The present study was conducted to know the various constraints faced by different stakeholders in marketing of goat as well as chevon. An ex-post facto research was conducted in Bidar and Kalaburagi districts of Kalyana Karnataka. Three markets from each district and 10 sellers, 10 buyers/butchers and 5 middlemen from each selected market were selected, making a sample size of 60 sellers, 60 buyers/butchers and 30 middlemen. The data was tabulated and analyzed using simple statistics. Major constraints of goat farmers were low market price, exploitation by middlemen and unscientific methods of price fixation. Constraints faced by middlemen were disease prevalence in goats, problems in transportation and regulations in animal market. Major constraints of butchers were exploitation by middlemen, transportation regulations and disease prevalence in goats. Study concluded that training programmes to be implemented for scientific goat management and scientific slaughter practices and scientific price fixation should be encouraged.
