Abstract:
The present study aimed at identifying the constraints faced by both men and women farmers involved in livestock production in Karnataka. An exploratory research design was adopted for the study. Twenty men farmers and twenty women farmers were selected each from Bengaluru, Davangere and Belagavi district of Karnataka, thus a total of 120 farmers were selected and interviewed. The result from the study revealed that the constraints faced by majority of women farmers were transportation of fodder (75.00%) and dominance by men in taking decision (73.00%). In case of men farmers lack of time to participate in social activities (77.00%) and lack of training facilities on livestock management (50.00%) were major constraints. In India, livestock production is largely in the hands of women. Besides considerable involvement and contribution of women, considerable gender inequalities do exist in Indian villages. Therefore, efforts are needed to increase the capacity of women to meet their strategic needs.
