Dairying is the major supplementary income of farmers in the district.  It assures the source of livelihood  support to the farming community. The climatic adaptability, steady income, good market,  better infrastructure facilities, co-ordination  between various agencies ,network of  dairy co-operative societies etc. are the strength of this sector.  All the factors required for animal husbandry is  ideal  in Wayanad District, but has not been properly utilized so far.  Animal Husbandry and Dairying can sustain agriculture sector also.  There is  an increasing trend of  milk production  in the region.
