In Dungarpur district of Rajasthan, the current study was carried out deliberately chosen, taking into account the fact that the district has the largest population of tribal and goat populations. Two Tehsils out of Five Tehsils, i.e. Bichhiwara and Dungarpur were chosen because of the high population density of goats and the more reliable livelihood of goat farmers. Two villages were selected from each of the panchayats, thereby selecting a total of eight villages. Therefore, 20 respondents from each selected village were selected at random. 160 goat keepers were the total sample size for this analysis. Although the research was conducted on the distribution of management activities such as feeding, washing, milking, grazing, sales of cattle, young stock care, breeding, sick animal care, ecto-parasites and endo-parasites.
