The present study was carried out to find out constraints faced by the dairy farmers involved in dairy farming. The study was conducted in Ferozepur and Tarn Taran districts of western plain zone of Punjab in the six selected village clusters. Total sample size of 150 dairy farmers was selected for the study. Garrett’s ranking technique was used to prioritize the different constraints in terms of their mean score. The study revealed that “lack of knowledge about schemes of A.H department (65.94)”, “lack of knowledge about value addition of milk and its products (67.36)”, “low economic gain from dairy enterprise (69.77)”, “difficulty in marketing of milk and milk products (63.42)”, “lack of know about mobile applications related to dairy farming practices” (69.51) were perceived as major constraints by dairy farmers. Hence, there is a need to resolve these constraints immediately for betterment and improving the socio-economic status of dairy farmers.
