The present study was conducted during 2016-17 to assess the work stress perceived by field veterinary functionaries (Sub-Divisional Officers, Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Livestock Development Assistants) of Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Haryana (DAH&D). An ex-post facto research design was employed for the study. The study was restricted to 168 field veterinary functionaries of DAH&D, selected from 4 districts i.e. Hisar, Karnal, Kurukshetra and Mahendergarh across Haryana. Data collection was done by using the questionnaire method. Majority of the respondents (56.55%) were in medium level of work stress category followed by 30.36 percent and 13.10 per cent were in low and high level of work stress categories respectively. The work stress facets mean score shows, role ambiguity (2.21), constraint of change and rules regulations (2.18) and work overload (2.15) were the most prioritized stressors followed by role conflict (2.14), lack of cohesiveness among staff (2.13), job requirement-capability mismatch (2.13) and work difficulty (2.08). The result reveals that there was no clarity about the roles of the field professionals in the department and overburdened to perform developmental works, reports making and clerical work other than their core duties of providing livestock services to the farmers of the state.
