Abstract:
In Rajasthan, India, an exploratory study was done to assess the attitudes of livestock farmers concerning the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as a source of support for extension services. For the study, a total of 120 respondents were chosen at random. Data were gathered using a systematic interviewing schedule, and several statistical methods were used for analysis. The study found that the majority of livestock farmers (73.33%) had a favourable attitude toward the distribution of information through various ICT tools in the livestock sector, with 15.83 per cent having a more favourable attitude and 10.83 per cent having a less favourable attitude. Age, family size, land ownership, herd size, contact with extension agents and social involvement all had positive but insignificant relationships with livestock farmers' attitudes toward ICTs. In contrast, experience in the industry had a negative but non-significant relationship. The attitudes of livestock farmers toward ICTs were positively and significantly correlated with education, exposure to the mass media and annual gross income.
