Is goat farming profitable in Kerala

from the above goat farming project report, I can surely say that the goat farming in Kerala is quite profitable because in Kerala the goat meat-eaters are more compere to any other state. according to research, 97% of people in Kerala are meat are non-vegetarian. therefor the possibility of selling your product is 97%.

you have to only do goat farming with a focus to achieve success, if you raise 100 female goats on your farm then you can make serious money with this business. only once you have to spend money on buying goat after their kid’s production you have to earn money.

Kerala is the agriculture dominant state of India, the availability of green fodder is more compare to other states. if you grow your own feed at your land then seriously you can double your profit.
