Shraddhanjali Bhattacharjee.

Abstract
Dairy sector in India owns great potentialities particularly after the launching of ‘Operation Flood programs’
promoting the concept of cooperative approach of milk production. The study has been conducted in Barpeta
district, a home with a number of 63 dairy cooperative societies and a booming center of milk production in Assam.
Present study is an attempt to analyze the economics of milk production among different categories of member
farmers of dairy cooperative societies in Bajali area of Barpeta district.It is found that return from dairy farming is
profitable under dairy cooperative societies as the members of the dairy cooperatives not only keep superior breed of
cattle but also follow better feeding and management practices. The positive impact of cooperatives is the result of
the various efforts taken by the dairy cooperatives in providing several additional services such as subsidized feed,
credit accessibility, training regarding improved dairy farming practices and so on.

Key words: Dairy farmers, dairy cooperative society, cost and return, Barpeta, Assam
