Much Required goat farming Equipment list
1. Burdizzo castrator
If you are raising goats for meat then Burdizzo castrator is the much needed tool for you.
If you castrate the goat then their weight gain is more than normal weight gain per month.
For example, the uncastrated goat gains 3 to 4 kg per month but the castrated goat gains weight from 5 to 6 kg per month.
The castrated goat has more fat in their body weight compared to uncastrated goats. The people in India prefer to eat castrated goats compared to buck because castrated goat meat is tastier, leaner, and less smelly.
The Price of burdizzo castrator ranges from 1500 to 2000 rs. You have to purchase it online.
Drencher is another much-needed equipment in goat farming. Sometimes you have to feed the goats orally.
You also have to deworm and giving medicines orally, this is a problem-solving tool if you have more goats.
In this tool you have to fill the medicine or dewormer once, after that you can feed to goats continuously no need to fill the syringe from medicines again and again.
3. Goat farming Book
The book works as a tool, it is the most important part of goat farm because the handbook tells you the solution of every single problem.
The goat farming handbook helps you with the solution of every disease, house, and management under the house.
The treatment is the main part of the book, you can detect the symptoms, treatment and prevention as well.
4. goat Feeding equipment
Feeders increase the productivity of goats, normally goats waste the feed a lot, giving on a tray is the main thing of an organized goat farm.
Many Times the big and strong goats do not eat them to weak and small goats, the feeder equipment in the farm solves this problem of feeding.
I am sharing the scientific design of goat feeders. This feeder is sufficient for 10 goats. For the size and weight of the feeding tray, you can learn completely from the goat feeding tray design.
5. Waterers for goats
The goats drink 1.5 liters of water in a day, fresh & clean water provided to goats is necessary otherwise it can turn into a major disease.
Don’t let them drink the storage water, always provide them fresh and clean water for their better health.
Most of the disease spread from the infected water. Water should always be outside, inside water can wet the floor and goats don’t like wet floors even they don’t sit on wet floors.
You can see the image for the design of water.
6. Goat Weighing machine
The weighing machine is also the needy tool of the farm that measures the flock’s productivity. The productivity can be measured by checking the weight of the goat.
If the goat gains weight then its productivity has increased or the goat is free from disease.
If the weight is decreasing then something is missing.
So I can check it by measuring the weight of goats every month. A weighing machine is the common tool of the farm. It should be different from others’ weight machines.
The shape of this machine should be 3 x 5 for easy measurement.
7. Hoof trimmer
Hoof trimmer saves the goats from foot root disease. The grown hoof should be cut every month otherwise it can decrease the flock productivity.
If you are not able to cut it every month then you can cut the hoof before monsoon.
It is one of the cheaper tools but makes importance in the farm.
The cuted hoof should be thrown outside the farm.
