Collection of data regarding, gain in knowledge, adopted level about improved livestock technologies in goat rearing and feeding of azolla were recorded before and after training. These findings revealed that the farmers had gained knowledge in housing 73.0%, 73.5% in breed awareness, 72.5% in vaccination, 70.0 % in deworming, 70.0% in fodder production, 60.5% in concentrate feed, 49.7% in Mineral mixture, 44% in flushing and 43.3% in Azolla feed. Study showed that very few farmers were known the scientific method of goat rearing and Azolla feeding before training programme whereas, after training programme they were adopting 78.3% in housing, 70.0 % in breed awareness, 61.5 % in vaccination, 55.0 % in deworming, 69.0% in green fodder production, 50.0% in concentrate feed, 52.0% in Mineral mixture, 47% in flushing and 35.5% in Azolla feeding. The overall adoption percentage by the farmers which indicated that training had a significant impact in uptake of new technologies.
