The study was conducted in East and South-eastern coastal plain zone of Odisha. Total factor productivity (TFP) in milk production and its determinants were estimated using cross-sectional data obtained from 120 sampled peri-urban dairy farms. The study revealed that TFP was highest for large farms (0.2801) and crossbred cows (0.1328) which meant increase in scale of production and adoption of crossbred cow would be helpful increasing productivity of dairy farms. Herd size and productivity ratio were found to be significantly affecting TFP. An increasing herd size by adopting a greater number of crossbred cows and a proper balanced nutrition would ultimately enhance the productivity of peri-urban dairy farms in Odisha.
