Majority of the farmers (63.3%) had medium level of adoption while 7.1% had high adoption rate with regards to improved animal husbandry practices. Adoption of improved breeding practices was highest (55.65%) followed by improved feeding practices (33.8%). Lowest adoption rates were observed for clean milk production practices.
