  • 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.
  • We assume that the manure from livestock (goats) is being used for growing green fodder or selling out side for some extra income.
  • Stylo, Dashrath, Hybrid Napier, African Tall, Sorghum, CO3, CO4, Lucern, Barseem, Molato, Gini Grass, and Subabul are best green fodder crops for goat farming project. You can make silage using the green fodder and use this nutritious silage in dry periods.
  • Recommended dry fodders are; Maize /Corn, Barley and Peanut/Ground nut.
  • Never sell or use goat milk for personal reasons. In goat breeding business, this milk is very important for goat kids at least for 3 months.
  • It is a good idea of buying pregnant goats which can deliver kids in 45 to 60 days.
  • We assume you don’t go to build an expensive goat house. We advise you to build a goat shed with minimal expenditure. Once you become successful in goat business, you can expand as per your requirement and wish.
  • It is assumed that around 89% of the goats will always give kids.
