Abstract:
Goat rearing in the tribal areas provides income and nutritional security of the farmers besides improving social status. The present study was carried out to find out whether the social status of goat farmers has improved due to goat farming. For this study, Kandhamal District of Odisha was selected due to high concentration of goat population. Sixteen villages from four blocks of the district were selected randomly and from each village seven goat farmers were selected constituting the sample size of 112. Ex-post facto research design was used for this study and data were collected with the help of pre-tested interview schedule. The collected data were edited tabulated and analyzed using suitable statistical tools i.e. frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation and Pearson’s coefficient of correlation. The study revealed that 74.10% of the respondents had medium level of social impact due to goat farming followed by 13.4% and 12.5% respondents were having high and low level of social impact, respectively. It was further found that the goat farmers’ age was negatively and education was positively correlated with social impact of goat rearing whereas number of goat owned by the beneficiaries is positively and significantly correlated with social impact on farmers.
