Three villages were selected from each block and ten respondents randomly selected from each village Total of 120. The purpose of this study was to analyze the status of farm mechanization under the animal farming system, availability of draught animal population, identification of animal drawn and other farm implements and their utilization for agricultural production. The required data of the study were collected with the help of a detailed proforma which was developed prior to survey, after consulting the literature available as suggested by the different researchers. It was found that the Northern hills cover about 21% of the total geographical area and also covers about 21% of the total draught animal population. Average draught animal power in Northern hills was found that 0.37 kW/ha. Northern hills have the highest utilization of animal power was 284 h/ha. The study reveals that the majority of the respondents about 96 per cent used country plough as a primary tillage implement, 99 per cent used wooden plank as a secondary tillage implement in the zone. In case of traditional sowing methods majority of 98 per cent used broadcasting method for sowing and only 2 per cent of the respondents used seed drill as improved seeding implements.
