The study is an ex-post facto research to ascertain the entrepreneurial behavior of the trainees who attended the entrepreneurship development programme onpiggery at agri-business incubator ICAR-IVRI (Pashu-Vigyan Incubator). A purposive sampling technique was used to select 80 trainees starting their piggery enterprises. The data were collected through mailed e-questionnaire and telephonic follow-up. The entrepreneurial behavior was determined on nine dimensions and majority of the trainees showed a high level of ‘cosmopoliteness’, ‘achievement motivation’, ‘risk orientation’ and coordinating ability but possessed medium level ‘information seeking behavior’, ‘self-confidence’, ‘innovativeness’, ‘planning ability’. The entrepreneurial behavior showed positive and significant correlation with their experience in piggery, attitude towards scientific piggery farming, social participation, education and income.
