Comprehensive Review

  • “Feeding is 70% cost of production in any type of Animal Farming”
  • In 70/100 times losses are due to casual managemental practices.
  • Poor management is also responsible for poor herd health and low productivity
  • If these two aspects correct and follow religiously/strictly than we can ensure you better results.

Prospects of goat farming

  • World current goat population = more than 800 million.
  • India current goat population = 154 million = 1 arab 54 crore (16.3% of world)
  • Total meat / year = 480 TMT = 480,000,000 Kg = 1kg costs 300/- = 1440 Crore Rupees Revenue
  • Total skin / year = 130 TMT = in goat skin contribute 11% of the live weight, in that case if Animal’s standing weight is 30 Kg than automatically its skin weight is around 3.3 Kg
  • Milk contribution around 5% of the total milk produce in India (total milk = 120 million ton).
  • 90% of total goats reared for meat
  • In India 41% (510 lakh goats) slaughter every year + 5-10 % mortality (deaths) even than our growthrate is 5%. Isn’t amazing, so prolific.
  • Per person availability of goat meat in India is only around ½ kg.
  • But these figures only encourage potential new entrepreneurs to take up goat farming as a full-fledged venture, now question arises “HOW”
  • According to the market stats citing above there is huge demand - supply gap in India. If you observe then you realize that total production is nearly 500,000,000 kg but consumption is around 600,000,000kg.
  • We have 2 markets. 1st - domestic market; 2nd – Export market.

Reference: These are the figures taken from “ADVANCES IN PRODUCTION AND REPRODUCTION IN GOATS” - 2009 published by CIRG (Central Institute for Research on Goats)

  • Due to unorganized and fragmented production mediators are running the market reaping all profits Most traders prefer second option. Why???

Look at this:

Top Exporters of Goat Meat

Australia 20,119 41.1
Ehiopia 12.659 25.7
China 4,406 8.9

Saudi Arabia 1,410 2.8
World 49,137 100
New Zealand 1,132 2.3
Others 3,145 6.4
Where is India in above list? In spite of being top goat population India is lagging behing in exports.



If we look at Production

India 350,000 6.8
Bangladesh 195.000 3.8

Greece 58000 1.1
Mali 5,820 1.0
Others 1,214,504 23.6
World 5,416,202 100

India is no. second in production but where is Australia? Australia is not having even 1% of total goat population but it is main goat meat exporting country. Reason might be its artificially selected and highly productive "BOER GOAT" production. These are meat goats and gain upto 130 to 150kg in 15 to 18 months. As compared to this Indian breed "Sirohi" gain hardly 50 to 60kg in 18 months.
