Abstract

The study was conducted in purposively selected Nilgiri district of Tamil Nadu state. The study revealed that non-availability of veterinary staff in tribal area (breeding dimensions), preference for growing potato crop rather than growing fodder crops (feeding dimension), lack of knowledge about symptoms of common contagious diseases and their preventive measures (health dimensions) and reliance on the indigenous method of deworming and castration (management dimensions) were perceived as the important constraints in adopting improved dairy farming practices by majority of the respondents.
