The Adoption of Recommended Practices by Dairy Farmers in Southern Thailand
B. Srinoy, C. Chantalakhana, S. Saithanoo, K. Pattamarakha
Raising dairy cattle for milk production has been promoted and supported by the Thai government in recent years. The extent to which dairy farmers in southern Thailand use the practices recommended by government officers is not known and was investigated in this study. With dairy farming in southern Thailand mainly concentrated in the Phatthalung province, the entire population of dairy farmers in this province was studied. A total of 114 dairy farmers were studied by personal interviews. The results showed that the farmers varied widely in their use of the practices for dairy production in southern Thailand. The study identified that the major problems in dairy production in southern Thailand were low rates of conception to artificial insemination, the high price of feedstuffs and a shortage of roughage in the dry summer months.
