India produces about 78 million tons of cattle and buffalo milk, 40 billion eggs, and million tons of meat (including million tons of poultry meat) annually (Dikshit and Birthal, ). Livestock produce dietary protein from the consumption of proteins produced by crop agroecosystems (Bijay Singh et al., ).

Natural pastures are most commonly utilized feed resources in India and contribute significant amount of feed. However, the contribution and productivity of pasture lands is declining with time, mainly due to their diversion for other purposes, and thus reducing the total feed resources The availability and efficient use of the feed resources in India are the primary drivers to maximize productivity of Indian livestock.
