Abstract: Milk co-operatives are an integral part of the milk marketing and dairy development programme in India. The study was undertaken with specific objectives of pattern of inputs procurement by the dairy farmers from MPCS, the pattern of milk procurement by MPCS, cost and return structure in milk production and problems faced by the dairy farmers. The primary data pertaining to specific objectives were collected from the sample dairy farmers by personal interview method using pre-tested schedule. Multistage sampling technique was adopted for selection of farmers for the study. Analytical techniques employed were tabular analysis, budgeting technique and Garrett’s ranking technique. The input supply services like feed, fodder, veterinary services, loan facilities and milk cans were analysed in terms of average quantity of procurement and frequency of procurement. It showed that in case of feed out of 120 sample dairy farmers surveyed 110 (91.67 %) farmers procured the feed from the society. The number of dairy farmers opting to purchase inputs from other agencies other than MPCS was less. And even the quantities purchased were also less. The pattern of sale of milk by the sample dairy farmers to the different agencies showed that the average quantity of milk sold differed according to the stage of lactation period. The total cost incurred in milk production was 42342.85 per annum and the gross returns from milk production were 52875 per animal per annum. The net returns in milk production per animal/annum were found to be 10532.15 leading to benefit cost ratios of 1.25. High cost of cattle feeds and lack of good quality concentrates, non-availability of emergency veterinary services and artificial insemination facilities, high cost of cross-breed cattles, low prices and delayed payment, were the major problems faced by the dairy farmers in production and marketing of milk.
