Each type of bovine livestock, viz. crossbred cattle, nondescript cattle and buffaloes, will be separately classified by age, sex and use. For each of them, the number belonging to different classes will be recorded in appropriate columns.
The number of cattle and buffaloes owned by the household on the date of survey will be recorded in this block. The total number of cattle owned by the household will be first classified into two groups, viz. (a) crossbred cattle and (b) nondescript cattle. Crossbred cattle's are those which are produced by crossing the indigenous breed with the exotic breed, i.e. imported foreign variety. For the purpose of the survey, however the cattle of exotic breed will also be considered as crossbred. All the other cattle will be classified as 'nondescript cattle'.
