Abstract:

Present investigation was carried out to estimate health care and management practices knowledge level of goat farmers of Punjab. Information was collected through personal interview schedule from 240 goat farmers (40 goat farmers each from all the six agro-climatic zones). Knowledge about vaccination schedule, vaccine, deworming schedule, ectoparasite control, mastitis, cleaning of udder, teat dipping was with 38.33%, 26.25%, 51.25%, 45.42%, 47.50%, 48.33% and 40.00% goat farmers respectively. 38.75%, 30.00%, 44.17%, 32.50%, 43.75%, 44.17%, 44.58%, 39.58%, 45.83% and 41.67 % goat farmers possessed knowledge about common diseases, zoonotic disease, record keeping, management during adverse climate, method of milking, cleaning of milking utensil, colostrum feeding, weaning of kid, ligation & disinfection of naval cord and kid deworming respectively. Knowledge about disbudding, castration, tagging, hoof trimming, age estimation by dentition, quarantine and proper disposal of dead goat was with 45.83%, 37.08%, 32.50%, 34.17%, 21.25%, 19.58% and 21.67% goat farmers respectively. The mean awareness of goat farmers about health and management practices in Punjab was 38.09% and was in medium category. Also, significant difference (P < 0.01) exist between Health & management knowledge score of different agro-climatic zones of Punjab. It suggest the assessment of knowledge level of goat farmer of a particular area first before organizing any extension activity and the importance of organizing more health and management related extension activities at the doorstep of the farmer.
