Abstract:
Present study was conducted in purposively selected Palghar district from Mumbai Metropolitan region of Maharashtra state to gauge enterprising conduct among dairy entrepreneurs. From the selected district, five blocks and from each block, five villages were selected randomly. Further, from each village five dairy farmers were chosen randomly making a total of 125 dairy entrepreneurs who had dairy experience of atleast three years and had atleast five dairy animals in their farm during the survey. Organized pretested interview schedule was set up in local language (Marathi) to gather the data through personal interview strategy. Entrepreneurial traits of dairy farmers were measured in five categories namely innovativeness, achievement motivation, risk orientation, manageability and feedback usage. The study reflected that overall entrepreneurial traits were of medium level. Major constraints faced by dairy farmers while managing dairy enterprise were high cost of cross breed cows, irregularity of milk sale and high cost of concentrate mixture.
