Abstract

A field study was undertaken to find out the housing management and
constraints perceived by goat rearing farmers in the tribal talukas of
Banaskantha district of North Gujarat. Majority of the tribal people had
open type of house with wooden or earthen wall or fencing and roof cover
made from earthen semicircular slats. Majority of respondents made goat
shelter along with their own dwelling. Most of respondents had roof covered
by clay tiles without manger in their goat shelters. Lack of scientific
knowledge about goat rearing, high price of concentrates, veterinary service,
and shortage of feed and fodder were the major constraints in tribal belt.
KEY WORD: Goat, Housing, Constraints, Dwelling, Floor, Roof, Clay
tiles.
