Abstract: Information of broiler farms, adoption of scientific knowledge and managemental skill of broiler farmers were collected. Data were collected through personal interview from 140 farmers at 6 thana`s of Rajshahi district. In this study, 45.3% large, 30.7% medium, 12.5% small, 7.0% marginal and 4.5% landless farmers were involved in commercial broiler farming programme. In case of educational level, about half of the farmers (47.30%) had above secondary, 36.0% had secondary, 12.2% had primary and rest of the farmers (4.5%) had no educational qualification. In case of feed use, percentage of self-preparation and ready made feed were 60.0 and 40.0% respectively. In vaccination, 70.0% broiler farmers vaccinated their birds regularly and 30.0% farmers vaccinated their birds irregularly. In case of floor management system, 80.7% farmers used deep litter system with sow dust or rice husk and rest 19.3% farmers used slate system. About 54.5% farmers did not have any training on broiler farming, whereas only 45.5% farmers had taken training on broiler farming, 71.43% of the respondents had high level of knowledge, 24.29% in medium and only a few respondents (4.28%) possessed very poor knowledge about broiler farming. On the other hand, 37.86% of the broiler farmers had high level of managemental skill based scientific knowledge. However, 52.85% respondents possessed medium managemental skill and a few of them (9.29%) never cared about the skilled management. So this indicates that broiler farmers need to be trained in routine management aspects.
