Abstract:

The present study was undertaken with an objective to assess the impact of skill up gradation training on knowledge gain and adoption of technologies in Sheep and Goat rearing. Six trainings were organized by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bagalkote during the year 2018-19 and 2019-20. The participants were farmers, farm women and youths who have interest in sheep and goat rearing as self-employment. Different aspects of sheep and goat rearing in the context to selection of suitable breeds, Animal shelter, Feed and fodder and Animal Health were imparted to a total number of 173 trainees in six trainings. The impact of the training was assessed by pre and post evaluation testing in terms of improvement in knowledge for different parameters. It was observed that 53.65, 51.74, 49.13 and 61.66 per cent of the trainees gained knowledge on types of different breeds of sheep and goats, sheep and goat shelter, Feed and fodder and Animal Health maintenance after training. Sixty three per cent (109 trainees) of them have adopted the technologies learnt in the training by newly starting sheep and goat enterprises or expanding the existing unit and in that 47.4 percent started with ram fattening. It may therefore, be concluded that trainees succeeded in acquiring knowledge after exposure to training and also adopting technologies on sheep and goat rearing.
