Abstract:
Goat farming is a crucial component of the agricultural landscape in Akola District, Maharashtra, playing a significant role in the livelihoods of local farmers. This study delves into the feeding management practices employed by goat farmers and examines their impact on the socio-economic status of these farmers. Proper feeding and management are essential for ensuring the health, productivity, and overall well-being of goats, and thus, their farmers. By exploring the various feeding practices adopted by goat farmers, this research assesses their implications for the socio-economic status of these farmers. However, despite the potential for successful goat farming in the region, there has been a noticeable decline in goat productivity. This study investigates the underlying reasons for this decline, with a specific focus on feeding management practices. The research was conducted over a two-month period from March to April 2023, employing various data collection methods, including interview schedules, interviews, and direct observations. The methodology covers key aspects, such as the research location, climatic conditions, selection of respondents, construction of interview schedules, measurement of independent variables, data collection, tabulation, and statistical analysis. The study seeks to understand the adoption of recommended scientific management practices by goat farmers and their impact on the socio-economic status of the farmers and the broader goat farming sector. The findings underscore the pressing need for a comprehensive approach to goat farming that includes improved feeding practices, education, and resource management to enhance the health, productivity, and economic sustainability of goat farming in the region.
