Abstract:

The present study was conducted in three blocks of Nagpur district of Maharashtra with 20 dairy farmers from each block. In a sample size of total 60 dairy farmers, assessment of the information needs of dairy farmers was conducted. Ex-post facto research design was used to access the data through personal dialogue using interview schedule. Five most important information needs of dairy farmers were breeding management, care and management, health management, feeding management and distribution and marketing. These 5 major particulars were subdivided into 45 sub-particulars for the assessment of the information needs of the dairy farmers on three point continuum viz. very important, important and not important. Through the help of frequency and percentage of information need particular perceived as most important, ranking and preference pattern of major and minor information need was performed. The results clearly indicated that breeding management (61.68%) was presented as the major area for information needs followed by care and management (53.33%), health management (50.00%), feeding management (43.34%) and distribution and marketing (25.00%). Other subtopics perceived as most important information needs were distribution and marketing, artificial insemination, water requirements, vaccination schedule, feeding of concentrate feed and availability of market for milk.
