Animal husbandry is rising as the most lucrative Agri-business in India, providing decent employment to millions of people.

Milk and milk-based products are becoming more popular in India. As a result, the demand for animals that are at the forefront of milk production has skyrocketed.

There are several varieties of cows that can produce more than 50 litres of milk every day. Cow’s milk is also thought to be particularly healthy, hence its market demand is usually strong. However, few cattle owners are aware that there are many such cows in the nation, each of which may produce up to 80 litres of milk every day. Let us inform you about some of these cow breeds.
