Abstract: The study was carried out in 2 Upazillas under Chittagong district with a view to analyze the present socio-economic and profitability status of RCC farming practices on 40 RCC rearers were selected covering the Chandanaish and Satknia Upazila randomly. The study showed that, about 38.00 percent of RCC farm owners were landless, 32.00 percent were small and marginal farmers, 16.00 percent were medium and 14.00 percent were large farmers according to their landholding sizes. The average rearing cost of RCC per cow per year was found on the basis of cash cost, non- cash cost and full cost basis at Tk. 16404.16 Tk. 16400.66, and Tk. 32804.82, respectively. The study also found that, average daily milk yield, lactation yield and lactation length of RCC were found 2.65 liters, 565.21 liters and 213.29 days, respectively. The average gross- return per year per cow of RCC was found at Tk. 24590.00. The average gross returns per lactation per cow of RCC rearing over cash cost and full cost basis were found at Tk 8186.256 and Tk. - 8238.88, respectively. The BCR on the basis of cash cost and full costs per year per cow were found 1.49 and 0.74, respectively. The study also revealed that, the rural farmers prefer RCC farming than other local breeds due high conception rate, each year calving, disease resistance, high milk fat per cent, cost effective farming, low calf mortality, high demand of beef and looking very nice etc. Finally, the study made some recommendations for improving RCC dairy farming in the study areas.
