Abstract: Indigenous technical knowledge plays an important role in traditional dairy farming. In due course, there is danger of extinction of this knowledge. It is of paramount importance to document these practices and to assess their validity. Hence an attempt was made to document the prevailing ITK’s among the 10 dairy cattle owners each from four districts viz., Tirunelveli, Namakkal, Vellore and Thiruppur districts and also comparing the present ITKs with the Modern Veterinary drugs for Anestrum. A sample of 40 farmers was interviewed through structured interview schedule to document the ITK’s used for controlling Anaestrum. The five ITKs for the anaestrum condition were subjected to validation test through the QuIK (Quantification Indigenous Technical Knowledge) method. All the ITKs were found to be effective against anaestrum. However, these were perceived to be comparatively less effective than the Modern Veterinary Drug (MVD) in numbers of animals cured and quickness of healing. The Indigenous Practices were perceived better than MVD in respect of their availability, lesser side effects, and lower cost.
