Goat Farming a Profitable Business in India

Goat farming business in India would be a great choice if it is done in the precise and planned way. There are many people out there who want to be an entrepreneur in this field and they want to start profitable business in goat farming but due to lack of knowledge, experience and business plan they could not make the better outcome as it could be if it is done in the systematic way.

I receive lots of emails from Indians living abroad on how to setup a goat farm back home here in India. This is the reason I have updated this blog post with latest information. I have written almost 10 articles about various types of goat breeds for commercial goat farming, you can read all articles here.

Below is very valuable information on how to start goat farming, you should read and follow each and every steps.

I too own a goat farm in Jharkhand raising different breeds so I thought to write this post to help those who eagerly wants to start this business. There are several steps and measure to start a successful goat farm i would be covering every aspect so that anyone who is a newbie or beginners can have a step by step idea to start this profitable business in every state of India such as UP, MP, Jharkhand, Bihar, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, etc.

7 Steps that need to be taken before starting a goat farm.

1. Selection of land where you are willing to start a goat farm

Selection of land to start goat farming is the very first step you are going to take. There is no any hard and fast rule to stick with the land selection whatever the land you have is good to go or it would be better if you have surplus land at the city out skirt with the greenery and grazing area.

In my case I have only 32 decimile of land with enormous grazing field out of which i am using 21 decimile for shed and fenced area and remaining for the servant quarters as you must provide the rooms for the care-taker who are going to stay there 24×7.

Do the proper fencing of the land with the boundary wall  or bamboo fencing but i would suggest for the brick and cemented boundary provide more security to the place or it could be your choice mainly it depends on the surrounding and the security concern of the farm.now you have a good fence i.e the boundary wall with the proper entrance. Now it is the time for goat shed construction.

2. Goat shed construction plan

A proper cleaned, hygienic and spacious shed is required for the better growth of your goats. Depending upon your land area,expenditure and farm strength the shed area may vary. As in my case i have a shed for 100 goats for which i have used 60×18 feet(i.e 60 feet of length and 18 feet is width. )

The dimension of the shed depends on your choice whether it could be less or more as i mentioned but i would suggest to give a try with the smaller strength i.e shed for 100 goats.

In general it is being suggested that for one goat there must be 10sq ft. Area is needed but this can be less or more mainly it depends on the breed and age of goat whether it is adult or kid.

I assume you have selected your dimension of the shed now its time to build the shed. Use bricks and cement for the shed wall. 12 feet of height must be maintain and a proper ventilation is needed. For the roof area use better quality of asbestos which is good heat absorbent in summer.

Create one water reservoir or cemented tank to provide fresh drinking water supply to goats every time. it should be outside of the shed area. Build a bamboo fence out side the shed for proper movement of the goats.

Proper cemented or steel stall is required for the goat feeding it must be inside or outside the shed.

So as to summarize:

Shed construction plan for 100 goats:

  1. Shed dimension in my case it is 60×18 feet.
  2. Wall height is 12 feet.
  3. Bamboo fence outside the shed.
  4. Material used for shed is brick,cement and asbestos.
  5. Cemented tank for the fresh drinking water for goats (Outside the shed inside the bamboo fence)
  6. Bore well equipped with motor or submersible pump for the fresh drinking water for the goats.
  7. Feeder stall may be cemented or steel menzer for feeding. Have long cemented feeding stall inside the shed and steel menzer or feeder for outside feeding.

3. Selection of Goats Breed

Goats breed selection is very important aspect in the goat farm as this is the main asset of your business which is going to give your business a boom and a good uplift. Selection of breed is very important point in profitable goat farming business plan.

There are different breeds out there which is considered as profitable breed selection basically it depends on the region and climate there are many breeds available but i am covering some of them which is considered profitable for north india region. They are categorized in two part.

Pure Breed Selection.

  • Sirohi
  • Jamnapari
  • Tota Pari
  • Barbari
  • Beetel
  • Black Bengal

Cross Breed Selection.

  • Cross breed of sirohi and black bengal (sirohi buck and black bengal doe)
  • Cross breed of jamnapari and sirohi (jamnapari buck and sirohi doe)
  • Cross breed of black bengal and beetel. (beetel buck and black bengal doe)

There may be a number of cross breed selection depends upon the breed of Buck and Doe.The rule of thumb in breed selection is the environmental and climatic condition where the breed is best suited for. For example:

4. Learn cross breed concept in goats

Sirohi  the goat breed of sirohi district of rajasthan is well suited with the Rajasthan hot and dry climatic condition. If you want to raise pure sirohi breed in different region of india apart from the rajasthan the mortality rate increases because of the climatic condition with which they are not adapted to.

But what if we want Sirohi breed in our farm. As in my case i have Sirohi breed too, here comes the Cross Breed Concept. 

All you need a cross breed Sirohi i.e take a female mother goat(doe) of your area. For example in Jharkhand climates are very hot in summer and chilled in winter the Black Bengal breed is well adapted with Jharkhand climate.

