Abstract:

A field study was undertaken to find out the shelter management practices followed by the farmers of Patan district of North Gujarat region. Five talukas were randomly selected for the study viz., Patan, Sidhpur, Chanasma, Harij and Santalpur. Three villages were selected from each taluka and from each village 10 respondents who reared buffalo either alone or mixed with cattle were selected by using a multistage random sampling technique. The analyses revealed that majority (58.00%) of the respondents were from the old age group (above 45 yrs.). The low literacy level of animal keepers forced them to adopt the animal husbandry profession as 87.34% respondents were either illiterate (50.00%) or low literate (37.34%). Half (58.00%) of the farmers were from medium size family (5 to 8 members), and small herd size (32.00%) of less than 5 animals. 55.33% respondents had medium herd size (4 to 6 animals). Most of the respondents (79.33%) adopted intensive type of buffalo husbandry system.
