    Default Goat Farming near Palani (Dindugul Dt.)

    Hello,
    I am Muthukumar from Doha,Qatar.Basically i am a mechanical engineering professional working in Oil & Gas field here in qatar.
    My native place is Palani.I have no agricultural background.But I am so interested in this field and i just want to be an OWN BOSS for myself.
    I am planning to set-up a small goat farm (initially) in palani or nearby village areas.I am having following basic queries in my mind.
    1.Does the climatic conditions have effects in the goat farming process? Is palani the suitable place for goat farming?
    2.How mcuh is the total area of land required including land for fodder cultivation?(if suppose to plan for 25 goats initially and expand it to max.100 in future)
    3.Which gov.dept in palani or dindugul district should i need to contact?
    4.what is the break even point? (becoz i am planning to take only a year break from my field and get involved in this farm)

    I would request all the members of this forum to suggest or give your valuable opinions.
    thanks
    -Muthu-

    1.yes the climatic conditions affects a great impact in goat farming.So you have to choose the right breed which can get easily adaptable to change i n any climatic conditions.Every place is suitable for goat farming,if you have enough green fodder in your surrounding.
    2.For 25 goats you requires at least one acre of highly fertile land to cultivate the fodder for 365 days.
    3.You have to contact the animal husbandry department of your districts.
    4.1year,probably depends on your goat farming practices how you manage them.
    For more details on goat farming,visit the longest thread of this forum-Goat Farm Solutions.

    Dear Mr.Muthu Kumar,

    I am a Retired Bank Executive, having 32 years of service in commercial banking. Now, after retirement, I opted to goat farming as this is one among the few agri related venture, giving good profit. I started my farm with 50 animals during Feb.2013, and now well settled.

    1. Climatic conditions have effects. We have to choose the breed which are suitable to our area. Palani is suitable for goat farming and Thalassery, Kanni breeds survive well.
    2. Initially, go for 50 animals, which is viable. Below this number is not viable, if we engage a labour to look after the farm.

    3. Why u want to contact Govt. Dept? If you are very particular to get a subsidy of Rs.25000/-, we have to spend more of our precious time . You can contact either Animal Husbandry Dept or Veterinary Dept, after establishing the farm.

    4. The break even point depends on the age of the animals purchased. If you buy animals aged 12 months, the break even point will be 18 months from the date of purchase of animals.

    Default Goats with Hydroponics

    Hi,
    Firstly congratulations for such a thinking.

    I run a goat farm and am implementing one more farm near Dindugal. The most challenging aspect is the availability of fodder. We have solved it by growing fodder through Hydroponics.

    I can help u to establish the goat farm and the hydroponics facility. The temperature and humidity are important. But they are manageable to some extent. The goat farm breakeven is very low and the investments are also not much.

    I am also a buyer of goats and seller of goats. Any goats available in Dindugal area or Pollachi or Palghat, I am a buyer. Any quanitity, we can buy on cash.

    regards
