Abstract

India is one of the largest milk-producing country, but due to the steady success of milk production.Due to the fast mode of urbanization, people getting into this sector are reducing. The cost of production is also increasing in India. The study is undertaken in Kerala State in India, where milk production is not having a linear growth for the past few years.Allocative efficiency estimation is used to analyze the sustainability of dairy farming in Kerala using stochastic cost frontier method.A total of 150 samples were chosen to estimate efficiency. The mean allocative efficiency was high in Thiruvanthapuram district with 66.56 per cent. Malappuram district has 63.48 per cent, and Ernakulam district has 61.22 per cent. There is still room to improve efficiency further. Only if the farmers increase their efficiency, dairy farming can be sustainable for the future generation
