Sheet and goat contributes nearly one-fourth to the total meat production in the country. They are considered as future food animals under climate change scenario. Majority of sheet and goat flocks in the tropical countries are raised on natural grazing resources. These resources are gradually denuding both in yield and quality and compromising the meat production. Further feed scarcity from grazing lands in transforming aged old traditional system to semi intensive and intensive one. The demand of small ruminant meat is increasing rapidly both in domestic and international markets and on the other hand relatively poor production from available animals, feed and infrastructure is reflecting in inflating meat prices. To bridge the gap between demand and supply, large scale specialized sheep and goat production system, which are more conductive to adopt improved production technologies like prolificacy, higher feed efficiency and accelerated production are some of the pertinent and quantifiable approaches. Furthermore, strategies should also be focused on small scale market oriented intensive production system based on existing system and agro-ecologies in certain pockets wherein innovative breeding strategies, choice of breed, feed and feeding system, housing, health and management may also be considered.
This book gives a comprehensive account of current status of sheep and goat meat production and processing being practices and knowledge and technologies for improving designer and hygienic meat and meat product. The book is expected to assist students, researchers, academician, policy makers and planners. This will have long-term benefits and will promote development in both meat sector and R&D institutions.
