Dear Sir, Please prefer closed goat farming instead of sheep farming and increase the number of goats simultaneously. The initial cost will be 5 -6 lakhs including construction cost. You have to arrange doctor’s visit twice a month and on call he should be available in emergency. The particular climate condition is not required, but surely have to focus on their diet & sanitization.
