Abstract: Holstian Friesian and Jersey cross breeds of cattle are being reared for milk and manure by stall-feeding practices in several places and altitudes of Meghalaya. Both the types of breeds can yield more milk for longer duration during each lactation period, on account of which the dairy development scheme at private level has been much flourished in Meghalaya. Cattle breeders usually supplement the paddy straw and dry grasses during lean period (October-May) by green fodder lopped from 126 tree species belonging to 77 genera under 46 families. These fodder trees have their respective palatability and lopping cycle.
