Abstract:
The objective of the study was to develop and standardize a reliable and valid scale to assess the attitudes of goat farmers towards implementing artificial insemination (AI) in goat breeding system. A summated rating scale based on Likert (1932) method was developed through collection of items, relevancy test, item analysis, reliability and validity. Based on “t” value (>1.75), fourteen (14) statements were finally selected to constitute the attitude scale. Reliability of the scale was calculated by using split half method and the entire scale reliability coefficient was found to be 0.85. Furthermore, a high Content Validity Index (CVI) of 0.95 demonstrated that, the statements on the scale accurately measured what it was intended to measure. Therefore, researchers can use the scale in future for measuring the attitude of other livestock farmers in similar kind of studies.
