Abstract: Commercialization of livestock enterprises through scientific management practices is a pre requisite for enabling tribal farmers of Karbi Anglong as well as entire North East Region to increase their farm income and overcome poverty apart from attaining nutritional security. However, systematic information on existing resource utilization, management practices, productivity, profitability, problems, constraints etc. are conspicuous by their absence which are pre requisites for planning and proper execution of developmental programmes. This study has, therefore, been conducted to examine the existing status of livestock sector, its profitability, constraints of production, need for technical and supportive intervention with special reference to Karbi, Dimasa and Bodo farmers in Karbi Anglong district of Assam with the following specific objectives to study the existing size, productivity and profitability of livestock enterprises to examine the contribution of livestock enterprises to the total farm income, to examine the impact of the development programmes implemented by concerned departments and to have farmers response and to find out the production constraints and need for technical and supportive intervention.
