Nilesh Jadhav : 
First select ur project site (it should have ample water availability to grow green fodder). Then select breeds & study about market availability. have some knowledge about the vaccination and medicine. decide on the running capacity of you farm and approach the branch manager for fund arrangements.

African boer is the best bread for meat purpose but due to unavailability it is too costly.you can chose osmanabadi or shiroi bread female and keep a good quality boer buck for production.

Nilesh Jadhav : 
boer bread can live upto 15 years.few females can give birth upto the age of 10-12 years.the economical age of female is around 6 years and buck is 3-4 years.better to replace the buck after two year to avoid inter-cross breading.

Comment: why goat milk is easy to digest due to which reason?
Wednesday December 24, 2014 6:02 webmaster

Nilesh Jadhav : 
The fat globules found in goats milk are typically smaller than those found in other animal milks, this makes them easier to 'break down' and digest in the gut.

Which breed is suitable to start goat farm in Nashik. Boer or Osmanabadi ??
Wednesday December 24, 2014 6:06 Pramod Ahire
6:10
Nilesh Jadhav : 
it depend on the climate condition.if it is dry good go for osmanabadi cross boer.and if you have budget can also keep few pure boer females.one boer buck is enough for around 40-50 females.so you can plan accordingly.you can also try shirohi as it is adjustable for many climatic conditions.

Nilesh Jadhav : 
I have started with osmanabadi goats.but now a days i cross it with boer and results are good for weight gaining in kids.after experience you can go for other india bread as well like jamunapari, barbari, shirohi, totapari, sujot, betal,etc which will pay you more on returns.

Nilesh Jadhav : 
Before ending today's section There are few points to be noted. First decide on the farm location it should be dry place but not too much of rocky to avoid accidents. then on which bread will be suitable for you farm depending on the climatic condition. decide on the flock size to start with to gain experience. and slowly expand you farm then after. there are many market opportunity even a single butcher needs 10-12 buck on daily bases in city. so monthly around 300 and we can't satisfy his months requirement with a flock size of 1000 goats. so think on it. Happy Goat farming.
