Four blocks were randomly selected using simple lottery method. The selected blocks were Kastigarh, Bhagwah, Marmat and Ghat. After preparing a comprehensive list of villages of the selected blocks, two villages were selected randomly from each of the four selected blocks. Thereafter, fifteen respondents were selected randomly from each village. Thus a total 120 respondents were selected in all as the sample. Data was collected through well structured, personal interview from the respondents either at their farm or home after proper testing of schedule and using appropriate scales. The final schedule was divided into four broad areas namely management, feeding, breeding and health care for evaluation of adoption in respective sections. Data was then tabulated, analyzed and inferences were drawn in the light of set objectives after application of proper statistics, using various computer software’s. The study revealed that overall extent of adoption of improved animal husbandry practices in the study area was found to be only about 55.43%. Majority of the respondents (66%) had medium level of adoption whereas 26% had high and 8 %low level of adoption regarding improved animal husbandry practices.
