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.
