Availabilty of young goats for a Goat farm in Kerala

Please advise me as to which are the types of goats suitable for the Northern Region of Kerala (Wayanad district). 

 Where can I buy young goats of Jamunabari, Boar, and Osmanabadi breeds in bulk for this purpose? I already have a running goat farm in kerala.
