Résumé
This study was carried out in district Mardan of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to determine factors affecting welfare of livestock farm household’s. A multistage sampling technique was used to collect a sample of 274 livestock farm households from six union councils of district Mardan. Data were collected through face to face interview from female members of the selected livestock farm households in 2015-16. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistical techniques for estimation of total cost on milk production and net returns from milk production. Ordered logit model was used to determine factors affecting household’s welfare, measured as daily per capita income level. Variables, such as income generating individuals, milking animals, women participation in livestock farming, education level of the head, age of the head and agricultural land holdingof the household, were used as explanatory variables in the model. Data analysis revealed that average milk produced by a buffalo and cow was 180 and 135 liters per month, respectively. Results for milk production cost showed that feed cost was the major component of total cost followed by labor cost. Average total costs of milk production of buffalo and cow were Rs.12835 and Rs.10070 per month ; respectively. The average net income per liter from buffalo and cow milk was Rs. 29 and Rs. 5, respectively, and benefit-cost ratios for buffalo and cow were 1:1.43 and 1:1.07, respectively. Hence, buffaloes were found more productive and profitable than cows. Results of ordered logit model showed that education level of the head, numbers of income generating individuals, land holding, number of milking animals, women involvement in livestock farming, access to agricultural credit had positive significant effects household’s probability to be in the upper income category. Furthermore, due to the positive association between women’s involvement in livestock farming and household’s welfare, the study estimated women involvement level in different livestock farming activities and finally a linear regression analysis was used to identify important determinants for women’s involvement in livestock farming. Results from Likert scale data analysis showed that in overall male participation in livestock farming was 37 percent while women participation 52 percent. Similarly, results from linear regression analysis revealed that female respondent’s age, education level of the head, access to credit, livestock income from milk, tenural status and distance from city had positive significant effects on women participation level in livestock farming. Based on the findings, study recommends that the significance of women participation for growth in livestock industry should be recognized in government planes and policies. Nongovernment organization, working for rural development, should be involved in provision of credit and livestock training facilities to rural women to encourage them to participate in livestock production. Access to credit will provide them decision power in livestock management activities
