Abstract

The study attempted farm level analysis of production and marketing behaviour of dairy farmers, in three major milk
producing states, namely Punjab, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh of India. These states represent geographic and institutional
diversity of milk production and marketing in India. The study also identified the major constraints faced by the dairy
farmers and suggested policy prescriptions for creating future opportunities for the resource poor farmers and entrepreneurs
engaged in this sector.
