Statistical information regarding milch animals, their rearing and sales of their products in New Zealand and India is illustrated in the given table.
At a glance, it is clear though India dominates the sector with numbers, the proportional productivity of New Zealand’s dairy sector is extremely satisfactory.
The cattle population, which is the first comparison between the two countries is far higher in India(13 million).
This is more than thrice than that of New Zealand’s. Of these, around 5 million milch animals are there in New Zealand, which is approximately 8 million less than India’s. These animals produce around 24 million metric tonnes of milk in New Zealand, whereas in India, this quantity is 156 more. When compared to 10 million dairy farmers in India, New Zealand has only a negligible proportion (1/100). Around 71% is the farmer’s share in consumer price in India, whereas in New Zealand, it is considerably less(30%). However, in the case of the average number of milch animals and the percentage of dairy exported, the pattern is inverse. The 355 milch animals in New Zealand and 93% exports can never be tallied to the corresponding negligible numbers in India. The case is similar the case of milk yield, where the ratio is 13: 3.5 liters.
