Abstract- The study was undertaken in Alwar District of Rajasthan with the objectives to examine the input-output relationships and assess the resource use efficiency in milk production. The study covered 75 cooperative member milk producers and 75 non-cooperative member milk producers. The results of Cobb-Douglas production function revealed that concentrate had positive and significant influence on returns from buffalo milk across all the household categories for both the member and non-member groups. Green fodder and dry fodder were also influenced the returns from milk significantly across all the household categories for both the member and non-member groups with the sole exception of large category of non-member group. D1 winter and D2 Rainy dummy variables were found to be positive and statistically significant. The results of Chows test clearly revealed that the production functions between member and non-member groups differed significantly. The results of the resource use efficiency revealed that green fodder was over-utilized in small and medium categories for both the member and non-member groups dry fodder was over-utilized by medium category of member group concentrate was over-utilized by only medium category of member group and by small 26 medium categories of non-member group while it was under-utilized by large category of non-member group and labour was over-utilized by only small category of member group.
