Perceptions on the Quality and Perceived Constraints in the Accessibility of Livestock Services in Tamil Nadu (South India)
AbstractThis paper on the farmers’ perception on livestock services provision in Tamil Nadu reveals that the home services rendered by veterinarians as the best one, followed by private veterinary clinics, home services by Para-veterinarians, public veterinary centaers and co-operative veterinary centers. This paper exhibits the major constraints in availing the public livestock services by the farmers such as long distance to the public veterinary center, longer waiting time to attend the case by the service provider and inadequacy of drugs in the centers. Further, it concludes that high service charges, expensive drug/semen and delay in availing appointment of service provider are the main problems of the private livestock services, hence, there is a need to provide improved services to the farmers through regulatory framework.
