Women empowerment through goat farming in Punjab

Women are the most important segment of human resources who need attention for their development. The important indicator of female development is the work force participation of females in economic activities. In recent census, women considered as workers making significant contribution in the agricultural operations like sowing, harvesting, transplantation, tending cattle and other miscellaneous works leading to increase in work force participation rate in agricultural and related works. One of the study revealed that most of the difficult, noncash generating activities like care & management of pregnant animals & new born kids, collection and sale of manure, fodder carrying, cutting & chopping and taking animals for grazing were actively performed by 80, 76.66, 63.33 and 60 percent of rural farm women. Teaching to the rural women and formation of women goat keepers’ groups (8-10 in no.) living in the same region having 40-50 does under each group can be encouraged to uplift their socio-economic status. Hence, it is summarized that through strengthening of extension work, financial and technical support in the goat farming by government and NGO’s could lead to overcome the obstacles of rural women’s earning right from their home.
