In rural India, livestock plays a multifaceted role in providing draught power to the farm, manure for crops, energy for cooking and food for household consumption as well as creates rural employment and improves rural economy. Women play an important role in dairy farming sector. Look after the livestock farming practices besides their day-to-day household chores. So women must be paid their share from the income generated from livestock farming.  Livestock sector provides employment to 18 million people of which nearly 70 per cent of them are women. Further, dairy sector is the major source of income for an estimated 27.6 million people8. Though women play a significant role in livestock management and production, they could not find appropriate place in decision making on livestock farming. In this background, the study on Mulukanoor Women Cooperative Dairy, community enterprise with wide range of customers, and working for the livelihood enhancement of large number of rural milk producers, has been carried out.

Key words: Women Dairy cooperatives, Entrepreneurship, Empowerment
