Abstract:

The present study was conducted in different districts of Punjab. 250 respondents were randomly selected and were interviewed personally the help of pretested interview schedule. Most of the farmers were middle aged and young. The education level of most of the farmers was more than high school. Most of the dairy farmers (52%) were medium dairy farmers followed by small dairy farmers (28%), large dairy farmers (12%) and very large dairy farmers (8%). Herd Size had a significant difference (P<0.05) on incidence of diseases like mastitis, ketosis and milk fever. It was found that medium farms (10-29) were significantly (P<0.05) affected by incidence of diseases like mastitis, ketosis and milk fever. Incidence of metritis (30.36%) was found to be less for farmers who undertook training, indicating the significant relationship (P<0.05) between training and metritis occurrence. Education vary significantly with control of mastitis and metritis (P<0.05), indicating its role in control of mastitis and metritis. So, this study focuses on role of training and education in enhancing awareness level of dairy farmers about control of various transitional diseases.
