Commercial Goatery 1. Why do goat rearing?

Goat is a multi functional animal and plays a significant role in the economy and nutrition of landless, small and marginal farmers in the country. Goat rearing is an enterprise which has been practiced by a large section of population in rural areas. Goats can efficiently survive on available shrubs and trees in adverse harsh environment in low fertility lands where no other crop can be grown. In pastoral and agricultural subsistence societies in India, goats are kept as a source of additional income and as an insurance against disaster. Goats are also used in ceremonial feastings and for the payment of social dues. In addition to this, goat has religious and ritualistic importance in many societies. The advantages of goat rearing are : i) The initial investment needed for Goat farming is low. ii) Due to small body size and docile nature, housing requirements and managemental problems with goats are less. iii) Goats are friendly animals and enjoy being with the people. iv) Goats are prolific breeders and achieve sexual maturity at the age of 10-12 months gestation period in goats is short and at the age of 16-17 months it starts giving milk. Twinning is very common and triplets and quadruplets are rare. v) In drought prone areas risk of goat farming is very much less as compared to other livestock species. vi) Unlike large animals in commercial farm conditions both male and female goats have equal value. vii) Goats are ideal for mixed species grazing. The animal can thrive well on wide variety of thorny bushes, weeds, crop residues, agricultural by-products unsuitable for human consumption. viii)Under proper management, goats can improve and maintain grazing land and reduce bush encroachment (biological control) without causing harm to the environment. ix) No religious taboo against goat slaughter and meat consumption prevalent in the country. x) Slaughter and dressing operation and meat disposal can be carried without much environmental problems. xi) The goat meat is more lean (low cholesterol) and relatively good for people who

prefer low energy diet especially in summer and sometimes goat meat (chevon) is preferred over mutton because of its "chewability" xii)Goat milk is easy to digest than cow milk because of small fat globules and is naturally homogenized. Goat milk is said to play a role in improving appetite and digestive efficiency. Goat milk is non allergic as compared to cow milk and it has antifungal and anti bacterial properties and can be used for treating urogenital diseases of fungal origin. xiii) Goats are 2.5 times more economical than sheep on free range grazing under semi arid conditions. xiv)Goat creates employment to the rural poor besides effectively utilising unpaid family labour. There is ample scope for establishing cottage industries based on goat meat and milk products and value addition to skin and fiber. xv)Goat is termed as walking refrigerator for the storage of milk and can be milked number of times in a day. 2 Scope for goat rearing and its national importance 2.1 The country has 115.278 million goat as per 1992 livestock census has increased to 120.8 million in 1997 and ranks first in the world. The state wise goat population is given in Annexure-I. Goat meat production stands at the level of 0.47 million tonnes. The slaughter rate of goat is at the level of 39.7 % as compared to 31.8% for sheep and 11% for buffaloes respectively. Goat also produce 2.55 million tonnes of milk and 0.1288 million tonnes of skin as per FAO 189 records 2002 report (Annexure-II).The trend in consumption of mutton and goat meat shows increase from 467000MT in 1981 to 696000 MTin 2002indicating annual compound growth rate of 1.28 % during 9202.Sheep and goat meat production has reached 700400MT during 2002in India. Ovine meat export has touched 29670 thousand $ during 2000 which was then reduced to 5635thousand $ during 2001. 2.2 Goat make a valuable contribution to the livelihood of economically weaker sections of the society. Amongst the livestock owners goat rearers are the poorest of the lot. 2.3 Realizing the importance of goat in the agrarian economy of the country, various developmental activities have been taken up by Govt. of India. The Central Government had established Central Institute for Research on Goats at Makhdoom, Farah, Mathura District, Uttar Pradesh. During VIII Plan Period Seven Intensive goat breeding farms were proposed with the objectives: i) To produce 1000 stud bucks per year for the distribution among goat rearers ii) To improve yield of milk and chevon through selective breeding of regular breeds like

iv) To conserve germ plasm of regular breeds like Jamnapari. 3. marketing aspects.2 Loan from banks with refinance facility from NABARD is available for starting Goat farming.

fever. to kids from 15 days onwards. 3. For every 25 does one buck should be provided in one breeding season. 6. 2. IV. It should be planned to obtain 3 kiddings in 2 years period by adopting optimal management conditions. immediately segregate the sickanimals from healthy one and take necessary disease control measures. Be on the alert for signs of illness such as reduced feed intake. Protection against diseases: 1. 10. Examine the faeces of adult animals to detect eggs of internal parasites and treat the animals with suitable drugs. 7. Provide clean and uncontaminated feed and water for minimising the health disorders. 5.Provide salt and water to kids at all times 9. 7. 3.starter rations. 4. 4. 8. abnormal discharge or unusual behaviour. 2.

In case of outbreak of contagious diseases. Unbreedable animals must be examined thoroughly as directed by veterinary doctor for prompt elimination of causes for anoestrum or cull them if necessary.Green leguminous fodders should be offered adlib. Protect the animals against common diseases. Deworm the animals regularly. Breed the animals 12 hours after the onset of the first symptoms of heat for maximum conception. 8. Additional concentrates should be given to bucks and does during breeding season. . Consult the nearest veterinary aid centre for help if illness is suspected.

. 6. Protect the kids from extreme weather conditions. 2. Marketing: The marketable products of goat farming include the fattened kids. Care during pregnancy: In advanced stage of pregnancy the does must be transferred to either kidding pens or separately earmarked space for kidding within the main shed after thoroughly disinfecting it. particularly during the first two months. Male kids should be castrated for better quality meat production. 4. After kidding. Marketing avenues for the above products are slaughter houses and individual meat consuming customers and agriculture farms. Proper selection of kids on the basis of initial body weight and weaning weight should be initiated by maintaining appropriate records for replacing the culled adult stock as breeders. 3. Treat / disinfect the naval cord with tincture of iodine as soon as it is cut with a sharp knife. Care of kids: 1. manure. Dehorn the kids during first two weeks of age 5.VI. the does should be provided with warm bran mash for two days. Therefore availability of either slaughtering facilities or traders who will purchase live animals should be ensured to convert the fatteners into wholesome meat and meat products. 9. VII. Further. demand for manure from nearby agriculture farms must also be ensured. VIII. Wean the kids at the age of 8 weeks 8. Vaccinate the kids as per the recommended schedule 7. culled animals. Additional feed requirements of lactating does must be ensured for proper nursing of all the piglets born. Take care of new born kids by providing guard rails.
