Book "Milk Production - Advanced Genetic Traits, Cellular Mechanism, Animal Nutrition and Management" is made for the publication of continuation of advances in the knowledge involving milk production. This book is divided into two main sections and is devoted to more specific consideration of areas with aspects of genetics factors and the molecular and cellular mechanisms, animal management, nutrition and husbandry.
When I was invited by InTech Open Access Publisher, to author/edit the books on Milk
Production, I immediately realized both the importance of such books that are concerned
with milk production. The difficulty of assembling such books rests on the fact that
lactation is a complex process and the vast amount of research, fundamental and applied
has been carried out. Milk production is not concerned only with the cow. The sense of
milk production is concerned worldwide with the milk of cows, sheep, goats and
Dalton et al. reported the average production costs and returns for 2004 from a sample of 30
organic dairy farms in Vermont and Maine. They reported a total cost for organic milk
production of $22.58 per cwt, before a deduction for unpaid operator labor and management,
which was not significantly different from milk revenues. Thus organic milk production did not
generate any return to unpaid labor and management nor did it produce a positive return to farm
assets or equity.
Book "Milk Production - An Up-to-Date Overview of Animal Nutrition, Management and Health" is organized into three main sections, and is concerned with the animal nutrition, animal management and, breeding and animal health. This book permits the reader's exposure to the expert's experience and scientific style of interpreting and integrating available data into his own views.

In Pakistan, a two-tiered action plan is required: to develop systems, which provide profitability
for the smallholder and maintain quality through the supply chain, while assisting the
development of larger scale commercial farms. We believe the co-existence of both kinds of farms is
the reality of dairying in Pakistan and development efforts must provide solutions for both smallholders
and commercial farmers. The Chinese model of farm development may provide a good example.
Milk production in China is very diverse.

Dairy products form the major part of functional foods. To understand their
success it is important to know that milk is a natural and highly nutritive part of a
balanced daily diet. Designing and developing functionality in dairy-based products
simply means modifying and/or enriching the healthy nature of the original base.
This chapter is a brief introduction to the composition of milk and the nature of
fermented milk products. It also gives a few definitions and introduces some of the
functional dairy products on the market.
Organic milk production systems rely on ecologically based practices that virtually prohibit the
use of antibiotics and hormones in the cow herd and the use of synthetic chemicals in the
production of cattle feed. Organic milk production systems also attempt to accommodate the
animals’ natural nutritional and behavioral requirements, for example ensuring that dairy cows
have access to pasture (Greene and Kremen).
In Ethiopia, to meet the ever-increasing demand for milk, milk products and beef and
thus contribute to economic growth, genetic improvement of the indigenous cattle has
been proposed as one of the options. Genetic improvement of the indigenous cattle,
basically focusing on crossbreeding, has been practised for the last five decades but with
little success. Selection as an improvement tool has been given less emphasis. There
are no systematic and organized selection schemes for cattle genetic improvement in
The future potential demand for organic products in the Transkei and the Ciskei is also
shown in Figure 4. The trend in Figure 4 showed that the four products with the highest
potential demand in the Transkei and the Ciskei in order of priority are Fresh vegetables;
fresh fruits; milk and milk products; and meat and meat products. Generally the trend in
Figure 4 shows that there are marked increases in the future demand of all organic
products. This augurs well for the growth of the organic industry in the Eastern Cape and...
Livestock was reared mostly in rural areas while milk and milk
products were consumed both in rural and urban areas. Because the
marketable surplus of milk available with individual farmers was too small
to justify a trip to the nearest town, it was sold to middlemen who often
exploited the farmers by charging an amount in excess of the cost of their
services, reducing farmers’ returns on the one hand and charging higher
prices to the consumers on the other. The Plan document noted that some
milk production also took place in ‘congested and insanitary pockets by
