Abstract:

Goat rearing plays a prominent role in the rural economy in supplementing the income of rural household particularly the landless, marginal and small farmers. Goat is considered as poor man’s cow and it can be profitably being reared with low investment under semi-intensive as well as the extensive systems of management. They provide quick return on account of their short generation intervals, high rate of prolificacy and making the related products. Goat’s importance is indicated by various functional contributions like milk, meat, skin, socio-economic relevance security, income generation, human nutrition and stability of farming system. Krishi Vigyan Kendra have been playing a vital role in transfer of technology, technology dissemination of information to improve animal productivity, income, knowledge and empowering farm women. Improvement in livestock production is, therefore, an important pathway for increasing the income of farm women and landless laborers give the uncertainties of crop production. In this term Krishi Vigyan Kendra- Jaora, Ratlam conduct demonstrations during 2015-16 to 2017-18 to assess the income generation of farm women through goat rearing to find out the response of mineral mixture and concentrate feeding. The experiment shows average (90 days) highest milk yield (4174.6 g) during 2016-17, per day average highest milk yield 580.2 g (34.3%) was increased by feeding of mineral mixture.
