Abstract

A test was developed to measure skills of livestock owners in balanced feeding of pigs. Balanced feeding of pigs accounts a number of activities like preparation of mineral mixture, preparation and feeding of balanced ration and watering the pigs. All these activities were further splitted into their recommended sequential steps. These steps with become observational points at the time of actually measuring the competence of the performer of the skill in terms of accuracy. The experts were asked to assign scores to each steps on the relative importance and operational difficulty in carrying out the operation. The mean scores were calculated to get the final assigned score for each step. The coefficient of reliability and validity were found to be 0.98 and 0.99 respectively.
