    Stall Fed Goat Farming

    Stall-fed goats can ideally fit into the intensive integrated farming system. The small animals are the most efficient converters of farm and crop residues into excellent organic manure. Several farmers have successfully run stall-fed goat and sheep farms, and they have found that such an integrated farming venture was more productive and profitable as well.

    Goat farming needs less capital when compared with dairying and the animals can be raised in small farm or land. Stall-fed goat farming is an ideal occupation for the small, marginal and landless agricultural labourers.

    A few exotic goats such as Saanen, Toggenburg, Angora, Anglo-Nubian, British Alpine, French Alpine have been found to be well adapted to Indian conditions, and they are crossed with superior Indian breeds to geed progeny. The popular Indian breeds are Sirohi, Sojat, Jamunapari, Surti, Tellicherry, Beetal, Malabari, Barbari etc. The milch-type animals are ideal for integrated farming system.

    I have started goat farming with 15 desi breads for leaning and testing and are on stall fed with comparatively good diet. However I have doubt on quality between my goat and local people feeding on free grazing. Would I get back my investment?
