that most of the farmers were medium milk producers (7.14 / day/ family) and marginal farmers
(with 0.67 acres of land per family). They generally owned quality dairy cattle. Proper education
of the farmers regarding managemental practices and disease prevention of their livestock was
needed for enhancing milk production.
