Abstract: Millions of farmers keep livestock for the purpose of milk production, and every year a wide variety of diseases, some of which can be fatal, cause illness in these animals. Even cattle and buffalo that have a significant threat of disease transmission. They are among the most susceptible people to the introduction of zoonotic diseases into the human population. Milk is in danger of running out in the not too distant future since both consumer demand and the dairy business are both on the rise. Dairy products are progressively used in more and more foods. Farmers take a financial hit each year as a result of illnesses that affect milking dairy animals; the scale of these losses can approach millions of dollars at the national level. At both the state and the national level, there needs to be a diseases control policy in order to put a stop to the losses. In addition to this, the tight interaction that exists between humans and the animals that they have domesticated presents the highest risk of the spread of a range of infectious diseases. The state animal department and the government of India need to conduct an active review of the situation across the state because the number of households that have milk animals has increased. They should also give the process of establishing new rules and putting them into practice the utmost significance, both with the purpose of strengthening the regulation of diseases that are prevalent among the population and with the purpose of reducing the risk of zoonotic transmission. The purpose of this review is to identify and put into effect those measures that will contribute significantly to the eradication of the cattle illnesses that are most prevalent. In this review, we provide a summary of the most prevalent livestock diseases, probable zoonotic diseases, and developing diseases, as well as present and potential regulations that ought to be put into place.
