Abstract

In the rural setting dairying is considered as a subsidiary occupation to supplement the income and employment generation. However, technologies related to livestock production are becoming increasingly available, but the mechanism for transferring these technologies to the rural areas has not been satisfactorily developed. There exists a wide gap between the recommended and actual adoption of these technologies. This is due to certain factors as perceived by the farmers. The dairy farmers have their own role for adopting new technologies or practices and accordingly they influence the other dairy fanners in their own way. The results shows that the large proportion of landless fanners had low level of adoption while majority of marginal farmers and small fanners had medium level of adoption. It also indicates the factors currently responsible for ideal rate of transfer of technology and finally the adoption. The constraints experienced by farmers Le. Low conception rate in artificial insemination, proper and balance feeding, high cost of medicine, cost of resources, location of veterinary dispensaries and knowledge etc greatly influence the success of dairy production. Well co-coordinated efforts will certainly result in smooth transfer and adoption of such improved dairy fanning practices.
