There has been a significant increase in the population of crossbred cattle and decrease in indigenous cattle population. Overall, total population of cattle has decreased. Increase in cross breed population reflects the direct influence of the Breed Improvement Programs being carried out. There has been a decline in the population of buffaloes and sheep also. There was significant increase in population of goats. Interestingly there has been a very significant increase in poultry which may be attributed to increasing consumption trends of poultry meat and eggs.
