The attitudes were measured before and four weeks after their exposure to the message. The results show that the attitude change was in favourable direction for the livestock owners who did not use artificial insemination technology in their animals, who dwell beyond 5 km radius from the artificial insemination centre, who have never used artificial insemination technology in their animals and among livestock owners of Farah, Mathura and Goverdhan blocks
