Abstract:
The study was conducted in Jammu district of Jammu and Kashmir state to assess the knowledge level of Bakarwal tribe regarding sheep and goat rearing practices. Multistage random sampling plan was followed for the selection of ultimate respondents. The data was collected from 120 Bakarwal respondents belonging to Marh, Satwari, Bhalwal and Dansal blocks of Jammu district through well structured interview schedule, from the respondents either at their farm or home after proper testing of schedule and using appropriate scales. The findings of the study revealed that 63.33 percent of the respondents had medium knowledge level whereas only 25 percent of the respondents had low knowledge level regarding sheep and goat rearing practices. Extent of knowledge of sheep and goat rearing practices, viz, management, feeding, breeding and health care practices were found to be 51.82 percent, 69.28 percent, 65. 75 percent and 52.35 percent respectively. Knowledge of the respondents regarding feeding practices was high; whereas it was low in management practice. Further correlation analysis reveals that land holding (r =0.188*), cultural attributes and relationship with other community (r =0.244**) and ownership (r =0.253**) had a significant and positive correlation with the knowledge level. On the other hand age (r =0.015), education (r =0.159), herd size (r =0.157), total annual income (r =0.078) and marketing pattern (r =0.131) were positively but insignificantly associated with the knowledge level regarding sheep and goat rearing practices.
