Abstract:
The present study was conducted on 160 dairy farmers selected from 12 villages of Hisar and Jind districts of Haryana to assess the level of perceived training need regarding animal management practices among dairy farmers. The data were collected through pre-tested structured interview schedule by holding personal interview with the dairy farmers during 2014-15. The study reveals that majority of the respondents possessed medium level of perceived training need regarding animal management practices followed by high and low level. It was found that the items namely, green fodder management-sowing harvesting, storage, etc (in small and medium category) and knowledge about High Yielding Varieties of fodder (in case of large category) were either most or 2nd most important perceived training need areas regarding management practices. Further result shows that only age of the farmers was positively and significantly correlated, while all other variables, namely educational qualification, size of land holding, annual income, caste, dairy farming experience, extension contact, social participation, mass media exposure, economic motivation, scientific orientation, attitude towards dairy farming and market orientation were found to have negative and significant relationship at 1 percent level of significance with perceived training needs in management practices. The regression analysis explicates that all the significant variables exhibited negative value of ‘t’ for ‘b’, out of which, age and educational qualification of respondents were at 5 percent level while extension contact and market orientation were found to have negative and significant at 1 percent level of probability. All the thirteen variables jointly explained 78.6 percent of variation towards the perceived training needs of dairy farmers in animal management practice.
