Abstract:

A vigilant study of the socioeconomic aspects of livestock farmers is a prerequisite for the appropriate design and successful execution of Governments' developmental programmes. The present study was conducted to assess the socio-economic status and credibility of various extension activities among the livestock farmers. For this, primary data collected through structured interview schedule using a sample size of 150 respondents from Jalandhar district of Punjab. Results of the study revealed that majority of the farmers belong to middle age (62.00 %) group, medium size(65.30 %) of family, medium size(67.30 %) of livestock holding, medium range(50.70%) of income group and low risk orientation (45.30%). Most of the respondents (92.70%) have their strong linkage with Panchayat members and participation in various extension activities was found highest (19.10%) among young farmers. Majority of the farmers participated in Kisanmelas (68.70 %) albeit relative credibility index found highest for demonstration activity. Hence efforts should be undertaken by the Government, Veterinary Universities and other extension agencies in providing information on improved livestock farming practices and more emphasis should be given on learning by doing, result oriented extension activities and strong farmer-extension-research-linkages so that farmers could bring about change in their living standard and can improve their socio-economic status.
