We currently live in a globalised world, but there are still many gaps in the transfer of technology, especially in the agricultural sector, where most producers in Brazil have a low level of education and little quality technical assistance. Producers and researchers need to be provided with knowledge and management techniques suitable for dairy farming in the tropics, whose climatic characteristics deserve particular attention. Forage crops adapted to the high temperatures and high rainfall rates of these regions need to be adopted. It is also essential that the animals are breeds that are more tolerant of high heat and humidity. To this end, this material serves to guide producers, researchers and professionals in the sector towards greater efficiency in milk production in tropical regions.
