This study covered 150 cooperative member milk producers and 150 non-member milk producers which were post-stratified into Landless, Marginal, small, medium and large herd size categories. In this study we calculated the per day maintenance cost with three variables i.e, Fodder, Concentrate and Miscellaneous was found to be higher for member group than that of non-member group. It was found to be higher in case of buffalo than that of cow. Per day cost of buffalo and cow milk production was observed to be higher for the non-member as compared to member group. Daily net return was found relatively higher in member group (Large Category) and in Non member group (Landless Category). In cost benefit ration analysis of cow medium category has maximum ratio in both group ie. Member and non member while in buffalo cost benefit ratio was high in small category in both group i.e., member and non member.
