Goat Farming Project Report – Assumptions, Prerequisites and Suggestions:- The following are some of the assumptions and prerequisites and suggestions are considered while reading the report.
- This is a commercial goat farming project report which contains total of 150 female (Does) Sirohi goat breed and 6 male Sirohi goats (Bucks).
- Usually, any commercial goat farming takes 3 to 4 years to give you to the breakeven point. So please calculate the figures according to this plan.
- Though there is some capital cost involved in first year and profits are on negative side, subsequent years should get you into profit zone.
- We assume you already own the land hence land cost is not included. Proper location, road access, water facility are assumed.
- To grow your own green fodder for regular needs or silage needs, you must have fertile soil with proper irrigation. Buying goat feed is not advisable as it eats all of your profits.
- We assume of growth rate as 1:1 (male: female) and mortality rate (death rate) as 10% per each kidding or delivery.
- We assume, you have already visited other goat farms to study the goat fodder management and housing system, goat care and cascading male goats (bucks). Etc…
- Assume we are not adding any insurance for goats or personal vehicle You can include if you really want.

- The goat farm will initially hold 150 female goats of Sirohi breed (Does) and 6 breeding bucks (male goats).
- Feeding cost of Goats is taken @ Rs. 4–5 Rs /goat / day

Goat Farming Project Report – Growth Rate Calculation:- Now let us calculate growth rate.
- 150 Pregnant Goats (Let’s assume, we bought pregnant goats and they give kids in 2 months period)
- When comes to kidding, assume 50% of twinning and 50% of singles.
- Male (Bucks) and Female (Does) Ration is 50:50.
- This Table is Only Growth Calculator and for Calculation of 2 Years.
- Assume mortality rate (death rate) @ 10%.
- Assume 89% of fertile goats which can always expected to give birth.
- As 2 months of interval is less in last months because 16 months of young female goats (does) are ready for kidding. At the age of 10 Months, female goats (Does) are ready for mating.
Goat Farming Project Report- Growth Calculation Table:-
|2439||1143||1296||243 / 250 = 493|
|1946||973||973||10% / 11%|
