[Annual Administrative Report of the Department of Veterinary and Animal husbandry, Directorate of veterinary services (M.P), Bhopal India rank first in the world with milk production 86.67 mm. (2003-04) by the same report of the National Symposium. Even then India needs to increase milk production, which is possible by adopting the dairy management practices. The per capita availability of milk which was only 198 g/ day in 1995-96 increased to 216 g/ day indicating a growth (in production) in pace with the growing population. Around 60 per cent of the subsidiary income obtained by rural population is from the sale of milk or milk products. The level of knowledge and extent of adoption of dairy farmers towards improved dairy management practices has a critical role in modernizing the dairy farming. The herd size, education, family size, urban contact, extension contact, milk sale (per day), size of land holding, milk production (per day) and social participation were positive and significantly correlated with extent of adoption. Whereas, age of the non-participating respondents was observed negative and significantly correlated with extent of adoption of the non-participating respondents
