Future scope of Goat farming or why you should enter in this Business?

The graph curve of goat farming is increasing. I have never seen any downfall in this business. The goat meat price is continuously increasing. India is the top exporter of goat and goat meat throughout the world. millions of goats sold at the Eid festival in India.

In my area, the price of goat meat is 550 Rs per Kg and I know it will touch 600 Rs per kg in the next year. You can expect the potential of this business. 

Generally, the goat starts to eat a little bit after one month and for a goat farmer, the cost spent on one goat after one month is around 10 to 12 rupees average per day. 

Goat farming MathsHow Much You can Earn?

If you reared one female goat for 14 months. Normally one goat Probably gives two kids in one gestation period(5 months). We raised goat and their kids.

We sold two kids in 6 months remaining 2 kids we raised for one year for sale on the Eid festival because we can get more price at this festival. 

Normally, The cost spent on goat feed for one goat is 12 rs per day.

(14 months=420 days, 5 months = 150 days, 1 year =  365 days)

1 Female for 14 months  – 1 x 420 x 12 = 5040 Rs

2 Kid for five months – 2 x 150 x 12 = 3400 Rs

2 Kid for 1 years – 2 x 365 x 12 = 8760 Rs

Total cost spent on feed =  17200 Rs

Now I have to sale all my goat’s kid then what money I will get

 2 kids, I sold in 6 months in 5000 rs = 10000

2 goat I sold in Eid festival in 15000rs = 30000

Total =40000

 the money I got in my hand is 40000

What I spent on feed is 17200

therefore 40000-17200 = 22800 rs

in this Training, the Indus Goat Farm also teaches you how can you earn more than that and the hidden principles of goat farming.

You earn 22800 and you have your female goat left in your farm. You can expect how much you can earn with 100 female goats. To check the project report of 100 female goats click on the link Goat farming project report of (100+5 goats).

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.

2. Drencher

goat drenching tool

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

Goat feeding tray

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

Goat water equipment

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

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.

  • Goat disease
  • How to care and management of goats properly

If you do these things before, then the success rate of your farming career may be double.

I don’t know the importance of these five things before entering into this business, I have done these things on my own, or in other words I can say that on the basis of human thinking.

How do I learn these Goat farming basics?

I am educated and I like to make records of all things. Whenever a senior doctor or livestock specialist comes to my farm, I have noted all their suggestions and implemented that. I also implemented the experienced goat farmer suggestion. 

Day by day, I learned all the basics and now I am also learning one thing a day. I can’t say I am an expert but I can share the things I know.

You can also do the same if you want to learn, this is applicable in all the business not only in goat farming.

So let’s get start some basics of goat farming

Basics of Goat Housing: Keep these things in Mind

in the basics of goat housing, you should know before making a house for goats is that, make a goat shed with the proper space of goats you are planning for. 

for example, if you are planning for 100 Goats then you have to learn about how much space is required for 100 goats and design a proper shed so you stay away from overcrowding.

Overcrowding in the house is the biggest problem the goat faces in the pen. Even the goats don’t get the proper weight gain because of overcrowding.

Like humans don’t like overcrowding the goat is the living animal they also don’t prefer over crowding in the house.

If you are looking for the proper housing design then I have the article that helps you to learn about the space requirement for 100 Goats.

After space, the orientation of sheds matters a lot, the East-west orientation shed is quite beneficial for Indian tropical conditions. The benefits of this direction shed you can see during the summers and winters.

After space, the ventilation of the shed is much important to remove all the gases from the farms.

Basics of Goat feeding: this will help your goat for better health

Feeding is one of the most important part of goat health, all your profit on the farm depends on what you are feeding to the goats.

It is the universal truth that if you want something from someone first you have to give. after you can expect from someone. Things are also applicable to livestock.

If you are Expecting milk, meat from the goats then first you have to provide them quality feed.

Indus Goat farm

 70% of investing cost is spent on the feed of goats. You can minimize that if you have your own land by growing your own feed.

I grow my own maize, wheat and barley the remaining things like Soy Doc, grams i purchased from outside. You can do the same if you are looking for more profits in the goat farming.

Basics of Goat breeds: Front pillar of goat farming business

The goat breed is one of the front pillars of goat farming, all your profit and sales depend on the type of goats you have. If you don’t have quality goats on your farm you can’t expect the returns.

So first of all you have to raise a quality goat in your farm.

Select the breeds according to region and climate.

The Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat having not major differences in climates. If you are belonging to this region then you can raise Sirohi, Barbari, Jamunapari, Sojat goat breeds.

If you are a beginner then always buy a goat from the farm and the goats must be vaccinated from all five vaccines. 

Try to buy goats from the nearest place, because the transportation of goats is one of the major concern for the beginning of goat farming. The Goats come in stress while transportation.

