Thanks

Dear Friends,

I have stopped my Sheep farming/fattening and engaged in a Manufacturing Industry. I request all blog readers, not to call/consult me for Sheep farming etc. I am busy with another work and unable to attend your enquiry. I incurred loss in goat farming and goats were not accustomed for stalfed farming, later I switched over to sheep fattening and got profits.

Thank You for following my blog.

Goat Farming with Stall-feeding

       Stall-fed goats can ideally fit into the intensive integrated farming system (IIFS). The small animals are the most efficient converters of farm and crop residues into excellent organic manure. Several farmers are successfully running stall-fed goat farms and they have found that such an integrated farming venture is most productive and profitable as well.

     Following are the reasons why Stall fed goats are more profitable than open grazed goats

1.    Conservation of Energy, which otherwise the animal would  waste its energy in hunting after the fodder. For example, a goat that has to travel farther for feed will have a higher maintenance requirement than goat in a feed lot.
2.    Better conversion of energy, available from fed and fodder into flesh and milk.
3.    Prevention of indiscriminate grazing, thereby offering optimum scope for re-growth of  fodder.
4.    Prevention of uncontrolled mating.
5.    Better collection and utilization of manure.
6.    Control and reduction of parasitic re-infestation.
7.    Close supervision and easy management.
8.    Easy access for record keeping.
9.    No danger from wild animals and predators.
