Abstract:
The present analysis was carried out in the state of Tamil Nadu to assess the knowledge level of Multipurpose Artificial Insemination Technician for Rural India (MAITRI) trainees regarding livestock rearing practices and veterinary services. The analysis was done amongst 53 trainees who were attended one month training programme on various theoretical and practical aspects of livestock rearing and veterinary services at Veterinary College and Research Institute, Orathanadu during the year 2018-2019. A well structured interview schedule was prepared and collected data to find out the difference in their knowledge level both prior and after the training programme. The collected data was analysed by using percentage analysis and the findings expressed that more than 98.48 per cent of the trainees acquired high level of knowledge on feeding management and general management of livestock followed by 97.3 per cent of them gained high level knowledge on reproductive and breeding management of livestock after completion of the training programme compared to before training on the above aspects. Further, 96.58 & 95.14 per cent of the MAITRIs acquired high level of knowledge on general aspects of MAITRI training programme and disease management of livestock respectively. It concludes significant difference in knowledge of trainees due to the training programme.
