Dear anilmaya
Presently the main goat farming scheme is Under NABARD only,providing 25% subsidy for open and 33.3% subsidy for reserved  caste,for commercial goat farming(100+5).
Small goat farming schemes are conducted by the state government like providing goats for breeding(10female and 1 male),providing free insurance,providing free vaccination,providing funds for fodder,running cost of the farms,repair and maintenance of farm buildings, machineries etc  These schemes changes from state to state,to check your sates scheme,please visit your Districts livestock development office.


Dear ari86,
Just inform to some butchers or nearby local agents regarding marketing of goats.Goats gets easily sold for meat purpose when they are sell at reasonable prices.Once nearby butchers knows that,they will get goats for meat purpose at reasonable prices from you,then surely they will buy from you continuously, as butchers have to travel from local market to market to collect their goat stock.the perfect age to sell the goats for meat is in between 5-7months,these goats gets sold even in midnight that too at high prices.The main reason is that,all the butchers wants medium goats for slaughtering purposes,which has tender meat quality.Also you can advertise in your local newspaper regarding selling of goats for meat purpose.

Dear Balaji Govindappa,
Any nationalized bank provides you loan,if you are ready to keep the collateral security like land,building,gold etc whose value should be double of loan amount.Generally bank provides loan to their old customers who have heavy transactions with their bank,there are very less chances that a bank will provide loan to new ones unless you have any reference…
Rate of interest varies from bank to bank,15%-19% and processing fee 1%-4% of project cost,which you have to pay in advance.
Yes you can bulid a farm with 1 acre of land.For more details visit my website contact@goatfarm.co.in

how can i get ppr vaccine in delhi for goats.


i want to know what to give to goats for diet and get tall and full of meat


Getting P.P.R vaccine is very easy nowadays in India.State governments are providing P.P.R and other vaccines at respective goat farms  at very minimal cost,2rs per goat.Just approach your village/districts government veterinary hospital,they will fill up the record like name,location etc and will provide you vaccine.If there are 1 or two goats they will ask to bring the goats to their hospital/clinic,and if there are more than 10 goats they will send an veterinary with you to inject this vaccine.


Goat requires a balance diet to achieve average weight gain and proper maintenance of body.
Goat eats 6%-10%of its body weight which includes green fodder,dry fodder and concentrated fodder.
A 30 kg goat will eat maximum of 3kg of fodder per day,which includes 2kg of green fodder,half kg of dry and half kg of concentrated fodder.If you you want more weight gain in lesser time you can decrease the dry fodder and increase the concentrated fodder.
Dry fodder includes-jowar plant residue,pulp of pulses remained after harvesting,silage etc
Concentrated fodder includes-100gm of maize,100 gm of tur dal husk,100gm of gram husk(mill residue),100gm of groundnut cake(DOC),100gm of cotton seed cake.

Hi Dr Sakiah, when we transport goats , when it reaches the destination do we need to provide any anti stress drugs? if so What are they? Could you suggest allopathy and the natural antistress medicines for that. Thanks


Administrating anti stress drugs depends on how much you have traveled the goats,if they are traveled for shorter duration,then there is no need to administrate.
It is always better to vaccinate your goats against P.P.P.R when they reaches destination that is new place even though they are previously vaccinated or traveled for shorter duration.
In allopathy you can provide them Melonex(oral or IM) or Nimuslide as mild antistress drugs and dexamethasone in severe cases.
Naturally you wont find any medication for anti stress.You can decrease the stress to some extent naturally by providing them highly nutritious feed that contains more amount of protein,vitamins and minerals(concentrated fodder).
