SCOPE OF GOAT FARMING IN INDIA

Goat Farming has been done in India since times immemorial and that is testament to the fact that there always was and there always will be a market for goat farming in India. Further, goats are said to be some of the first animals to ever have been domesticated, which indicates the ease of goat farming as a business, given how easy to maintain and domesticate goats are. Aside from being one of the main meat-producing animals, goats are often referred to as  “poor man’s cow” due to how inexpensive they are as compared to cattle.

In areas that are excessively dry, goats happen to be an essential component as cattle like cows and buffaloes would not thrive in such farm systems. This is because goats are low maintenance and can survive on a wild shrub that grows even in dry regions devoid of much water. Milk, skin, hair, and meat, are some of the most popular reasons behind goat rearing in India. Goat meat is also referred to as “chevon” in culinary terms. Goat rearing is a highly profitable business. As stated above, goat farming or rearing is certainly not a recent practice in our country, but over recent years has gotten heavily in demand in terms of commerciality, among entrepreneurs, due to its good economic prospects, favorable market conditions, and easy accessibility.

STARTING YOUR OWN GOAT FARM

The fact that the initial investment needed for starting a Goat farming business is pretty low makes goat farming an advantageous venture. The investment rates are low because the cost of goat maintenance is also pretty low largely due to their petite size and naturally calm demeanor. This also makes the housing and shedding requirements manageable. Problems around taming goats are relatively pretty less.

Goats attain sexual maturity at the age of merely 10-12 months. This can result in more breeding and given how short the gestation period for goats is, they start milking pretty soon too, that is, usually around the age of merely 16 or 17 months. It is a frequent feature for goats to birth twins, therefore, multiplication doesn’t really take too long.


The process of starting your own goat farm can be summed up in a few simple points:

1) Location: Though common goats generally survive in warm areas that are well-drained, certain points should be kept in mind while selecting the right location. The land must be spacious and suitable for the production of grass and other green crops as goats eat a lot of grass and this can reduce supplementary feeding costs as well.

A large spacious field will allow the animals to roam freely, it should be kept in mind that goats like to live in groups, that is why an individual pen will not be effective. Goats that are allowed to roam freely usually have better resistance to sickness and infection. Hence, an ideal location to set up your own goat farm should be spacious, clean, and easily accessible to a clean source of water and food source.

2) Breed selection: A breed should be chosen as per the purpose as there are breeds that produce more milk while there are others that grow quickly and will be more suitable for meat production. It must be noted that different types of breeds require different amounts of care and not all breeds are suited for commercial production. Some common goat varieties found in the southern region of the country include Malabari/ Tellicherry, Attappady, Sannen x Malabari cross-breeds, etc

3) Housing: For profitable commercial production, the pen must be kept clean and dry. It should be a well-designed barn or shed which is well lit and has proper ventilation but must be well protected from rain. Make sure that the shelter has a proper drainage system. This will be beneficial in proper cleaning. 

4) Care and management: It should be made sure that the goats are provided with a good portion of fresh grass, fiber, and  clean water to ensure proper growth. Take extra care of the breeding bucks, kids, and pregnant does. Keep the kids with their mother for several weeks after their birth. Make sure the goats get timely, proper vaccination for prevention against diseases such as goat pox, PPR, anthrax, etc. that are very harmful to the goats and appropriate veterinarian prescribed medication.

While doing this on a large scale may feel cumbersome to a newcomer, it is common sentiment across farmers that goat farming is one of the easiest livestock farming options they’ve ever taken up. Besides being commercially rewarding, goat rearing is said to be cathartic in its own way, given how friendly and sociable goats are.