There are some goat farming techniques you have to follow while transporting goats.

The better goat breed can give you more profits.

Basic of Goat Disease: The important goat raising Techniques

The animals don’t speak, they don’t say about their pain and difficulties. You have to detect the disease from their symptoms. 

This was a big task for me in the beginning but things changed when the years have passed. 

At present the mortality of my farm is .1%, i do proper prevention on my farm for the upcoming disease.

I do follow proper vaccination at my farm.

  • PPR
  • HS (hemorrhagic septicemia)
  • ET (Enterotoxaemia)
  • Goat Pox

Commercial Goat farming business plan to generate maximum profit

The plan is based on the following principle

  • Breeding purpose goat farming
  • Meat purpose
  • Milk purpose 
  • Eid purpose
goat farming business plan 2020

These are the four major objectives of goat farming that makes money for me that I follow. 

I raised100 Female goats at my farm and 4 breeder Buck. I Do breeding the 100 females whenever they come in heat. Normally 3 to 4 goats daily comes in heat. And 2 to 3 goats give kids every day. 

In our farm 60% goats give twins and 25% goats give single the reaning 5% gives triplets.

We mainly focus on Breeding purpose goat farming and sale quality goats to nearby farms.

Secondly, we raised male goats and prepared for eid and the remaining goat’s sale for meat butcher for slaughter.

From the 100 goats most of the milk we feed to goats and remaining milk 4 to 5 liters of milk we sell every day at a very good rate.

I provide goat farming training every month and share my experience to my trainees. I am an experienced goat farmer and owns Indus goat farm which is located in Ujjain Madhya Pradesh.

Is training needed to start a goat farm business?

It is the livestock business,  to minimize the risk the Goat farming training is needed if you start from more than 20 goat units. Goat farming training helps you understand the business and how to do it properly. 

Of Course the goat farming business is profitable, many young entrepreneurs are looking to start this but they can’t do it with perfection. They start making mistakes and then learn from mistakes but to avoid mistakes and loss in the beginning take the goat farming training from a reputed goat farm and do your homework before starting this business.  

Goat farming business profit: how much you can earn?

No doubt, it is a profitable business because of the huge demand for meat and meat products. The goat meat is one of the costlier meat in India and the demand is more than production.

Let us understand the goat farming business profit. To take the maximum profit in goat farming you have to feed your goat maximum 10 rs per day because a quality feed gives the quality results.

Generally, goats give two kids in one gestation period so you can take two breeding in one year and two months or can say that 14 months.

So in 14 months you will get 4 kids.

Assume first two kids are male kids and second gestation is two female kids for an example to understand properly.

We raised two male kids for Eid and two kids of 6 months we sold it for slaughter.

Feeding cost

One female for 14 months or 420 days.

Two kids for one year 365 days for eid

Two kids for 6 months 180 days

Feeding cost is 10 rs per day

No. of GoatsFeed cost x dayscost
1 female10 x 4204200
2 kids for one year2×10 x 3657300
2 kids for 6 months2×10 x 1803600
Total feed cost15100

Sale cost

Two one year goat we sold on Eid at 15000 Rs each

Two goat kid we sold for slaughter at the rate of 6000 Rs

Female goat is left with you for next production cycle

Sale of goatsRate x no of goatscost
Two goat on Eid15000×2  30000
Two goat on Slaughter6000×212000
Sale Total42000 Rs

Goat farming business profit = Sale cost – feed cost

= 42000 – 15100

Goat farming business profit from one goat = 26900 Rs

The best part of goat farming which I mostly like after taking production and raising of the goat is that After selling and getting profit the female goat is remaining in the farm for next production that’s the beauty of goat farming.

This is the profit of one goat. You can raise 100 goats in your farm and follow the same goat farming business plan in your farm and make maximum profit. 

These is the ground level business plan to understand the business, the expenditure like labor electricity and medical cost is not included in it if you want to add then minus 5000 rs from total profit as expenditure to raise one year of the following goats.

You have to give your time and energy to make these profits because nothing is free in this world. You have to put your effort into the goat farming business.

If you are looking for Goat farming in Nepal then you’re at the right place. Goat farming is the best suitable business for this country because Nepal is known for its nature and greenery environment.

The large part of the greeny plus Hilly area may be beneficial because goats love to eat green fodder and half of their better health is dependent on Green fodder.

In the goat farming business, 60% of the total cost is spent only on their feed and if you control the feed cost then no one restricts you from getting success in goat farming. 

The Best part of this business is that it can be done by a man or woman. Goats come under the small animal category and their nature is very calm. The women or a kid can handle many goats with proper management.

What is the scope of goat farming in Nepal?

