The livestock sector considered to be a major enterprise in agriculture sector. It plays a significant role in the welfare of India’s rural population as it provides income and employment generation to a major section of the farming community. It is increasingly recognized that dairying could play a more constructive role in promoting rural welfare and reducing poverty. Keeping in view the importance of livestock among farming community a study was carried out in five villages of Faizabad district of Uttar Pradesh. For the study sixtybuffalomilk producing households were selected randomly.The net maintenance cost of per milch buffalo per day was estimated by deducting the income from dung from the total maintenance cost. In winter, summer and rainy seasons, it was Rs. 101.85, 98.95 & 91.85 on marginal, Rs. 96.07, 92.94 & 86.60 on small and Rs. 88.14, 85.44 & 80.30, respectively on medium herd size groups. The net profit of milk production per milch buffalo per day  was Rs. 70.28, 69.34 & 86.41 on marginal, Rs. 85.98, 83.84 & 104.24 on small, Rs. 105.77, 103.42 & 121.73 on medium herd size groups in summer, winter and rainy seasons respectively. The cost benefit ratio per milch buffalo per day was 1.63, 1.64 & 1.86 in winter, summer and rainy seasons, respectively on marginal herd size groups. The same trend was found in small and medium herd size groups. In this study the women participation in dairy farming was also work out. The results highlighted that the women participation in milk production was higher in feeding, compost making as compared to other practices. As constraints in dairying farming were studied, these were reported as low price of milk, inadequate knowledge about balanced feeding, lack of vaccination at appropriate time etc.
