Abstract

  

Introduction

Global journal of dairy farming and milk production is a peer reviewed journal it publishes all kind of articles regarding the topics dairy, milk, cows, rural development etc. coming to the villages we can see the farming culture in every home. People from villages will have at least one cow or buffalo and they don’t depend on the milk suppliers. Milk from villages gets transported to cities and even it is exported to other countries. In villages even most of the women are into this dairy farming. They are habituated to it. In order to maintain dairy farming one must have lot of space in order to grow food for animals. At least we should have 2 acres of land to grow the food. To set up a dairy farm we have to setup some requirements before establishing it some of them are space requirements and shelter requirement different varieties of breeds, managing the dairy farm, disease control dairy farm and reproduction or breeding management. In rural areas they follow certain type of techniques to takeout the milk but coming to urban areas dairy farming is completely a business they do hormonal injections to the animals and take the milk out through the machines and they take the child away from mother immediately and use it as meat due to those injections their udders become very large and they are fixed in machines while milking it is very hard and painful process. The major risks of having a dairy farming is milk price variability and greenhouse gas emissions which is the major reason to the climate change more over from large number of cows there is a lot of wastage coming out lot of nitrogen gets released if this waste is not treated properly there will be a contamination of surrounding water and in order to clean that water it will take a lot of time if milking is not done properly the cow may face lot of problems if it was in the middle of lactation there are some situations where milking is not done properly the cow may get affected from bruising, udder injury, sickness and also may lead to death. The major problem is cows are like human beings they only produce milk after giving birth to the child so at least one calf per year but in dairy farms cows are artificially inseminated within 3 months of giving birth. The temperature range for dairy farming is in between 25 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit if the temperatures go above the set level the cows stop taking food which may result in giving less milk if the safety precautions are not taken properly. Coming to safety there should be clean surroundings be aware of entrance and exit points. The milk that comes from dairy cows contains some hormones this results in the increase of obesity, heart diseases and in men we can observe prostate cancer and ovarian cancer in women. So from this we can conclude that there are some advantages and disadvantages too.
