The present study on relationship between management factors in crossbred cattle and days
openas well as the constraints faced by dairy farmers was purposively conducted in Bengaluru rural
district of Karnataka.The data were collected using a structured pretested interview schedule from
120 respondents selected randomly from four taluks viz; Devanahalli, Doddaballapur, Hoskote and
Nelamangala. The study revealed that number of artificial insemination (AI) in relation to conception
and voluntary waiting period had a positive significant correlation to days open in dairy cattle. Lack
of awareness on deworming of cattle was the major constraint among the respondents. Hence,
the authors conclude that extension activities like meetings, discussions, mass media, etc. are
to be planned and conducted by extension agencies to increase knowledge and thereby adoption
of recommended practices leading to increase production and income generation.
