Sheep & Goat Farming

Project Profile
  • Sheep are hardy animals that are suited to a wide range of conditions. They can be kept in the open for much of the year. Most important sheep product is meat, particularly lamb. Wool is a by-product and now forms less than 5 per cent of the income from sheep

  • Although India is a world leader in the production of livestock, its market for meat and meat products is small compared with that of most developed nations - most of its livestock is reared for the production of milk, eggs and wool

  • According to FAO the world production of Sheep meat was 8.63 million tones and Goat meat was 4.94 million tones in 2006. India ranked seventh in sheep and second in goat meat production. India’s export of sheep/goat meat was 5481.55 mt with the valued of Rs. 63.04 crores (USD Million 13.98) in 2006-07. .

  • The major destinations for export of Indian sheep/goat meat are Saudi Arabia, U.A.E, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait

  • Goat meat has no religious inhibitions and is consumed by all the religions and races in the country. Goat milk is source of cheap protein for the poor people and has medicinal properties. Goats are also major sources of leather and leather products in the country

  • Amongst the States, Rajasthan has the maximum number of Sheep and Jammu and Kashmir has the highest number of cross bred sheep

  • India is the seventh largest producer of wool and contributes 1.8% to total world production. The production of indigenous raw wool in 2006-07 was 45 Of the total production of raw wool, 5% is apparel grade, 85% carpet grade, and 10% coarse grade. The domestic produce is
    not adequate, therefore, the industry is dependent on imported raw material and wool is the only
    natural fibre in which the country is deficient.

  • Sheep meat consumption (and production) growth will be driven by China

  • Global Sheep meat trade flows, 2007: dominated by NZ and Australia

  • Global Lamb Exports: dominated by NZ, followed by Australia
