ABSTRACT
In India, insurance market, especially in the agricultural sector, is usually underdeveloped.The information was gleaned from 75 each adopter and non-adopter sampled farmers of livestock insurance.The results revealed that the small farmers had insured a number of animals in their herd as compare to large herds to safeguard against risk arising to secure their nutritional security and death risk. The animals insured for a sum in the range of `30,000 to 45,000 per animal were the highest (54.31 per cent). It is also found that livestock insurance has moved in favour of a small category of farmers to avoid risk.
