Abstract:
The present study was conducted on 540 dairy farmers belonging to all the six different agro-climatic zones of Punjab by personal interview technique to assess Reproductive disorder remedial practice adoption (RDRPA) for curing infertility in dairy animals. The adoption rate was more for farmers running large dairy units followed by those running medium dairy units, then small dairy units. Unawareness and cost factor played a significant role in non-adoption. Adoption of remedial practices such as appropriate body weight, balanced diet feeding, comfortable housing, deworming, insemination by trained person significantly differ according to size of dairy units. There was significantly difference in mean RDRPA score of farmers running small, medium and large dairy units at P<0.05. The RDRPA level of farmers running small dairy units was low, while it was medium for those running medium and large dairy units and for overall dairy farmers of Punjab. The present study stresses formulation of farmer friendly, cost effective, easily understandable technologies for enhancing the adoption level.
