Résumé A study on livestock production systems of rural and peri-urban livestock owners was carried out during 2005-06 by following proportionate random sampling procedure. Totally 160 farmers were selected and data was collected by personal interview method. The important findings of the study were ; typology with 17 types was developed to classify the livestock owners based on land holding, mean herd size, fodder management and income level. Most of the respondents (27) belonged to type 10 of the typology developed. Most of the respondents (41.25%) belonged to good performing units when classified based on economic performance. In fodder management, most of the rural (51.25%) and periurban (46.25%) respondents belonged to good management category. Benefit-cost ratio was highest (2.354) for rural livestock production system as compared to peri-urban livestock production system (1.0%). Percentage deficiency of digestible crude protein (DCP) was 36.8 per cent in rural and no deficiency of the same was found in peri-urban livestock production system. The percentage deficiency of total digestible nutrients (kg) for milch animals was 68.94 per cent in rural and 41.83 per cent in peri-urban livestock production systems. Out of 10 researchers, 8 researchers suggested that intercultivation of improved perennial grasses and improved perennial legumes was appropriate method in irrigated livestock production system. However, 7 researchers suggested intercultivation of high yielding dryland grass and legumes together and growing dryland improved grass, legumes and fodder trees as appropriate technological option for rainfed areas. Majority of the respondents (40%) expressed lack of knowledge on fodder cultivation as major constraint in fodder management. Présentation (KrishiKosh)
