A sample size of 90 Pulikulam cattle rearers (45 rearers from each district) who were actively involved in Pulikulam cattle rearing were selected randomly for the study. A well-structured, pre-tested interview schedule was used for the primary data collection for this study. Findings indicated that majority (55.56 per cent) of the respondents was landless farmers and 42.22 per cent of the respondents belonged to old age category. Majority (40.00 per cent) of the respondents were educated up to primary level of education. Majority (82.22 per cent) of the respondents had Animal Husbandry as main occupation. Nearly one-fifth (56.67 per cent) of the respondents had high level (above 20 years) of experience in Pulikulam cattle rearing. One-half (51.11 per cent) of the respondents had medium level of contact with extension agency with 56.67 percent of the respondents had low level of mass media exposure. Majority (57.78 per cent) of the respondents had high level of economic motivation.
