Majority of the farmers are marginal and small even though economy of the state is agricultural oriented; in this perspective integrated farming system (IFS) became a viable option for the farmers for their livelihood. In their farming system with the cultivation of crop and vegetables different livestock based enterprises such as dairy, poultry, piggery, fishery etc. were also important options. This present study was designed to identify the determinants effecting to adopt different livestock enterprises at the farmers level; for that purpose total 100 farmers were selected and to analysis the likelihood assess of different enterprises multinomial logit (MNL) model was applied and result says that different socio- economic variables were influencing differently the farmers to availing the livestock enterprises in different condition; such as age, land holding, experience in farming were influencing significantly the farmers to adopt the different enterprises. Further, the study has also found that norms, ethics etc were also associated within the particular social system, so in this context farmers need to be benefited with the help of different modern innovative technologies and farming practices then might be the small holder farmers of the country also will be able to see the better future.
