Abstract:

An exploratory study was conducted to measure attitude of livestock farmers towards Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) used in extension services as a source of information livery in Rajasthan, India. A total of 120 respondents were randomly selected for the study. Data were collected through structured interview schedule and analysed through different statistical tools. The study revealed that majority of livestock farmers had favourable attitude (73.33%) towards dissemination of information through different ICT tools in livestock sector followed by 15.83 per cent with more favourable attitude and 10.83 per cent with less favourable attitude. Age, family size, land holding, herd size, extension contact and social participation had positive and non-significant relationship with attitude of livestock farmers towards ICTs, while experience in livestock farming had negative and non-significant relationship. Education, mass media exposure and annual gross income had positive and significant relationship with attitude of livestock farmers towards ICTs.
