Barbari is the popular and unique goat breed of India. This breed is found in Agra, Mathura, and nearby regions. This is the short height medium size goat breed that is mainly raised for meat purpose because the Barbari goat breed is mainly known for giving the twins triplets and quadruplets.

Where can you get the best goat farming training in UP?
Well being an experienced goat farmer I will suggest you don’t take the goat farming training from the traders because so many fake people provide goat farming training in uttar pradesh. Always take the training where 100 female goats are available in there farm.
There are a lot of institutes providing goat farming training in UP better then you go for government institute for training for the best results but the government doctors can give you theoretical knowledge but can’t get you practical knowledge of goats. I will suggest you take the goat farming training from Indus goat farm and training center which is located in Ujjain Madhya Pradesh to learn better goat farming. They provide you theoretical as well as practical knowledge. They always raised 100 female goats on the farm.
In that training you will learn all about goat farming from their roots to what treatment you have to give when your goat is sick.
