The project is related to setting up goat fattening farm in which, young goats preferably males are raised on nutritionally balanced feed or Total Mixed Ration (TMR) to get the targeted weight gain of greater value. These goats are grown in groups and each batch stays on farm for a period of 120 days. The expected live body weight gain ranges between 120 - 140 grams/day. Higher yields are achievable with better farm management and better quality breeds such as Teddy for meat production.

Goats are raised in rural and semi-urban areas where there is abundance of fresh water, fodder and natural vegetation. The fattened goats are sold primarily in livestock markets (mandies). A farm of maximum capacity for 660 goats per annum is suggested in this pre-feasibility study as a viable economic size to enter this business. Total estimated investment of Rs. 2.31 million is required with fixed investment of Rs. 0.51 million and working capital of Rs. 1.80 million (the working capital is for one batch of goats). The Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) & payback period of the project are 48%, Rs. 7.28 million and 2.23 years respectively. The proposed project is a soleproprietorship.
