage and concentrate per cow was 4.504, 7.134 and 6.371 kg, respectively. Average daily yield of dung was 12.891 kg. Highest total milk yield of cow (10.450 kg) was recorded in the month April. Higher milk yield during the month April was due to availability green fodder. Multiple Regression analysis of data indicated that daily milk yield of cow increases by 339 and 811 g (p<0.01) per kg increase of green roughage intake and concentrate intake.
