The exploratory research design of social research was used in the present investigation. Dairying is one of the important enterprises, which supports the rural households by providing gainful employment and steady income.

The constraints faced by farm women while dairy farming were; high cost of quality concentrate feeds (98.00%) and high cost needed for purchasing crossbred animals and veterinary medicine (95.00%), followed by decline in performance of exotic animals due to the high temperature (94.00%) and low water profile and lack of irrigation facilities (85.00%),%), inadequacy of green fodder round the year (82.00%) and non remunerative price for milk (80.00%), Based on the assumption that the dairy farmers in Kalmeshwar Tahsil of Nagpur district were facing the crucial hindrance in the adoption of the scientific dairying, the present research was taken to get an insight into the constraints and the gravity of these factors affecting the dairy farmers of this region.
