Abstract:
The present study was undertaken with an aim to evaluate the impact of prophylactic vaccination on profitability of sheep farming in District Bandipora. Accordingly, a questionnaire based survey was conducted in Bandipora district of Kashmir Valley. Overall 60 farmers with overall sheep heads and average flock size of 2805 and 46.97±2.43, respectively were interviewed by face to face contact method. The data were classified into vaccinated and unvaccinated groups for statistical analysis. The statistical analysis was carried by SPSS statistical package using unpaired t-test to compare means. The mortality, morbidity and medicinal costs invested for treatment of sheep were significantly (P<0.01) higher in unvaccinated group than vaccinated group. The mortality, morbidity and medicinal costs invested for treatment of sheep in unvaccinated group were 12.25±1.32%, 26.43±2.66% and 35.61±3.16 Rupees, respectively.
