Abstract:
The present study was conducted in 100 randomly selected goat farmers from the Androth and Kavaratti islands of Lakshadweep. The results of the present study indicate that the majority of the goat farmers from Lakshadweep were men (60.0 percent) belonging to the age group of 50 to 62 years (34.0%), 57.0 percent of the farmers belonged to the joint family and they were having an experience of 1 to 11 years (67.0%) and 93.0 percent of the farmers were educated in goat farming. The study revealed that only a few farmers (3.0%) had received formal training on goat rearing. The majority (67.0%) of the farmers are rearing goats as inheritance and only 7.0 percent practiced goat farming as self-employment. Only 10.0 percent of the farmers reported that they had annual income from goat rearing. This was one of the pioneer studies conducted among goat farmers in Lakshadweep Island.
