Selective three blocks were identified and from each talukas 10 goat farmers were selected to make a sample size total 60. An ex-post facto research design was used to access the information and data were collected by using structured questionnaire through personal dialogue method. A total of five major areas were assessed viz. feeding management, breeding management, care and management, health care and management and marketing and miscellaneous. Among five major areas 49 sub areas of goat management practices were assessed to know the information needs of the goat farmers. The responses for information needs of the goat farmers were retrieved on three point scale viz. most needed, needed and least needed. The frequency and percentage of each minor area was calculated. Ranking of major and minor areas was done by using total weighted mean score. The results indicated that breeding management (2.57) was perceived as the major areas for information need followed by care and management (2.54), health care management (2.35), marketing and miscellaneous (2.34) and feeding management (2.24).
