Farm (கால்நடை பண்ணை)

Animal husbandry is an important component of integrated farming. Agriculture and animal husbandry are interdependent industries. Animal husbandry meets the food needs of the farming family and increases household income. The use of farm and household waste as fodder for livestock will reduce the cost of milk production. Livestock provide food, fuel, manure, skin and traction for humans.

Tamil Nadu is a leader in livestock breeding and production. Tamil Nadu, which has seven per cent Indian cattle and three per cent poultry population, is the fifth largest producer of milk and the second largest producer of eggs. There are 27 farmer training centers and science centers in Tamil Nadu to address scientific and skeptical concerns about animal husbandry.
