Abstract:

The present study was conducted in all the six different agro-climatic zones of Punjab to analyze the demographic profile of stall fed vis-à-vis extensive rearing goat farmers. Most of goat farmers of Group I (Stall fed) and Group II (Extensive/Grazing) were in age group of 31-60 years, followed by ≤ 30 years and then > 60 years. All the goat farmers were male. The education level of Group I goat farmers is more than Group II. However, most of the farmers of Group II in different zones were illiterate. Goat farmers in both type of rearing system are primarily surviving on goat farming, indicating the importance of adopting goat farming as main occupation instead of subsidiary occupation or side business. A large number of goat farmers in Group I, II and in overall Punjab were having medium and large families with predominant family type as Joint family; were landless. Large number of Group I, Group II and overall Punjab goat farmers belonged to Schedule caste, Backward caste and other backward caste. Different demographic parameters are inter-correlated at P < 0.01 level for Group I; and at P < 0.05 level and P < 0.01 level for Group II goat farmers. The present study highlights demographic details and the inter-relationship between different demographic parameters, which can be utilized while planning extension policies for upliftment of goat farmers following stall fed and extensive/grazing rearing system.
