A study was conducted to study the factors responsible for technological gap in good dairy farming practices in Uttar Pradesh. For the study central plain zone of Uttar Pradesh was selected purposively. From the zone two districts were selected randomly and from the districts four blocks were selected randomly. Two villages from each block were selected randomly. 10 per cent of dairy farmers were selected proportionate randomly sampling from the total farmers of each village. The criteria of the respondents are the dairy farmers should have at least one lactating dairy animal at the time of investigation. From the study it was observed that the most important factors faced by the farmers in technological gap of good animal health practices was “Lack of knowledge of diseases, their cause and control measures”. In case of good hygienic milking practices, most important constraint was “Lack of knowledge about hygienic milking practices”. “Lack of knowledge of balance feeding” was most important factors in good feeding practices. “Irregularity in providing feed and water” was most important factors found in good animal welfare practices. Most important factors in good environment practices as perceived by the Farmers was “Irregularly cleaning of animal and animal shed”. “Lack of knowledge to prepare project proposal” was important factors faced by the farmers in relation to socio-economic management practices. The study suggest that awareness programs and vocational training may be organized by the different department for capacity building of the farmers in the study area for reducing the technological gap of good dairy farming practices.
