 In this kind of fodder production,good crop rotation is necessary as it will  maintain soil fertility .It is also good to keep grazing land other than fodder crops for goat farming.

 

Land required for shed:-

For 50+2 animals, shed should have length of 40 feets and breadth of 70 feets .

Space requirement under shed for for different category of animals:-

Kids- 0-3 months:- 4-6 sq/ft,   Kids 4-6 months:- 6-8 sq.ft ,Kids-6-9 months:- 8-10 sq.ft, Kids above 9 months:- 12 sq.ft

Adult goats:- 12 sq/ft, Pregnant does:- 16-20sq.ft, lactating does:- 16-20 sq ft, Breeding Buck- 20-25 sq.ft

 

For 50+2 goats, two to there skilled persons are required for feeding,grazing,keeping records,first aid,Marketting of kids etc. 

Goat require grasses as well as concentrates for feeding,on sole concentrate fedding will not cader the need of nutrition for goats.Also it will cause health problems due to deficiency of energy and othe minerals.

However it is better you to take training on goat farming which will give you the exact basic rules of goat farming.
