RM HOLDINGS Sheep and Goats Farming: The livestock farm is started with a dream to use the available resources of the open land and provide a self-dependent respectful life for the rural people. It is a kind of cooperative organization, where the owners not only provide the business opportunity to rural population of the Vumilia village but guide them to breed the best livestock to get maximum possible benefits from the limited resources. An area around 100 acre has been converted into a basic livestock farm where basically two breeds of goats and sheep can be seen being breaded around the year. We have chosen to raise full-blooded goats and sheep.
It should be planned to obtain 3 kidding in 2 years period by adopting optimal management conditions.
For every 25 does one buck should be provided in one breeding season.
Breed the animals 12 hours after the onset of the first symptoms of heat for maximum conception.
Unreadable animals must be examined thoroughly as directed by veterinary doctor for prompt elimination of causes for anoestrus or cull them if necessary.
Care during pregnancy:
In advanced stage of pregnancy the does must be transferred to either kidding pens or separately earmarked space for kidding with in the main shed after thoroughly disinfecting it. After kidding, the does should be provided with warm bran mash for two days.
