Data were collected through interview from 614 farmers who participated in dairy farming trainings organized by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Hanumangarh (Rajasthan) from 2007 to 2010. It was observed that average adoption rate was 52.3% and unemployed rural youths (55%) showed keen interest in dairy farming. The knowledge level of the respondent before and after training for cattle breeding, feeding, health care and management was 29.31, 46.41, 30.61, 57.49 and 71.33, 86.32, 68.72 and 89.90 per cent, respectively. Milk yield was increased with decrease in anoestrus cases and calf mortality which in turn fetched more profits to farmers.
