Pre Event Description :
Local breeds of goat are low performing comparatively pure Osmanabadi breed. KVK has planned to upgrade the local Non-descript breed.
Image: Goat rearing is the suitable business activity in the tribal areas. This is one of the most useful tools for upgrading the socio-economic status of the rural mass. Most of them are well aware with this type of activity since long, but this experience is full with rearing of low producing non-descript breeds, unscientific management, different superstitions, poor nutrition etc. Krishi Vigyan Kendra planned to introduce pure Osmanabadi breed in such area. The village Kayare, Tahasil Peth, District Nashik was surveyed and a training of Goat farmers was held on 22nd July 2016. The farmers were introduced for the extra benefits of pure Osmanabadi goat comparing to local non-descript one. They specially trained for avoiding inbreeding for healthy generations. They are mentally prepared for care and maintenance of pure Osmanabadi for better returns. KVK is planning to introduce pure Osmanabadi at their doorstep for their better livelihood.
