The study reveals that majority of the respondents (53.85%) in KVKs adopted villages had medium level of adoption of improved dairy farming practices, while over half of the total respondents (53.08%) in non-adopted villages were found in low adoption level of the same dairy farming practices. Specific recommendations like natural feeding/ grazing and sufficient supply of clean water under feeding practice, providing drainage facilities and milking lactating animals regularly under housing management and deworming and grooming under health care were found adoption by all the respondents (100%) in both categories. The study further shows that out of 13 independent variables under study, only three variables namely; education, farming experience and training received of the two categories of respondents were found having positively significant relationship with their extent of adoption of dairy farming practices.
