Abstract

The main objective of the present study is to study and examine the socio-economic status of livestock keepers, and secondly to compare the indigenous and exotic breeds of livestock on the basis of their number found in the study area and their productivity. We carried out this study in Shirol Tahsil of Kolhapur District, Maharashtra, India. For this study, we selected 30 villages from Shirol Tahsil. We selected 10 livestock keepers from each village randomly. Therefore the total 300 livestock keepers were selected in the study. We used questionnaires to collect data from livestock keepers. This study revealed that many livestock keepers have a low literacy level and small landholding. Also, the livestock keepers reared exotic breeds because exotic breeds have high productivity over the indigenous breeds.
