Re: I want to start Goat farming in Nashik
Goat farming (New comers):-
If you have no prior experience of goat farming,then first take training on gaot farm management.Then start from minimum number of animals ,so that if any problem,there will be less loss for you.You may start it from 20 animals for a year.If it will sucessful ,then you may rear minimum 50+2 animals for getting sucess.there are other points helping to become sucessful goat entrepreneur,they are as follows-
1)Quality animals:- Animals which can sustain in perticular climatic conditions & having proper breed character needed for goatary business.Eg- According to geographical situations,anima accustoms with environment & give production.From these animals ,selection of good quality animals.
2)Management- As the production of animal is increases according to high quality animals demand for good quality fodder,concentrate,water,housing and care is needed more .If this is not fulfilled ,then goat owner can have a loss in terms of less meat production as well as economic losses.So it is necessary for goat owner to access his strength for providing this kind of facilities for its animals.So for that if goat owner has good kind of knowledge (By training & practice)and will to do whatever work in his goat farm,then he can be profitable goat farmer.As per my knowledge this is 24 hours business & it can not be as supervisor's job.
3)Facilities:- Whatever facilities required for dairy like availability of farm land,availability of fodder throughout the year,availability of veterinarian,skill for first aid treatment,skill for feed formulation is important for goat farmer.Goat owner must provide minimum kind of facilities which are needed for his animals.
4)Market- Before producing meat or other goat product,it is better to search what are market opprtunities in your area.See if there is no any goat farm functioning in your area what are the resions behind it?If there is no any farmer who dare to take this entreprice then it is opportunity to you set up good quality of goat farm.If market is not there ,try to create your own market by creating demand for your product in the market.
5)Value addition- In business of goat farming,it is better to not to rely on only one entreprise or product eg- meat,If you do value addition in kid for weight gin in short time or good male kids for breeding purpose etc.,You will get more money,If you do value addition in goat dung by preparing vermicompost you will get more money .
So think on this aspect, Do personal visits for survey the area,try to find out market as well as study market chains developed in that perticular area.Then make decision for dairy farming .
6)To be updated- For goatowner it is necessary to aware about new practices & changes in goat farming.So for that he must take training before starting the goat or any animals related enterprise & after that timely necessary trainings to become updated .New practices,trends & changes in management will be helpfult to reduce the losses & improve production of animals.He must be adaptive & positive in nature & willing to take responcibilities or change as & when needed.
7) Keep records- Some farmers which do not have land but are successfully run their business because they keep records for feed,fodder,Meat/Milk production,Reproduction,health & management aspects.In which they can get ideas as well as point our problematic points or situatuation to avoid losses.Today,many goat farmers are not keeping records as like businessman,so they do know what is the status of the goatary they are running now.
On the above points,you may decide number of animals to be kept for goat farming which can run sucessfully.Also visit to nearest goat farms which are running their farms very well & then share the ideas with them for runing successful goat farm.
