  Livestock plays a pivotal role in the Indian economy. About 70% of India’s population is dependent on agriculture and livestock associated activities. Animal husbandry is probably the most important amalgamated activity providing a means of instant cash to farmers and thus plays a vital role in socio-economic life of livestock farmers in India. Economical and balanced feeding of livestock for optimum production is extremely important. The value of milk group stands at Rs. 7,58,417 crores and the livestock sector contributes nearly 4.9% to India’s GDP.
