The present study was conducted in Dehradun and Haridwar districts of Uttrakhand. A total of 180 unmarried young rural women were identified as respondents and classified into four quartiles depending upon their time invested in livestock rearing activities. On basis of cumulative square root frequency of family income, the respondents were divided into low, medium and high income categories. The family labour participation showed that the females were more actively involved in animal husbandry activities followed by males and children. Almost 4.67 hours are required on daily basis for livestock activities. It generated about 132.80, 196.39, and 19.24 man-days of employment respectively for males, females and children to a total of 348.44 man-days.
