Abstract:
The study was undertaken to document the existing sheep management practices in Bidar district of North Karnataka, India. The management practices were recorded by means of personal interview using a structured schedule and a multistage stratified sampling procedure. A total of 150 respondents from Bidar district formed the study group. A large proportion of the shepherds had closed (96.7%) and kutcha type shed and 72.0% farmers used GI sheet roofing with 57.2% farmers using cement pole supports. The average height, length and width of the shed was 8.28, 20.17 and 12.35 feet, respectively. All the farmers practiced grazing in all seasons with migration less than 50 km distance. Deworming and vaccination were the major health practices followed by shepherds. Most of them sold their male lambs at the age of about 6-12 months.
