Abstract

A sample of 144 respondents, consisting of 72 members of women dairy co-operative societies and 72 non-members of women dairy co-operative societies were drawn. The respondents were selected randomly from 24 women dairy co-operative societies of 12 randomly selected milk procurement routes. The findings reveal that the member and non-member respondents perceived more constraints in terms of infrastructural and technical mattgs in adoption of improved animal husbandry practices. The economic constraints were perceived least in adoption of improved animal husbandry practices by both members and non-members respondents. There was similarity between rank assigned by member and non-member adopters in animal husbandry practices in different aspects of infrastructural, technical and economic constraints. A correlation exested between overall constraints faced by members and non-members adopters of animal husbandry practices.
