Urban and peri-urban dairy production system is growing at a faster rate in in response to the fast growing demand for milk and milk products. The prospectus of this production system become more favorable as it provides opportunity to develop their own milk industries, primarily through small scale production, which will have a major impact on different levels of cash income and the trend continue to feed the growing population by adopting new dairy related practices. Therefore the efforts are made to assess the knowledge level and the factors effecting the dairy production in urban and peri-urban areas. This study was conducted in purposively selected Agra Division of Uttar Pradesh in 120 respondents. A pretested knowledge test was administered and knowledge level of respondent was measured. The knowledge of urban and peri-urban from different aspects of feeding is (51.18 percent) and (43.78 percent).The respondents possess (53.13 percent) and (39.69 percent) of knowledge about the breeding practices in urban and peri-urban areas. The knowledge level of the urban respondents is highest in feeding followed by peri-urban and lowest in health care management due to lack of inadequate extension and training services. The efforts should be made to organize the setup of the milk market to provide remunerative milk prices to the dairy owner and financial agencies should provide loan amount to dairy farmers to establish dairy farms. To enhance knowledge of farmers the Government and private agencies should conduct training on scientific dairy farming from time to time.
