Abstract:
The paper discusses the investment pattern adopted by goat keepers across various flock size categories of Rajasthan. Goat farming is a profitable and sustainable enterprise for tribal people due to its low capital investment and recurring costs, quick return and low risk, and adaptability to harsh climatic conditions. Thus, it is critical to understand that the socioeconomics of goat farming is required before embarking on any major intervention to improve or develop the farming. A total of 160 respondents were selected for present study. The investment per goat varies with flock size from Rs. 11586.08 (small category) to Rs.15571.02 (large category). Out of the total investment the investment on goats was highest in all categories followed by shed and equipments in the study area. In the study area the goat farmers between 5 to 18 goats were considered as a small flock size; more than 40 goats were considered as a large flock size and between 18- 40 animals were classified as medium flock size. On an average, total number of goats per household was 13, 33 and 65 in small, medium and large flock size respectively, with an overall average 36 goats per flock size.