Well, the scope of goat farming in Nepal is increasing day by day because the hilly areas are considered profitable for goat farming. 

The Breeding purpose of goat farming is good. The youngsters of this country are looking to the future in this business because the goat is a good source of meat, milk, fiber, and manure.

It produces two kids in each gestation and the gestation period is short compared to other livestock. The market for selling goats for meat and for breeding is good. 

The people of Nepal love to eat goat meat that’s the reason it is one of the costlier meat in Nepal.

Recently I have seen the Boer goat farming in Nepal is increasing and getting fame because the characteristics of Boer goats are growing rapidly. 

Boer goats have the capacity to achieve 70 kg in just 6 months that’s the reason the farmers of Nepal are attracted to Boer goats.

Why should you start goat farming in Nepal?

Because of increasing the demand for goat meat in Nepal many young entrepreneurs are attracting to the Goat farming business. We wish them the best of luck to expand these businesses in the country.

Approximately, 60% of live goats in Nepal come from India, if Nepal has large green areas and all the required things for goat farming are available so why import goats from India.

This Is a business opportunity for the people of Nepal. If they raise goats on their own and educate the farmers of Nepal then they can cut the supply chain of goats from India.

If the demand of Meat is more then why should you depend on Meat for other countries.

Which type of goat farming is Best suitable for Nepal?

There are three types of goat farming you can choose any one of them. All three have their own pros and cons. The type of goat farming depends on how much land you have. 

Goat is the selective feeder, it eats the leaves according to their need and completes their nutrition requirement.

Let’s focus on the type of goat farming

1. Extensive Goat farming: 

In this type of goat farming, all the goats go outside for grazing for 5 to 6 hours and feed dry and green leaves according to their need and complete their Nutrition requirement. 

 In Extensive goat farming, farmers don’t spend a single rupee on goat feed. This is the old type method and old farmers work on the extensive goat farming method. 

If you have hilly areas near your farm then you can work on this method.

2. Semi-intensive goat farming 

This is the best method of goat farming which I like the most because this method is a mixture of extensive and intensive goat farming.

In this method, the goat goes for grazing outside for 2 to 3 hours, and the handful of concentrate fodder (a mixture of grains) given to the goats after grazing.

Health and growth wise this is the best method for goat farming in Nepal.

You can make a good income applying this method of goat farming in your country.

3. Intensive Goat farming or Stall feeding goat farming

This another best goat farming method in which goats don’t go outside for grazing. All the feeding and nutrition requirements of goats complete under the stall.

The green, dry and concentrated feed should be given to goats at the time interval and the open space is given for exercise and better health of goats.

This method of goat farming is increasing across the world and becoming successful.

How to start Goat farming in Nepal in four steps?

Step 1: First of all, before buying the goats grow two to three types of green fodder crops in your farm area to complete the green fodder requirement of goats. 

The Berseem, lucerne, Hedge Lucerne, moringa are highly nutritious rich in proteins green fodder crops that saves a lot of your money.

To become successful in goat farming always grow your own green fodder and don’t buy from outside. 

Step 2: with growing green fodder crops make the shed for the goats, so before buying goats the house and feed is the most important part of goat farming. Do arrange these two things first. 

The size of the shed should be according to the number of goats and their kids. For example, if you are planning for 100 goats then you should also plan for their upcoming kids. 

Generally, a goat gives two kids in each gestation period, sometimes it gives a single. 100 goats also plan for their 150 upcoming kids. And 4 breeding bucks.

Step 3: Select the Breed according to the purpose of your goat farming for example if you are planning for meat purpose goat farming then select the breed which is best in meat production. For example Sirohi, Barbari goat breed is best for meat purpose goat farming

For breeding purpose goat farming Boer, Sannen, Jamunapari, Beetal, Sirohi, Barbari, Sojat are the best breed for breeding purpose goat farming.

For Milk purpose goat farming Jamunapari, sannen, beetal, Jakhrana are the best in milk production. You can select any one for milk production.

Step 4: After taking the goats on the farm, do their proper caretaking, breed best with best for higher production. Provide proper Nutrition to the goats.

if you are doing stall-feed goat farming then you have to provide calcium, liver tonic, and vitamins to the goats twice a week.

If you know nothing about goat management and their disease and are curious to learn then you can take goat farming training. In which you can learn all about goat farming from starting to end.

Final words

Well, In my opinion, Nepal is a developing country and in this situation setting up the goat farm in Nepal is the right time. 

But as per me Boer goat farming in Nepal has huge demand but don’t start with the Boer goat if you know nothing about goat farming, first of all, learn complete or get training and start with the local breed of Nepal after than come with the expensive breed then chances of your success will be more. 

Goat farming has a huge opportunity because this country has all the things which are required for goat farming.