So take black bengal doe and sirohi Buck the first cross of the product would be 70% sirohi or 30% black bengal (Note:the percentage genetical behaviour may vary depends on the mating breed.) Now this breed would be well adapted with the jharkhand climate.same apply with the other breeds too.

In my farm i am having cross breed of sirohi and black bengal, cross breed of sirohi and beetel.which is very profitable.

Here i will be covering in details about every breed.for detailed information on different breed of goat click on the respective link.

Check out below links for more information on goat breed

sirohi goat breed

Jamunapari goat breed

Beetal goat breed

Barbari goat breed

Osmanabadi goat breed

5. Learn about vaccination schedule

Proper Scheduled Vaccination is very important to overcome the mortality rate in goats. Here i will be covering every vaccine shedule which is i am following in my farm.

After goat purchase and before entering into the goat farm deworming is compulsary and following vaccine must be scheduled.

The Common vaccine schedule prescribed by doctors are:

  • FMD(Foot and Mouth disease) vaccine name is polyvalent FMD vaccine given once in a year dosage is 3ml. S/C given in february & December.
  • Anthrax vaccine name is anthrax spore vaccine given once in a year dosage is 1 ml.S/C in the month of May -june
  • ET(Enterotoxemia) vaccine name is ET Vaccine once in a year dosage is 5 ml.S/C in the month of May – june
  • CCPP(Contagious Caprine Pleuro Pneumonia) or IVRI Vaccine dosage is 0.2 ml S/C once in a year.
  • PPR(Peste Des Pettis Ruminants) or PPR Vaccine with a dosage of 1ml S/C given once in a 3 Year.

6. Fodder planning for Goats

Goat fodder plan is very important aspect of the goat farming a proper fodder plan and cost management of fodder is required to make good profit in this goat farming business. Here in this section i will discuss how to make an effective fodder to boost your goats growth in lesser time also i will discuss the different feeding  style like complete stall fed system and partial stall fed system.

In addition with the dry fodder green fodder is very important to provide essential nutrients to the goats. Grazing of goats is very important for this you must have a surplus grazing area with greenery so as for proper movement of the goats which helps in their digestion and enhance metabolism.

Generally in my goat farm i prefer partial stall fed system that is goats are given dry fodder or booster in the stall fed condition and freed for grazing from morning 11 to 3 noon. Then they enter the farm and again stall fed.

How to make goat dry fodder ? The composition and Preparation Technique. To make fodder of 100 kg following are the ratio of composition (Note: I am using local regional language to describe the ingredients so as to benefit the regional readers.)

  1. Chokar   –  45 kg
  2. Makai Darra – 25 kg
  3. Badam Khalli – 15 kg
  4. Korai (Chana chilka) – 12 kg
  5. Mineral Mixture – 2 kg
  6. Salt – 1 kg

These are the ratio which i am using and getting the positive result also the growth of the goats in farm is very high in almost 8 month kids become adult and acquire the maximum weight. This is the 100 kg ratio and may be used in any amount of fodder preparation.

This fodder must be mixed with kutti in half ratio and given. For example if kutti is 1 kg then mix this  ½ kg fodder. Under the partial stall fed condition hence the almost all nutrients supplied by grazing this concentrate with kutti given twice a day i.e morning and evening 1 ½ kg twice for one goat means 3 kg every day (2 kg kutti and 1 kg concentrate).

Apart from this concentrate green fodder is also very important provide the goats with green fodder every day or leave them for grazing. There are many things to discuss and need to be cover hence i will write every topic in different post this was the only general idea you must stick with to start a goat farm.

7. Minimise risk factors

You have to plan everything properly and one important factor for profit in goat farming is to minimise the risks involved in this business. I have written a separate article on how to minimise the risks in goat farming here. You must read this article before starting goat farming business.


  1. I want to set up a goat farm in dhanbad, jharkhand asap. I m beginner in this field so, i need a good consultant/farm to help me to start up the same with proper guidance.
    Also, need the estimate to set up 100 nos having 1 acre land in rupees.

    • Hi,

      I appreciate your keen interest in setting up a goat farm. expert-market would be your best farm consultant who will further guide you in your every steps. it is good to know that you have surplus 1 acre of land which is all enough to start with the 100 goats however i would suggest you to start with the 50 doe(mother goats) which would act as the breeding unit and 50 male kid (6 month old) which would be sold after 6-7 months to maintain farm expenditure at the beginning.

      First set up your mind and become a goat lover that you are gonna run your own goat farm then go ahead with the shed construction plan with proper security concern and fencing you would be provided with the cost estimation of the farm with 100 units in a email from our support team. later our team would contact you to provide you with every necessary steps and guidance.


      • Hi sir
        I am planing to start a goat farm for meat purpose in dist. Bijnor UP .I have enough Farming land around 10 acers, apart from this a shed 60×17 feet with 1/2 Acer of grazing land just outside the village.I think this location is perfect for goat Farming on stall feed system.
        This is really a good idea to start with 50 doe and 50 male kid to maintain the farm expenditure at the beginning.I will do the same
        Thanks for this brilliant idea

      • Sir
        Want to start a goat farm. And I want to know about is full stall feeding system is profitable or not.. And what is feeding cost of per goat per day..?
        means I want to know about loss and profit calculations of goat farming with stall feeding system… Location is west Rajasthan..

