An ex-post facto research design was adopted to study the constraints in marketing of cattle in eastern dry zone of Karnataka. The study sample comprised of six cattle markets and two annual cattle fairs. Ten sellers and ten buyers from each market and cattle fair were selected randomly. The study revealed that lack of drinking water and lack of transportation facilities were the top two constraints ranked by sellers and buyers in both cattle markets and cattle fairs. Lack of sheds for animals was the least bothering problem for sellers and buyers in cattle market. In cattle fairs, lack of animal shed was felt more serious problem which attributed to longer duration stay in cattle fairs compared to few hours in cattle markets. Steps have to be taken to provide the required basic facilities in cattle market and fair to avoid animal suffering and to improve marketing environment.

Key words: Constraints, Cattle, Market, Karnataka
