Abstract


A study was conducted in 100 households to assess the extent of physical involvement of men and women of the family in different aspects of dairying, at Vilanganoor, a village near Thrissur. It was revealed that in housing and feeding of cattle which are adopted within the household, a fairly good involvement of women was noticed. In selection, breeding and treatment of animals which require outside contact, involvement of men was significantly higher. There was no significant difference between men and women in their physical involvement in milking of animals.
