In goat fattening farm, goats preferably males from a specific breed such as beetal, teddy or Nachi are raised on nutritionally balanced feed to get targeted weight gain in a specified time. These goats are fattened in groups and each batch stays on farm for a period of 100 days. The first two general batches would raise goats with daily live body weight gain of 150 grams/ day, however, the goats fattened for sacrificial purpose for Eid-Ul-Azha would be having daily weight gain of 200 grams/ day in third batch. Higher weight gains may be achieved with better
farm management and through selection of breed and nutritious feeds. The project is proposed to be located in peri urban areas around metropolitan cities like Lahore, Multan, Bahawalpur, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi, Karachi, Hyderabad, Quetta, Ziarat, Peshawar, D.I. Khan etc. which are major markets of meat. The rural and peri-urban areas around the major cities with abundant water and availability of fodder make a better choice for farming; provided access to livestock mandies and veterinary services is ensured. Goats are sold in urban markets normally in livestock markets (Mandies) or the whole batch may be sold to interested parties.

A farm of 450 goats per annum is suggested in this pre-feasibility study; the farm will start its production at 100% capacity from the very first year of production. An estimated investment of Rs. 7.35 million is required, out of which capital investment is Rs. 5.17 million and working capital is Rs. 2.18 million. The Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) & payback period of the project are 44%, Rs. 9.17 million and 2.45 years respectively. The project is proposed to operate as a sole-proprietorship.

The most critical considerations or factors for success of the project are background knowledge and related experience for the application of good husbandry practices such as timely feeding, watering and vaccination so as to ensure animal’s health and disease-free environment. Awareness about the supply and demand of goats in the market both for meat purpose and sacrificial purpose with efficient marketing of the project and bulk supply to wholesalers would be a milestone for achievements in the proposed business.
