How do you market your Live sheep in around Bangalore


#1

Hello friends,

We are in the process of starting 500 capacity sheep/goat farm, which is in Anantapur 180 kms from Bangalore.
To provide proper and healthy shelter for sheep, Currently building elevated platform with 5 feet height and the platform will be hygienic and have good standard. Can build nice shelter and provide healthy fodder to sheep but no proper marketing then the project will be chaos.

I am requesting all experienced in rearing sheep or goats,  please share your experience in marketing the sheep in around Bangalore. 
Also share your thoughts/ideas how can we sell directly to the people.

Thanks in advance,
Bhanu

Hi,

Best time to sell your Sheep/Goats will be EID ,and if you are looking at 500 sheep kind of operation you do not have to worry as even one butcher will buy 500 sheep in a year. in fact you will not be able to supply one butcher also if he sells 2 Sheep a day.

I will suggest you to increase your stall size month on month so you will also be able to supply all through the year.
You have Vehicles coming from ananthapur to Bangalore market every week, so you will not have problem in transporting them from there to Bangalore.

If you want some butchers contact in Bangalore i can help you out with that. An average Mutton Stall in Bangalore sells around 10 Sheep a week . They will more than happy to find some regular supplier ,

Since you will have weight loss in transporting live sheep ,I will advice you to take a small Shed here in Bangalore where you can provide 2-3 days or recovery time for the sheep so they regain the weight loss and then supply to the Butcher,This will decrease your Weight Loss. Every KG weight loss is around Rs.300 .

Good luck

Many thanks Goutham,

Our initial setup of the shed and farm is designed for 500 sheep at a time, So yearly i believe the capacity will be something like 1500+ .  Already heavily invested very near to Anantapur town including the hydroponic fodder and Elevated platform for 500 sheep.

Many thanks for offering  the help for butchers contact, i will send you PM.

One more thing do you believe the sheep will lose weight during transport, the distance is between Anantapur to Bangalore is only 200 kms?

Yes 1 KG weight loss is normal, This not only due to travel but also because of  change location  and stress .

Thanks Goutham,

We supply directly to butchers in Bangalore then what cost we can expect for Live weight ?
Someone have any experience in this field please come back to me, your advice will be much appreciate.

Thanks in advance,
Bhanu

Hai Banu,

NIce to see your efforts. Is elevated platform already constructed or yet to construct. And if you provide the cost analysis of your sheep project, it will be a great help to the forum members.

Thanks

Very encouraging effort Bhanu, best wishes for your success.
Based on our earlier email exchanges, you are probably aware that while demand is plenty, price will be the key factor when trying to sell in blore. Have you reached out and made a list of butchers in Blores who will buy goats (live) at a favorable rate - Rs 350+ /kg? This might be a critical part of your marketing plan.

Blore and other large south Indian cities receive daily truck loads from Maharastra, AP, Gujrat, UP, Rajasthan, etc. Prevailing rates in those states is very low and will be in direct competition with your (and other similar stall fed) goat operations. Keep us posted of your experiences in Blore, good luck! :slight_smile:

Resp SSSI,
The beetle goats are a very good milk and meat goats. At yamuna goat farms, hirehalli, Mysore each beetle goat is giving milk @ 4ltrs per day.

Sirohi goats are very good meat breed. Also both varieties are fast growing animals. We will come and purchase some goat kids.

Best wishes for maintaining and selling good breeds.

With best wishes,  g.p.Rao,  farmer
