The Gujjar women carried out all of the dairy management operations such as bringing in fodder, providing drinking water, milking, cleaning of sheds, whereas breeding in animals, calving and the administration of medicines were shared activities with male family members. Also they were aware of different feed and feeding practicing, knowledge of various concentrates mixtures, fodder production and management practices required for dairy management but they lack technical knowledge about the same. From the findings, it could thus be concluded that tribal women perform different roles; they work in home and in dairy and contributed a lot in the tribal economy.
