Abstract:

Assessing information needs and their prioritization is an important pre-requisite in development of IT-enabled dairy advisory system for stakeholders, including Pashusakhis. Pashusakhi model is a community-led livestock extension service. The role of Pashusakhi centres around counselling services for disease prevention and sharing of good management practices among the farmers. Thus, it raised the need for developing IT-enabled dairy advisory system for Pashusakhis in order to update their technical knowledge and skill, with self-paced learning, revising and resolving queries by their own. Assessment of information needs on dairying expressed by Pashusakhis prioritized, animal health and care (Weighted Mean Score - 2.45) as the most needed area, followed by general management practices (2.36), feeding management (2.35), breeding management (2.33), marketing management (2.33) and housing management (2.28).
