Abstract:
Present study was designed with an objective to assess the Impact of scientific method of goat management training on Knowledge Gain and Adoption of Technologies in arid region. This study was conducted in seven villages adjoining Pokaran region of Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan among rural goat farmers were participated in KVK’s training programme. Collection of data regarding gain in knowledge, adopted level about improved livestock technologies in scientific goat rearing, supplementation of minerals mixture and their various aspects of feeding management were recorded before and after training. Result revealed that the rural goat owners had gained highest knowledge in goat protection measures during heat wave 60.71%, 58.57% in protection of goat from cold wave, 56.42% in care and management during pregnancy, 52.14% in government sponsored schemes for subsidy, 47.14% in scientific feeding management, 45.71 % in vaccination schedule, 44.28 % in endo and external parasite of goat, % 42.85 in stall feeding, 41.42 % in goat farm construction and space requirement, 39.28% in disease symptoms, 38.92% in improved breeds, 37.14 % in mineral mixture, 36.42% in online goat business, 34.28% in Steaming Up, 32.14% in flushing and 22.85% in goat farm registration in MSME respectively. Study showed that none of the farmers were adopted online goat business, steaming up, flushing, goat farm registration in MSME and very few farmers were known the scientific method of goat rearing and feeding before acquiring training whereas, after attending training programme they were highest adopted about 35.30% in goat protection measures during heat wave followed by 31.0 % in protection of goat from cold wave, 20.5 % in government sponsored schemes for subsidy, 18.30% in edible Planting materials as green fodder, 18.20 % in endo and external parasite of goat, 11.50 % in care and management practices during pregnancy, 10.30 % in disease symptoms, 8.40% in vaccination schedule, 7.50% in scientific feeding management, 6.10% in steaming up, 5.50 % in flushing, 5.50% in goat farm construction and space requirement, 4.70% in deworming and 1.1 % in goat farm registration in MSME respectively. The overall adoption percentage by the farmers which indicated that training had a significant impact in uptake of improved technologies. It may be concluded that trainees succeeded in acquiring knowledge after exposure to training and also adopting technologies on scientific methods of goat rearing.
