The paper analyses the process of structural transformation of milk production sector in India. The milk production sector grew by 4 per cent annually. The observed enhancement in productivity is attributable to change in the composition of animals from indigenous to crossbred. Productiveness of milch animals is influenced by quality of cattle feed and its relative price with respect to milk. It was found that there were three phases in the relative movement of milk price with respect to cattle feed. During the period between 1994 and 2003, the price of cattle feed ruled higher than the milk price. In the second phase from 2004 to 2012, price of milk grew faster than the price of cattle feed. The relative price of milk again started falling by 2013. Therefore, the main concerns are to examine the changes in the productiveness of milch animal population and to analyze the factors influencing the changes in milk production.
