Abstract:

Goats are among the main meat producing animals in India. Along with chevon, goats also provide other products like milk, skin, fibre and manure. Increasing demand for chevon and goat milk has attracted majority of the farmers towards goat farming. Multipurpose potential with good economic returns has encouraged the educated youth, ladies, businessmen and progressive farmers to take up the goat enterprise on a commercial scale. Goat farming in India has low productivity which may be attributed to the lack of scientific knowledge. Training programmes are a source to bridge the gap between management practices followed by the farmers and the available scientific technologies. Keeping this in view, the impact of training programmes on knowledge gain of goat farmers was studied. Suitable duration of goat training programme is must for desired results. The frequencies of short duration training programmes should be increased to benefit goat farmers. Knowledge level of farmers towards goat farming was low and there was a significant improvement in their knowledge after attending training on various aspects of goat rearing. The knowledge of respondents was found enriched in various management practices. Specialized training programmes are playing an important role for knowledge up gradation and hence improving the socio-economic conditions of the goat farmers. Lack of knowledge was one of the main factors restraining in adoption of scientific goat farming. The scientific knowledge about any enterprise is crucial for its success. Regular need based specialized goat training programmes must be offered to update farmers with latest technologies.
