The cropped area used to grow fodder for the animals has remained static, at just 4 per cent for about 40 years now.when it comes to productivity, it is way behind most other nations Like Israel’s productivity is 10 times more India has the highest population of livestock and produces a whopping 147 million metric tonnes of milk Despite efforts to leverage cross-breeding of our livestock with those in other countries where the per-animal yield of milk is much, much more, our cows and buffaloes are unable to cope with the climatic variation and 40 per cent of the livestock population is either unproductive when it comes to milk yields or of very little use. hese were some points that were repeatedly referred to, by about a dozen experts including senior bureaucrats, some of whom are veterinary doctors themselves, at the inaugural of a four-day International Livestock Conference & Expo as a part of the 23{+r}{+d}annual convention of Indian Society of Animal Production and Management (ISAPM), hosted by its South India chapter here from Thursday.
