Profession : Dairy Farm and Agrofarming
Livestock is important asset for the farmers and critical in supporting their livelihoods. Cow keeping can be an economical and sustainable profession as demonstrated by Mr. Shobit Kumar Tyagi of Kakepur village of Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh. He was a small and traditional dairy farmer. He possesses about 9 acre of land which includes his house and cattle shed. He was struggling to become a dairy entrepreneur. One day, he came in contact with the Scientists of ICAR Central Institute for Research on Cattle, Meerut Cantt. Meerut and subsequently was advised to gain knowledge on scientific dairy farming focused on breed improvement of cattle. He started his journey in 2010 with three cows along with his ancestral farming. Presently he has more than 210 Indigenous (Sahiwal, Rathi, Gir, Hariana breeds) and 66 high yielding crossbred cows (ranging between 15-20 kg milk per days). In the span of last five years, he has achieved many milestones, these include supplying of various dairy products. He mainly prepares ghee using cream separation which is sold at Rs. 550 per Kg. and also by the traditional churning method which is sold @ Rs. 1000/- per Kg., Additionally, butter milk is sold at Rs. 20-25/kg.. He also started making compost manure from cow dung for his own farming and production of bio-gas using cow dung at a small scale. He is not applying chemical fertilizers in his fields. Before coming into contact of this institute, he was not aware of scientific rearing of his cattle, the production of his cows was very low and his expenditure was more on animal health. He is now getting about 600 kg of milk per day and earning about Rs.50,000 to 100000 per month. Besides increased milk yield, he is also benefitted by the institute in getting scientific guidance on feeding and management of cows, receipt of good quality semen, preventive health care, first aid for his animals and feed supplements. He is using homemade concentrate for balancing the diet of cow herd and animals are so healthy that they rarely fall ill. Mostly feed and fodder are self-cultivated but occasionally purchasing from other farmers.

Additional income has helped him to convert a temporary shed in to 04 permanent self-constructed tinned roof well aerated and comfortable shed with 10,000 sq. feet covered area for animals. His family is also enjoying a good socioeconomic status in the village and they are all leading a comfortable life. In future, he plans to increase the production of bio gas and promote the self treatment by Gopanch i.e. Gomutra, Goarka from cow dung, Cow milk, Cow butter milk and Cow ghee. His whole family feels indebted to ICAR-CIRC, Meerut for bringing happiness and change in their life. Mr Shobit Kumar Tyagi has become a live example and role model for a number of unemployed youths of this area.
