The majority of the respondents from J&K were postgraduate scholars (70.82%) followed by the professionals in the Animal Husbandry (26.68%) and the Agriculture (2.50%) departments. The most respondents from J&K were male (54.25%) and 25-35 years old (71.50%). The majority ate meat (65.75%) with an average frequency of twice a week (40.50%). While most of the respondents from J&K were scholars (70.82%) and had no annual income, the majority of the professionals (82.02%) revealed an annual income of 6-12 lakhs. Among the meat scientists, 70% of the respondents were male and 30% were females. The majority of the scientists ate red meat (80%) followed by white meat (6.0%) whereas 14% of the respondents were vegetarians. Among the scientists, 34% consumed meat twice a week whereas 22% consumed thrice a week. Among the respondents from J&K, 17% supported lab-grown meat and chose it as the preferred meat whereas the majority (81.25%) preferred conventional meat.
