Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out in two blocks of Nabarangpur district of Odisha. 120 respondents were selected randomly having minimum 10 numbers of goats with 5 years of experience in goat rearing. The overall mean score (34.43) of economic impact showed a positive sign for the economic prosperity. The study revealed that 69% of the respondents had medium level of economic impact due to goat farming followed by 18% and 13% respondents with high level and low level of economic impacts respectively. The economic success of goat husbandry depends on the availability of resources within the household. So, Government should take steps to popularize goat rearing in mass media, regular training and exposure visits to nearby successful farms and provide necessary financial support to the farmers. Some scientific practices must be followed in order to enhance the economic growth of the goat farmers.
