Abstract:

A study in Hisar district of Haryana was conducted during 2014-15 to assess the impact of scientific dairy farming training on knowledge level of dairy farmers about management practices on randomly selected 60 participant and 60 non-participant respondents. Data were collected through personal interview with the help of pretested structured interview schedule from two villages during 2014-15. The study reveals that majority (53.33%) of participant and non-participant dairy farmers had medium level of knowledge about management practices of scientific dairy husbandry practices. However, the participant farmers had higher knowledge of management practices in comparison to non-participants. All the participant and non-participant farmers knew about height of animal shed and Veterinarian’s help during difficult calving (100%) followed by ‘best type of housing for rearing’, ‘time of deworming’, ‘stop milking before next parturition’, ‘cleanliness of animal shed’ and ‘correct method of milking’. The respondents were least know about weaning practice, removal of naval cord and age of castration of calf were least known. Farming experience was found to have negative and significant correlation with knowledge about management practices at 5 per cent level of significance while extension contact, economic motivation, attitude toward dairy farming and market orientation were found to have positive and significant correlation with knowledge of farmers at 1 per cent level of significance.
