A study was conducted in Tarikhet Block of Almora district of Uttaranchal during 2000–2001 for assessing constraint and suitable strategies regarding livestock production practices. Study revealed that the major constraints were shortage of feeds and fodders during dry season, traditional method of feeding, scattered and low land holding, poor animal productivity i.e. low milk production, large number of non descript type animal, lack of breeding bull, poor extension services and monopoly gender role in livestock activity. The suitable strategies suggested that increase the production of feed resources through planting of fodder tree and grasses in community land area, strategically supplementation of deficient of critical nutrient through mineral mixture, UMMB, common salt and leguminous fodders, supply surplus crop residues available elsewhere the state; promotion of manufactured livestock feeds utilization, educate to farmers for modern livestock rearing practices, equity of gender role, supply the breeding bull in village and appointed skilled veterinary staff at village level.
