Abstract:

Dairy sector plays an important role in the Indian economy and in the socio economic development of the country. The present study was conducted to explore the socio-economic profile and constraints faced by the dairy farmers of Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu. The data were collected from 60 dairy farming respondents through structured interview schedule developed for the study. The ex-post facto design research design was employed for the study. The study indicated that 46.67 per cent of the farmers belonged to old age group of above 45 years and were illiterate (36.70 %). Majority (51.70 %) of them had dairying and agriculture as their primary occupation and had more than 10 years of farming experience. Majority of the farmers had medium categories of cosmopoliteness and livestock possession (85.00 % and 68.33 %) respectively. The major constraints faced by the respondents were lack of awareness about latest technologies, scarcity of grazing land and water in dairy farming and lack of veterinary extension services at field level.
