Abstract:

The awareness of the dairy farmers about causes and control measures of a disease helps in avoiding the losses due to that disease. A study was undertaken to determine the awareness status of dairy farmers about various causes and control and preventive measures of abortion in dairy animals. Pre-structured and pre-tested interview schedule was presented to one hundred and twenty respondents from Punjab, who had visited GADVASU, Ludhiana. The questionnaire had fifty questions, each of one mark, twenty five related to various causes of abortion and rests were related to control and preventive measures. The score of the respondents about various causes of abortion varied from 3 to 20 with a mean score of 12.06 ± 0.485 (S.E.) out of 25, while the score of the respondents about management, control and preventive measures of abortion varied from 4 to 20 with a mean score of 13.54 ± 0.451 (S.E.). The total score of the respondents about all aspects of abortion varied from 10 to 38 (Out of 50) with a mean score of 25.61 ± 0.857 (S.E.). The results revealed that farmers had low awareness about various aspects i.e. causes, management, control and preventive measures of abortion in dairy animals. However, the awareness level was significantly positively correlated with education level, herd size and training of the farmers. So, there is need to create awareness amongst dairy farmers about various causes, control and preventive measures through various awareness programmes to prevent abortion in dairy animals. This will help them to modify their rearing practices accordingly and avoid potential losses occurring due to it.
