The Productivity of dairy animals is projected to play a bigger role in the future growth of the dairy industry .However the gap in milk yield per animal between India and developed countries is very large. The milk yield in India is just 1.30t/head as compared to 4.89t/ head in developed countries . To bridge these yield gap better management practices of the existing herd is essential . For which formal skilling of the workforce is needed.

In the coming decade, a huge Indian population is going to consume more milk and milk-based products in view of the improved income levels and through adoption of better food habits.
The scenario is very positive and promising for Indian dairy farmers who must be credited for the status Indian dairying enjoys.
They have kept faith in the business and despite bad patches, have kept on investing in milk production with whatever support provided by industry, government and scientists.
Nevertheless, milk being the largest agriculture crop and touching lives of about 70 million farmers, Indian dairying would propel economic growth of farmers, meeting nutritional requirement of a billion plus countrymen and placing milk production activities as much needed employment opportunities to the rural youth.
