Future of dairy farmers depends on the successful raising of the young calves. Main objective of this trial is the doubling farmer income by dairy farming, by using test groups of calves, T1 feeded with concentrate and multivitamin and T2 feeded with concentrate multivitamin and green fodder (balance soil) Berseem. On the basis of statistical analysis, found that there is significant variation in all the tested parameters. The mortality percent determined for calf during the study period was 6.66 percent. In the present study the calf mortality recorded at unorganised dairy farm was relatively low perhaps can be attributed to both good management, feeding practices. It is important that the calf is given nutritious feed in the form of balance ration, multivitamin and fodder from its initial stage of rumen development. This will ensure good milk yield when it becomes a cow or produce better germplasm as a bull.
