Abstract:

The aim of this study was to study the Socio-economic traits influencing the income of farm women earning livelihood through livestock enterprises in Goalpara district of Assam. Ten tribal dominated villages and ten non-tribal dominated villages were selected at random basis in 20 selected villages. Twenty percent of  farm women  who had at least one milch cattle, and/or two small animals like sheep, goat or pig and/or 20 numbers of poultry (duck or fowl) were selected at random from each of the tribal and non-tribal dominated villages to make the sample size 350 (50% from each of tribal and non-tribal groups). It was found that tribal women’s education and their mass media exposure had positive significant relationship with egg production. These two variables were the motivating factors for augmenting egg production. The non-tribal women’s land holding and knowledge in improved animal husbandry exhibited positive significant relation with egg production. Pooled data revealed that participation in ‘decision making in livestock management and marketing’ had significant positive relation with egg production. It was concluded that the tribal women’s level of family education, extension contact, and their level of participation in decision making in livestock management were positively correlated with income from livestock. Similarly in non-tribal women mass media exposure, extension contact and knowledge in improved animal husbandry had positive correlation with income from livestock enterprise.
