  Animal Husbandry is an economic enterprise and it provides livelihood security to two-third of rural community giving employment to large population of unskilled youth as well as supporting livelihood of the rural population especially marginal, small and landless farmers of our country. The performance of small and marginal farmers depends upon the future of sustainable agriculture growth and food security in India. Livestock provides protein rich products viz. milk, meat, egg as well as draught power, dung as organic manure, domestic fuel, hides and skin, and are a regular source of cash income for rural households in Indian scenario. The proper utilization of animal byproducts and excretory material leads to maintaining the sanitary and hygienic condition of animal’s premises.
