Goats bring good income to five million business families in India. It’s now no more bonanza time due to COVID-19 “effect” and loss of jobs in India. The demand for goat meat is slow and lower. On the other hand India needs to double goat population in about 10 years from now. Governments in almost all the countries used to be encouraging goat rearing. But no country considered this question: “
Where from the goats bring income during the pandemic?” However, Muslims have blessed Eid-ul-Azha. And in this Festival, the Muslims sacrifice Goats and Cows in large numbers under any circumstances.
Over the past 50 years, Goat meat costs increased year after year. It’s because land available for grazing has shrunk by half. “Leave aside the world, if India never secures pastures, goats might turn from an asset to a liability”. Said an expert economist. India never understands the high demand for goat meat as goats bring good income and can boost India’s economy more. Farmers need to be encouraged and lands should be allotted to them.
So that the cost of goats and goat meat reduces. If goat meat cost and cost of goats reduces then sales will definitely increase.
India can play too good with over 200 million Muslims in India. Rich Muslims are about 30% of the Muslim population in India. Middle class Muslims also spend a lot on goats.
If goats bring income of about Millions of dollars every year in India then why can’t India encourage goat sales. And this step will benefit farmers of every religion.
