P Reeja George, Sreelakshmi CM and Demian C Johnson
The Kasargod dwarf cattle are a native breed of cattle found in Kasargod state of Kerala. Manjeswaram block of Kasargod district of Kerala was selected for the study, from which Badiyadka and Enmagaje panchayats were selected by the procedure of simple random sampling. A list of farmers rearing Kasargod cattle in both these panchayats was prepared in consultation with local veterinarians, progressive farmers and panchayat officials. Simple random sampling was then used to select 60 farmers rearing Kasargod cattle. Among the various factor categories of perceived strengths of Kasaragod cattle keeping, the production system features were perceived as most important. Animal features which centered on the productive and functional attributes of the Kasaragod cattle were the second most important factor category in this regard. Marketing system features were the least important factor category within the strengths of the system.
