Abstract


The study assessed livestock Fadama users’ access to information on selected livestock technologies in Oyo zone of Oyo State Agricultural Development Programme. Multi-Stage sampling procedure was used to select one-hundred and four respondents from six livestock Fadama Users’ Groups (FUGs). Results indicate that more than three quarter of members of FUGs had formal education with large family size (66.3%). Fadama desk officers (99.0%), state facilitators (98.1%) and group members (98.1%) regularly served as sources of information on livestock technologies to Fadama Users. The FUGs members never had access to information on key livestock technologies like artificial insemination, automated feeding, feed formulation and creep feeding. Farmers’ number of years of formal education (r = -0.09) and family size (r= 0.09) had no significant relationships with respondents’ access to  information on selected livestock
