Abstract

The present study was carried out to analyse the constraints faced in livestock services delivered by various agencies among livestock owners in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh. The study was conducted in eight villages of four blocks of Mathura district by personally interviewing 160 livestock owners. Majority of the beneficiaries found non-availability of land for green fodder cultivation (2.7) was most important constraint followed by extension in livestock services (2.6) and high cost of vaccines and medicines (2.5).  Distant location of veterinary hospital (2.4), lack of knowledge and scientific practices (2.1) and less availability of qualified veterinarian/doctors (1.9) were also constraints ranked fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.  Whereas non-beneficiaries respondents found extension in livestock services (2.8), non-availability of land for green fodder cultivation (2.8) and Lack of knowledge and scientific practices (2.7) were major constraints.
