The study was aimed at assessing the milking practices adopted at animal level under Individual Milking System (IMS) and Community Milking System (CMS). Three Individual Milking Cooperative Societies (IMCS) and three Community Milking Cooperative Societies (CMCS) each from Bangarpet and Kolar taluks of Kolar district were randomly selected. Ten farmers from each IMCS and a supervisor from each CMCS were randomly selected with a objective of assessing the milking practices adopted under IMS and CMS at animal level. Results from the study found that, in case of Individual Milking System, cent per cent of the farmers tested the animal’s milk for mastitis before milking by physical observation and practiced the fore stripping. While in case personnel under CMS of study areas, majority (83.34%) of the personnel did not practice fore stripping but maintained the time duration of 6 to 10 minutes for milking.
