Goat rearing

Posts about Goat rearing

Can this example apply to the youth in addition to what is already done.

PRADAN is promoting goat-rearing programmes in Rajasthan and Orissa. As with other PRADAN initiatives, the focus is on assisting women in optimizing their livestock resources. This becomes necessary given that in these project areas, goat rearing is characterized by the use of poor breeds and unscientific husbandry practices that result in low incomes and high morbidity and mortality risks.

Help to set up goat rearing project

Status: In progress

The goat project commenced in April, 2009 with 6 goats, and shortly after a few months, the goats began giving birth at intervals with some giving birth to twins. This brought the total number to 11 goats within a period of six months. However, one kid was knocked down by an over speeding cyclist reducing the number to 10. In January 2010, the youth bought more three adult goats with funds resulting from the youth’s crafts sold by Esther and Maria in Europe between October to December, 2009. This has increased the number from 10 to 13 goats.

project room - a room for updates and new ideas

Status: In progress

Please post your ideas/advice here that you have for the project, if there is not a task for it already. The project has started very recently and is looking for further ideas of income generation and training.

Hi Sonja, Virginia, and other Neighbors

Thanks so much for the contribution!! Well I think it will be wise for us to first acquire land for the project just like what you suggested. I believe if we are to rent, we are likely to spend more than what will have been spent on buying a piece of land in a period of one year!! But still the tricky question is how shall we raise the money? The project activities will run smoothly if this is acquired surely! Thanks for the good advice though we still have to combine ideas and see how this can be achieved.

Choose A Need

Eric was pleased to find out that ChooseAneed has accepted our application for a project!

Hi Emmanuel and neighbours,
I did some research on the internet. And found some usefull links.

The first one is about goat farms. There are some tips on the website and maybe there is a possibility to join the give a goat project? Or approach a funding organisation? The Mukwano project is a Nabuur project so maybe we can get their help to develop the goat breeding business? http://www.belastingvrij.org/projecten/nabuur/Kakabada.htm

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for your advise!! For the SWOT analysis, find the attached file in MS word format. We are also trying to draft a business plan as a team. We will require neighbors to assist in making additions and subtractions in our write up. Otherwise for now I wish you all the best, and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Hi Neighbors,

The Youth are interested in Poultry keeping and Cross bred goat farming. We therefore invite Neighbors with useful resources to help the Village develop their ideas into a feasible business plan that will be implemented in the area.

Best Regards,

Write a business plan and prepare a financial budget

Status: Finished

The Village wants to start to generate income through farming (poultry, goats, piggery) and vegetable growing. Help the village to finalise the business plan and to assess its strengths and weaknesses. The financial budget should contain the initial costs of purchase as well as the expected profits and their expected evolution.
Wakitaka has an initial budget of 1000USD that should now be invested as profitable as possible. Any accounting and business specialists, you are more than welcome to give advice.
