The study concluded that respondents were highly satisfied with the IEMM but fewer percentage of respondents experienced difficulty in understanding of few technologies existed on it. Hence, regular training in handling IEMM tools is essential for interested progressive tribal dairy farmers to increase the adoption rate.The crux of this IEMM is to serve as effective information delivery systems for extension of technical know-how to the learners. IEMM plays a pivotal role in livestock education and ultimately helps in dissemination of current scientific information in a readily accessible format through user- friendly communication medium to all the stakeholders who involved in the dairy sector. Further, results revealed that farmers inclined towards accepting Cyber Extension. Thus, Prototype Instructions (PIs) can be taken as mission-mode outreach via Common Service Centers (CSC) under NeGP. Government agencies, NGOs and private companies can commercialize such IEMMs by producing them in a cost- effective manner in such a way that it should reach the unreached. Computer access with IEMM for GDFPs can be installed in extension centers such as State Department of Animal Husbandry, State Department of Agriculture, Horticulture, KVK, ATIC, ARIS, ATMA, FTC etc., for the benefit of different stakeholders viz., farmers, students, grass root functionaries of various development departments.
