The prime objectives of study were to find out the constraints faced by the livestock farmers in availing the benefits of the feed and fodder development programmes and reasons for not availing the benefits. All the feed and fodder development programmes implemented in study districts for the period 2007-2016 were considered for the study. The programmes are; Fodder minikits distribution, Trainings and demonstrations on feed and fodder, azolla and silage making, Chaff cutter distribution and Fodder banks and Goshala
s (Cow shelters). Study conducted followed ex-post facto
research design and carried out in 2016-17. Totally 120 livestock farmers (60 beneficairy and 60 non-beneficiary farmers were contacted for data collection from Belagavi, Baglkote and Gadag districts of North Karnataka. Among the constraints, many procedures to attend to avail benefits ranked as top constraint with the mean garret score of 60.36. This was followed by inadequate support received from the department and slow response from government department while availing benefits ranked 2nd
with the mean garret score of 59.85 and lack of nearby training facility stood at 3rd
rank with the mean garret score of 54.85.
