India is a major leader in milk production but its potential is not fully explored to the extent. Several constraints are perceived and faced by dairy farmers during adoption of recommended dairy management practices. The aim of this study was to evaluate constraints faced by dairy farmers in co-operative. Present study was undertaken in Shivamrut Dudh Utpadak Sahakari Sangh Maryadit, Akluj dist. Solapur of Maharashtra. The data were collected from 200 dairy farmers randomly selected from 10 villages through interview schedule, analyzed and results were interpreted. Major constraints recorded were ticks and other ectoparasites present in animal shed, milk production of local breeds is very low, dairy animals require large quantity of feed , higher cost of concentrate and cross bred animals are more prone to diseases,. All these constraints may lay significant impact on milk production in terms of quality and quantity. For overall development of dairy sector in this area dissemination of knowledge, transfer of technology and role of dairy cooperatives would be crucial.
