HoD, Dr Rakesh Kumar Sharma said farmers in the state will be trained to keep their goats healthy throughout the year. The other aspects of improving goat husbandry and husbandry, such as better housing and feeding practices, have direct implications for the incomes of millions of households as well as national food security.

Benefits of goat farming

Due to the low input requirements, goat production is ideal for unemployed youth, women, ex-military, etc. who can easily acquire skills in this profession. Apart from meat, goat’s milk remains in high demand. There are huge opportunities for adding value and processing goat milk and meat which can further improve incomes.

In addition, goats are adapted to a wide variety of climatic conditions and they are hardy in nature.












Goat has many specialties such as smaller size, easy handling, wide range of edibles and wider climatic adaptability etc. which makes it a favorite animal all over the world.
