Abstract

The study was conducted on the training needs of Dairy Farm Instructors (DFIs) of the Dairy Development Department of Kerala. The data were collected through structured questionnaires to which 75 DFIs out of 120 responded. Both knowledge and skill needs were assessed for the major subject matter areas of milk and milk products and dairy cattle production and management. As far as the domain of milk and milk products is concerned, the sub area of procurement, storage and quality control of milk ranked first whereas, among the sub areas under dairy cattle production and management, selection of dairy cattle stood first for both knowledge and skill needs.
