Abstract

A study was conducted to identify the dairy cattle housing management by collecting data from 220 dairy farmers in Puducherry. Out of 451 dairy cows, 81.6 per cent of dairy cows had a body condition score of 3. This indicated that most of the cows in Puducherry region were having frame and covering well, high producing, but body fat may not be enough for peak production.
