The estimates of livestock product like meat, milk, wool and eggs etc. are being obtained every year by the different states/union territories by using the methodology developed earlier by the institute for estimation of livestock products under the centrally sponsored scheme on ‘Estimation of Major Livestock Products’ But with growing demand of small area statistics for formulating development programmes at grass root level and taking policy decision, it has become necessary to develop estimates of lower level such as district level. Thus small area estimation techniques is an answer to this problem. In this paper an attempt has been made to develop district level estimates with the help of synthetic method of estimation. The data has been obtained from the Department of Animal Husbandry, Government of Haryana for the year (1993–94). Fifteen districts of Haryana have been taken up to estimate cow milk production for the three seasons i.e. summer, rainy and winter. It is observed that in every season, the district level estimates of production of cow milk were with high degree of precision, the percentage standard error ranges from 1.85 to 3.20. The estimates were generally of the same order for different seasons within a district. Between the season, the estimates for winter season were accompanied the % SE of usual estimates varied from 4.58 to 18.25 those of the post stratified estimates ranged from 3.93 to 24.77. The corresponding values in respect of synthetic estimateS were in the narrow range of 2.10 to 3.08, thus showing the merit of synthetic estimation which is small area estimation technique over the usual estimation procedure
