Vet World. 2009; 2(5): 191-192


A study was conducted in Thrissur taluk of Thrissur district to understand the problems perceived by the farmwomen in poultry farming. A random sample of 120 farm women were selected from the two randomly selected blocks of Thrissur taluk. Inadequate knowledge of low cost scientific cage construction, low hatchability of eggs in summer, problems of predators, losses due to bacterial and viral diseases and financial difficulties were the problems perceived as most serious by the farmwomen.
