Whatever the case, If you are planning for commercial goat farming, you must know the fact that the initial investment would be more and you may not able afford this. Goat farmers should also understand the fact that they reach break-even point only after 2 or 3 year and subsequent years would be profitable. Central government of India and Various state governments are encouraging Indian goat farmers under various agriculture schemes and goat farming is one of them.

To uplift the poor in rural areas and to develop and provide employment, there are some subsidies provided by these schemes. The goat farming or rearing business in India is primarily carried out in the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan, Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Kashmir and West Bengal as these states have the terrain and climate suitable for goat farming business. These state governments announced goat farming business subsidy schemes in association with local banks and NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development).

Before going in detail of subsidy and loan information, ask yourself why you should choose goat farming?. Well, the answer for this question is given below.

  • Goats milk also nutritious when compared to cow milk
  • Farmers can make some extra income by selling goat manure.