  2. Goat farming in India is very profitable and one can make good profit in this business because of high availability of grazing area. If you are looking to start this business then select a location which is nearer to target city. Start constructing shed and raise 50 goats at startup. Save money in feeding by using grazing land.

    Goat farming in india has very huge potential, you can easily make 20lakh a year if you know how to market your product and find a buyer for your product. Hotels, hospitals, party, wedding, etc will be your target market. Stop thinking and take action!!!

  3. I want to start a goat farm in jharkhand (Palamu, Latehar district), need consultancy and support at planning and execution level.

    • Hi Sanjay,

      I appreciate your keen interest in setting up a goat farm in Jharkhand, please follow the instructions given above to get started. Let me know you budget for setting up farm and provide some info on availability of land in your area.

      We can also help you in getting subsidy for goat farming from nabard in Jharkhand.


      • I am planning to start a Large Scale (4000- 5000 goats) Goat farming in West Bengal. How much land (grazing land and shade) is required for 5000 goats for meat purposes? What is the risk of this business? I do not need Bank Loan hence How much capital I need intially if I start with 100 goats?

  4. Dear Sir,

    We are yet to start our organized goat farm at Bokaro, Jharkhand. We have got training from Mr. Deepak Patidar, Indore and got very much information from there and studies on net. As per Mr. Deepak Patidar we should go mainline like Sirohi, Sojat. We are planning for this.

    We are also planning for cross breeding of Female of Black Bengal goats but for better result we are unable to choose male side.

    Some were suggesting BB (F) with Sirohi and some are suggesting BB(F) with Beetel or Barbari.

    We will oblige if you give some information and suggestion regarding this.

    With regards
    Manoj Kumar

    • Hi Manoj,

      I appreciate your good effort. its good to know that you are going to start an organized goat farm and also you have done an expert training on this.
      for cross breeding, what i would suggest you to go with the fine breed of Black Bengal(doe) with the Sirohi Buck or BB(Doe) with Beetal(Buck).i wouldn’t suggest you BB with Barbari. go ahead with these cross breeding you would get a better result. also let me know your farm progress and discuss your important farm aspects which will help our reader who wants to start a goat farm.

  6. I am interested in setting up a goat farm in chakradharpur jharkhand near jamshedpur.
    I would like to know if black Bengal x beetal is a good option or pure black Bengal. I will mainly stall feed and want to start with 50 pregnant females.
    Also need to know where I can purchase good quality BB goats and the cost per animal.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Warm Regards
    Andre leavers

    • Hi Andre,

      its good to hear from you again,though the Black bengal’s demand is huge in the local market here specially in bihar and jharkhand people mentality is like they want desi breed they consider their meat is good in taste hence raising pure breed of BB would be profitable but their growth is slower as compare to other breed. and you said you wanna go with the stall feed system only there growth rate would be slower bcoz Black bengal needs more grazing area for their normal growth rate. so your first choice is good that is Black bengal x Beetal go for it.also i would suggest you to have some BB too so as to test with the stall feed system specially their growth rate.
      For Good quality Black Bengal you can go to Balrampur cattle fair(once in a week) its in west bengal near purulia dist.
      Or you can also contact us(through email) for various goat breed including BB. for price and more info you can contact us via email.( info@expert-market.com)

    Thank you

    • Very good planning Manish, as the profit rule of thumb in goat farming is to save your feeding cost i think in 1 acre of land is sufficient for fodder cultivating and it is really a good idea. you can have list of crop sown in particular month so that you can grow surplus crop for your farm

  10. Hi,
    First of all congratulations on your successful goat farming.
    I am from Nashik, Maharashtra and very keen in starting goat farming. But I dont have any prior experience in it. Currently I am working with IT company in Pune. I am planning quit job and start goat farm in Nashik.

    I have 3 acres of farm land currently under cultivation. So I need your advice as to how I should start i.e. from developing land for constructing shed, compound wall. I wan to start goat farm with 100 goats. So what will be the best breeds for Nashik.

    Also please tell how I can maintain security of goats against theft as my home is 25 km away from my farm. Your suggestions will really help a lot. Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Sagar,

      Greetings from expert market. we value your passion to become an entrepreneur in this field. it really sounds good that you are so eager in this profession that you are ready to quit your job for real cause, i appreciate it. all you have to do is to take action.

      Trust me you have excess land to start a goat farm. its simple to start with 1 acre for goat farm and 1 acre for cultivating crop for goats fodder to minimize there feeding cost.

      make your mind that you are going to do this.
      do the proper fencing of land.
      go for shed construction.
      do proper fencing for cultivated land to grow there fodder.

      you must build your servant quarter to take care of the goats in your absence as your home is 25 km away.

      • Thank you very much support team for replying to my queries. Really appreciate that.

        Can you please provide information on below my questions ?

Thank you in advance.
