Dairying, Constraints, Rural women.
Dairy and rural women complement each other. They are the backbone of agriculture livestock production system. Unlike income generated from crop production, which is seasonal in a state like Rajasthan, dairying is a source of a stable income bringing in cash on a daily basis and providing livelihoods security. And as women are the ones engaged in dairying activities, it becomes imperative to analyze and study the constraints they face. Thus, the present paper aims to highlight the constraints faced by of rural women in dairying. The study was conducted in Lunkaransar Panchayat Samiti of Bikaner district, a major milk producing district in Rajasthan on 100 rural women. Study of the major constraints faced by the respondents revealed that economic constraints (70.95 MPS) were perceived most followed by technical constraint (62.80), infrastructural (62.33) and family/personal constraints (48.83).
