Abstract:

Farm women play an important role in managing different kinds of livestock production operations. However, the degree of their participation in various livestock production activities is governed by the socio-cultural and economic factors. Women in some settings are faced with discrimination and are less accessible to extension services and appropriate technology. There is poor awareness regarding ways of improving livestock productivity to improve livelihoods. Further, lack of training is also identified as factor militating against women farmers’ efficiency and effectiveness. This paper identifies training needs of farm women in livestock production. The study was conducted in Bundi district of Rajasthan. A multi-stage sampling design was used to select the sample households. A sample of 250 farm women was selected based on random sampling procedure. The selected respondents were interviewed personally with the help of a well-structured and pre-tested interview schedule. Study revealed that women perform virtually all livestock production related operations, although they are less involved in marketing of livestock products; construction of livestock houses. The level of knowledge of women farmers was low in breeding and reproduction management, health management, livestock waste management. Majority of respondent farm women required intensive training on breeding and reproduction management, health management practices, livestock waste management, credit source and credit procurement procedure, insurance, disaster relief and risk management.
