Vol 8(9), 143-150

The present study was conducted on 160 dairy farmers (42 small, 86 medium and 32 large farmers) randomly selected from twelve villages of two districts viz. Hisar and Jind of Haryana to assess the perceived training needs about animal breeding practices and also to analyze their relationship with independent variables. The data were collected through pre-structured interview schedule developed for this purpose by holding personal interview with the dairy farmers during 2014-15. The study reveals that majority of the dairy farmers perceived moderate level of training needs followed by high and low level of training needs about animal breeding practices. Training needs about green fodder availability throughout year-cycle and feeding and care of pregnant buffalo were the most and least important perceived training needs regarding animal breeding practices, respectively. Further correlation analysis reveals that age of the respondents had positively and significantly correlation whereas educational qualification, size of landholding, annual income, caste, dairy farming experience, extension contact, social participation, mass media exposure, economic motivation, scientific orientation, attitude towards dairy farming and market orientation exhibited their negative and significant role in case of perceived training needs of dairy farmers. Regression analysis reveals that all the thirteen antecedent variables were accounted for 71 percent of variation towards perceived training needs of dairy farmers about breeding practices.
