Abstract:

The resource use efficiency of dairy animals (jersy and desi) in contributing to the net income of the watershed households in Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh was assessed through Cobb- Douglas production function and further decomposed to find out the income difference between jersy and desi milch animals into its constituent sources through Cobb-Douglas production function and decomposition analysis. The significant regression co-efficents found to be were number of dairy animals and labour cost for desi while cost on concentrates was the only variable in jersy crossbred cows contributing to incomes of the dairy farmers. The decomposition analysis revealed that the overall change in net income was guided by the gap attributable to the relative change in resource use to an extent of 0.8782 per cent and the incomes may be further enhanced by proper utilization of watershed interventions in the hilly region of the selected area.
