Abstract:
The dairy sector plays an important role in India's economy and boosts the income of farmers. The present research was planned to evaluate the efficiency of manpower in the management of different categories of cattle in the dairy unit of the livestock complex, BASU (Patna). The investigations were done for 120 days. During the study, it was found that the work-efficiency of manpower during the morning time is better than the evening time. The average time spent in activities such as milking operations, feeding, watering, calf management, and miscellaneous activities were studied. The average time spent on milking, feeding, and watering activities for milch buffaloes took the most time compared to other categories of animals. The average time spent in the actual milking of cows and buffaloes were 324.52±13.90 and 329.77±8.52 seconds respectively. The average milk yield per day of cows and buffaloes were 2.98±0.18 and 4.31±0.09 kg, respectively. The time taken in rectal palpation and artificial insemination per animal was noted to be 1.37±0.04 and 7.50±0.16 minutes respectively. The training of workers may help to overcome the scarcity of manpower in adverse conditions.
