Abstract:
The present study was conducted in Punjab state by randomly selecting 240 goat farmers belonging to six different agro-climatic zones (40 farmers from each zone) to assess their knowledge level about housing practices. The personal interview schedule technique was followed. Knowledge about type of housing, space requirements, separate shed, location & orientation of shed, cleaning of shed, use of disinfectants for cleaning of shed, provision of ventilation appropriate height of shed and proper drainage & slope of floors was possessed by 33.75%, 17.92%, 37.08%, 35.83%, 56.25%, 34.58%, 48.33%, 39.17% and 25.83% respectively in Punjab. In Punjab, the mean awareness about housing practices in goat farmers was 36.53%. The housing knowledge score of goat farmers was significantly different (P< 0.05) between different agro-climatic zones of Punjab, indicating necessity of assessing knowledge first before organizing extension activity. The mean housing knowledge level was medium in Punjab. So, more knowledge enrichment campaigns regarding housing management of goats are the need of hour.
