Important Points

When we use the word "Animal" in animal husbandry, we mean only those domesticated animals which are reared mostly for economic or for recreation purposes, such as cattle, buffalo, sheep, goat, camel, pig, horse, etc. It also includes poultry farming and fisheries. Fisheries include rearing, catching selling, etc. of fish, molluscs (shell fish) and crustaceans (prawns, crabs, etc).
Animal husbandry is a science and an art of management including feeding, breeding, housing, health care of common domestic animals for getting maximum benefits.
Management is the art and science of combining ideas, facilities, processes, materials and labour to produce and market a worthwhile product or service successfully.
Dairying is the management of animals for milk and its products for human consumption. Cows, buffaloes, goats and sheep are the animals that we would expect in a diary.
These are ‘breeding, weeding, feeding and heeding’. Both the male and female animals selected for breeding should be of superior quality. Weeding aims that uneconomic animals must be prevented from reproducing. Feeding is also very important for animals. Each animal should be fed on a balance ratio. Heeding (pay attention to) implies good animal management and general supervision including housing care and maintenance of proper cleanliness and hygiene.
