IntroductionBroiler goat has been evolved to enhance goat meat production in areas were land availability is scarce and fodder become dear. The browsing character of goats destroys the crops.

Sorry that you believe that conversations with those who work with goats in the field are trivial. It might be hard for you to convince people whom you do not respect. While not everyone knows everything about everything you will find that there are many people who know something about something. Thank you for your time. I have enjoyed the discussions. All that you have said will be filed in my trivial brain and will be awaiting further developments. There seems to be many questions left to be answered. The best to you in your research.

Thanks for your understanding. I know it is difficult to convince a person who does some thing for years. The traditionla farmers are doing so. while demonstrating the new model some veterinarians argued that goats will not be i pellet form if forage is not fed. omce they saw they had to believe. No one was ready to adopt the broiler chicken in the onset.i can understand your problem to convince poor farmers. during my carrier with dairy cooperatives it was hard to convince farmers about artificial insemination. i have heard them saying how the pregnancy will be possible from an ampu;e with out a bull.
good day

First of all Rs15/kg or $0.25/kg cost of feed is impossible. For eg soyabean meal it is Rs50/kg, fishmeal is Rs110/kg, DGNcake is Rs38/kg and by the way these are the ones with highest CP and escape protein values. By some basic calculation the CP available in soyabean meal + DGN + 50% of fishmeal has to be 100% utilised in this wonder formula to be able to give the FCR suggested by John and co. The cost of JUST this is 400% of the said figure of Rs15/kg. I am sure that in some lab tested condition this is possible but dos not seem feasible in a real life market scenario as hinted by Dr. Muhammad Ramzan
