Cooperatives play a great part in production, income, employment generation, providing for basic needs and fair distribution of facilities. The current paper studies the extent to which agricultural cooperatives (production and farming coops) have been able to generate employment. Data were obtained through 196 questionnaires using random two-loyer sampling in 1389 (2010). Lojit econometric method was employed for mathematical analysis. Results indicate that variables of membership, loans paid, age and family size have positive effect in cattle farming cooperatives compared with extensional activities which turn out to be negative.
