Abstract

The extent to which farmers use the recommended husbandry practices by farmers raising goats in southern Thailand was investigated. Base-line data was collected by interviewing 297 farmers and the constraints to the use of recommended husbandry practices were examined for these farmers in the Chana district, Songkhla province of southern Thailand. The number of farmers using the various recommended husbandry practices was low. An extension program is needed to encourage the use of recommended goat husbandry practices in target areas of southern Thailand to provide a better understanding of the most effective goat husbandry practices.
