Abstract

The objective of the present investigation was to investigate the profile, motivational factors,
herd size, production and sale of milk, profitability and satisfaction and entrepreneurial traits of
dairy cooperatives on gender basis. The study was conducted in Haryana State, India on a sample
of 200 members of dairy cooperative, comprising of 100 men and 100 women drawn from 10
villages of two districts. It was revealed from the study that majority of men and women were in
middle age group, had nuclear families, men had better educational status and annual income
was considered in middle range. Majority of the men members have 3-5 cattle (48%) and women
up to 2 cattle (53%). The daily production and sale of milk was high for men i.e.18.4 and 13.1
litres while this was 15 and 10 litres by women members, respectively. Both genders feel that
dairying is moderately profitable and were highly satisfied. On the motivational front, majority of
