Majorities 52.50 per cent were in old age group, 62.50 per cent had small land holding and 40.00 per cent belonged to small size family. Majority 80 per cent respondents got conceived their cows by A.I. 57.5 per cent respondents inseminate their cows at an early heat stage and 85per cent cattle keepers followed pregnancy diagnosis.
