Women, who often take the lead in small-scale livestock farming, can generate their own income, which enhances their economic independence and bargaining power within the household. Livestock products such as milk, meat, and eggs contribute to improved family nutrition. Women, as primary caregivers, often ensure these resources are used to benefit family health, which can enhance their role and recognition in household dynamics. This study was conducted in District Faisalabad. A convenient sampling technique used for data collection. This study included 120 respondents. A quantitative method  used for data collection.
