Rearing of livestock is an age-old practice in India. More than 62% of marginal and small farmers directly associated with livestock sector [7]. In pursuant with 20th Livestock Census, the total Livestock population is found to be 535.78 million showing an increase of 4.6% over Livestock Census of 2012, in which the total population of cattle is given as 192.49 million accounting the highest portion accounting for 35.94% of total livestock. It is worth mentioning that India remained as the largest producer of milk in the globe for the past few decades.
