The study was conducted over 93 beneficiaries in Lucknow Mandal of Uttar Pradesh under Mini Kamdhenu Dairy Scheme (MKDS) to find out constraints and suggestions faced by the beneficiaries. The constraints were categorised as economic constraints, infrastructural, technical and production constraints. The constraints were measured with the help of pre-tested interview schedule on three point continuum viz., Not serious, Serious, Most Serious with 1, 2 and 3 assigned score given respectively. After that total score, and mean score was calculated, on the basis of mean score constraints were ranked. Suggestions given by MKDS beneficiaries on open-ended interview schedule were recorded and then frequency, percentage were calculated from the documented suggestions. 48.38 per cent beneficiaries of MKDS said low price of milk was most serious constraint under the head of economic constraints, poor supply of quality semen (53.76%), lack of knowledge on improved practices (66.67%) beneficiaries were considered as most serious constraints.
