Abstract
Adoption of scientific health technologies is one of the important pre-requisites to improve the quality and production performance of the goat husbandry. The constraints which hinder the goat farmers to adopt recommended scientific health technologies were assessed in different agro-climatic zones of Bihar by selecting two districts from each zone, with the sample size of 240 farmers (80 from each zone). Among economic constraints, high cost of medicine was ranked first with the total score of 138 by farmers of zone I followed by farmers of zone III (score-137) and farmers of zone II (score-133). Among social constraints, lack of preventive health management was ranked first with the total score of 119 by farmers of zone II followed by farmers of zone III (score118) and farmers of zone I (score-116). Among technological constraints lack of knowledge and importance of vaccination was ranked first with the total score of 119 by farmers of zone III followed by farmers of zone II (score-110). Door step availability of health care facility and regular organisation of health camp at village level may help to adopt goat health technologies as suggested by the farmers.
