Abstract

By survey and the analyzed data of cattle markets of Chandrapur district it was observed that at all the markets under study majority of bullocks sold were non descript. The trend indicated that there was no special priority to have the bullocks of descript draft breed. The farmers or sellers sold young and adult bullocks to get more income from selling, while old bullocks are sold to replace new bullocks. Greater number of sellers (78%) sold their bullocks through brokers and very few seller (5%) had trust on broker about guarantee of payment. Maximum farmers (71% & 60%) sold their bullocks due to financial & fodder problems respectively. All bullock purchasers (100%) considered bullock teeth to select the good bullocks. To sale low quality bullocks Warora market is good and for marketing of medium quality bullocks Brahmpuri market is better and also to sale best & excellent quality bullocks Brahmpuri market is better.
