Analysis of extent of participation of farmers and their families in brooder management activities of commercial poultry farm
A study was conducted at the Namakkal district in Tamil Nadu to understand the extent of participation of poultry farmers and their families in brooder management and the technical inventories associated with it. A sample of 42 poultry farmers was surveyed using an interview schedule and data were analysed using appropriate statistical tools. The results revealed that the major level of participation was from the family head followed by his wife and labour. The role of head could be more as the activities needs constant supervision. The technical inventory for the brooder activities were available for all brooder activities. Extension personnel and Technology developers felt that the inventories were sufficient. While for the farmers it was not so, indicating that study has to be done to understand the reason for the gap developed between the farmers and extension personnel and technology developers.
