Factors affecting the involvement of rural women in dairy farming
Dairy farming is one activity which can play a pivotal role in making rural women financially empowered. Rural women have been involved in dairy farming since ages. This activity can give financial benefits throughout the year. To plan developmental programmes for rural women in this field, it becomes imperative to understand the factors affecting the involvement of rural women in dairy farming. It was with this view that the study was undertaken. Research methodology included the application of coefficient of correlation and multiple regression. It was found that type of family, size of family, number of children, caste and innovation proneness were consistently, strongly and negatively affecting all the four activities under consideration. The independent variables of caste in fodder harvesting, collection and transportation, education and family size in fodder chaffing, innovation proneness in distribution of fodder and number of children in shed cleaning, caused significant variations in the involvement of rural women in these dairy farming activities.
