Abstract: The present study was conducted purposively in Banda district of Uttar Pradesh as this district has a sizeable proportion of livestock farmers. Sixteen villages were selected randomly from district for the present study. From each village ten volunteer farmers were selected randomly. Total 160 interested livestock owners were selected on the basis of Proportionate Random Sampling (PRS) method. The results were calculated on the basis of weighted score for each of the thrust area identified (feeding, management, breeding and health care practices) for the training. The findings of the study revealed that ‘management practices’ was the most important area and ranked first by the respondents for the purpose of training (mean weighted score 2.138) followed by the area of ‘health care (2.103), breeding practices (2.095), and ‘feeding practices’ (mean weighted score 2.066), respectively. Therefore, realistic planning for education and training need to be done to enhance the skill and adaptation of better scientific practices for livestock farmers. Simultaneously, it can also be suggested that the livestock owners should be acquainted with improved A.H. practices in general with respect to management and health care practices in particular through appropriate extension programmes (training, awareness campaign, exhibitions, demonstration etc) to obtain more output from their livestock.
