The cattle industry is the backbone of the local population in Assam. Lakhimi is dual purpose breed of cattle found in the entire state of Assam. The other major cattle breeds in Assam are Sahiwal, Holstein Friesian, Hariana, Jersey, and Gir. It is important to note that more than 80% of cattle are owned by farmers. The average milk production per day is considerably less than the national average because of multiple factors and one of them is inadequate feed and fodder. Because of being one of the high-quality protein sources and income, poultry farming in Assam is on boom currently resulting in an increase in both backyard and commercial poultry farming. Broilers, ducks, layers, and backyard poultry are the major types of poultry reared in Assam. With cattle, poultry, and fish industries thriving in Assam, livestock farming is no different! It includes sheep, goats, and pigs. These animals play an important role in meat production and the socio-economic development of the rural population of Assam.
