Abstract:

The use of antibiotics for preventive purpose and symptom relief are common in India. One third (67%) of the global increase in antibiotic consumption in livestock animals over 2010-2030, will be evident in Low and Middle Income Countries like India (Van Boeckel et al., 2015). Reinforcing the education and excellence among stakeholders about antibiotic conservation practices, issue of antibiotic resistance and the One Health approach can play crucial role in leading the resistance from farm-to-fork (OIE, 2016). In the study, two districts namely Karnal and Kurukshetra were purposively selected from Eastern zone of Haryana state. In which, 4 villages from each district were selected randomly. From each village 21 farmers were randomly selected through random stratified sampling methods constituting the total respondents to 168.Mean, standard deviation, frequency and cumulative square root frequency were statistical tools to be used. The educational campaigns increase awareness about the resistance and reinforcing the education and fostering the excellence among stakeholders about antibiotic conservation practices is needed. The large farmers performed judicious use of antibiotics, higher incomes helped them to adopt better management practices at their farms. A well-structured target segmentation strategy to percolate the policies for small, medium and large dairy farmers can be designed by considering the socio-economic conditions.
