Before I would like to say I am not an expert I am also planning to do farming based on my observation I would like to highlight few points regarding green house and goat farming.

  1. Cost incurred to run a greenhouse ie cost of electricity, cost to change any repaired parts
  2. After 3 or 4 years you have to change the net on above which will cost you approx. 6 lakhs per acer( rate not sure)
  3. I am from tamilNadu and I use to see to lot of programs regarding agri and animal husbandry, In a program a person told that some farmers closed the green house because they could not afford to change the net in green house as there is no govt subsidy for repair.
  4. Before please calculate the expenses first, then calculate the profit from the product u produce, check if it will be feasible
  5. You can also compare shade net feasibility
  6. And always do not go by figures in paper (profits other farmers saying)
  7. There are lot of videos regarding greenhouse but you search what are the issues in green house then you can have a broad idea
  8. experts can give lot of ideas
    Goat Farming:
  9. Check what type of goat is preferred in your place or the place u r going to market
  10. In my place I spoke with a butcher and his preference is country goat because according to him other breeds will not taste good, and in most of the butcher shop they prefer country goat, and we do prefer country goat meat.
    3)Again please do not go by figures said by the goat farmers, in my observation a goat breeder(farmer) will sell the goats which he is having and if u think u will also make good profit like him u r trapped, because goat breeders business is to breed a goat and sell to peoples who want to start a goat farm, and the breeders will sell certain goats to butcher shop before certain months ex they will sell an under par goat to a butcher shop when it is still kid and not attained weight, but they will sell a good goat to u after it has attained the expected weight.
    Your business is different, you have to sell it to a customer in this case a butcher shop, where he is dependent on his clients, if he does not like the breed u have……. In tamilnadu some farms are closed because of this reason
  11. Analyze why most goat farms have failed you will get your lesson. Then analyze how farmers have succeeded u will know how to succeed.
    All these things r based on my observation I am not an expert.
