Abstract

Milk being an easily perishable product, needs to be produced and handled in hygienic way right from farm
till it reaches to the consumers table. The adoption of clean milk production practices has great potential for
increasing the quality of milk production. The review study revealed that majority of the dairy farmers had
adopted routine dairy management practices in the areas of animal house, milking area, milking utensils
and feeding of milking animal management whereas non adopted practices were care of milking animals,
udder management, milker’s hygiene, milking techniques and post milking care practices. Public health
officials should educate them and also regularly monitor their practices to maintain the quality of milk.
Small initiatives in this regard can protect the society by consuming milk from various zoonotic diseases
and health issues.
