Abstract: Dairy farmers face problems in managing dairy farms during natural calamities such as flood and drought. The present research study was carried out in flood affected taluks of Belgaum and drought affected taluks of Gadag district of North Karnataka during 2021-22. The study focused on identifying the external aids received, constraints faced and the suggestions given by the dairy farmers in managing dairy farms during natural calamities. A total of 120 respondents were selected from flood and drought affected district using purposive random sampling method. Personal interview method was employed to collect the data. The results revealed that external aid/assistance received by the dairy farmers in case of drought condition is less when compared to that of the flood affected area farmers.
