Hi Vikas Sir,
To start a goat farm you will need to study following factors,

  1. Infrastructure
  2. Finance
  3. Breed
  4. Market

1. Infrastructure : That is the shade required for Goats. This will also need your own space / land to build which you will need to manage. please check following kind of shade, which is easier to build, depending upon your plan you can built a small shade or bigger one.

[ click on image or check link from The Hindu for “Goat shed that is easy to build and dismantle” ]
2. Finance – You need to understand how much money / budget you have of your own depending on, please talk to your areas national banks like SBI etc, to identify how much loan they can give for goat farming. This will be depending upon the documents banks need and you can provide. You can also check with Nabard bank branch in your area. Please check article from Nabard website.
3. Goat Breed – For this you will need to take help from following people,
   1. contact your nearest Krushi Vigyan Kendra ( KVK ) and talk to them to understand what kind of breeds are good in your environment.
   2. contact existing goat farming business’s and visit their sheds, you can also take their consultancy to identify and purchase goats. You can find some goat farms at http://www.greenecosystem.in/fconn/goat-sheep-farm
4. Market – While you talk with KVK, or consultants please check where the market is for the goats, how far is the market, what kind of pricing you will get in those markets.
For Quotation, as we don’t sell goats, we will be unable to provide the same. Please talk with peoples as mentioned in this to understand how much budget could go.

Hi Mr. Vikas, Sorry for the delay. We will check and reply soon.

Hi Mr. Vikas, as per our source of Information, there are chances that since goat farming is based on land which needs to be cultivated to produce food for goats, hence since you do not own land, they might be rejecting the application. Another way, is if you can find a business partner who has agriculture land on basis of which you can seek a loan from Nabard and you look after all commercial and operational aspects of Goat farming. Thanks
