A participatory empowerment model was developed for dairy farmers on the basis of various identified factors in Namakkal district, Tamil Nadu, India. This farmer’s participation model consists of steps like, analyses of resource availability, feeding pattern appraisal and micro level approach with ICT integration. After assessing the availability of feed resources and feeding pattern in the study area, a software was developed to solve the feeding problems of dairy farmers at every farm and every animal level. A least cost problem solving technology was prescribed and disseminated through capacity building. This technology paved way for easy adoption and resulted in economic, social, psychological and technological empowerment of the dairy farmers.
