An intensive survey was conducted in Tarikhet Block of Almora District of Uttaranchal comprising of 150 farmers of 17 villages, for assessing the availability and ingredient proportion of conceotrate mixtures. Results revealed that preparation of concentrate mixtures by farmers was mostly dependant on locally available feed resources like wheat, minor millet, rice, soybean and bhat. About 95% farmers used wheat atta (flour) as major ingredient of concentrate and 5.3% farmers were using purchased pashu ahar (compound feed) for only productive animals. Availability of home made concentrate was 597,664 and 847 g/d/household under smaD, medium and large farmers, respectively and compound feed was 41, 54 and 263 g/d/household, respectively thus the availability of concentrate mixture was increased with the size of land holding. Highest availability of concentrate (0.863 kg) supply was in the month of January, which was represented by monthly availability.
