All India Coordinated Research Project on Goat Improvement

     All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP) on Goat Improvement is a major long term programme focused to bring upon genetic improvement under prevailing ecosystems and also to conserve goat genetic resources in their area of evolution and adaptation. The project is unique in the sense that it explores genetic variations in local breeds through structured and systematic pedigree and performance recording of farmers flock. Presently, twelve breeds are covered through fourteen centres across the country, which are coordinated by CIRG, Makhdoom. Three breeds i.e. Barbari, Jamunapari and Sirohi are being maintained under semi-intensive farming systemwith optimum feeding to explore genetic potential of the breed in given environment. Nine other breeds viz. Assam Hill goat at Guwahati, Black Bengal at Kolkata and Ranchi, Gaddi at Palampur(HP), Marwari at Bikaner, Osmanabadi at Phaltan (Satara district of Maharashtra), Sangamneri at Rahuri, Sirohi at Vallabhnagar (Udaipur), Ganjam at Bhuvaneshwar, Surti at Navsari and Malabari at Thrissur are being improved under farmer’s flock in their respective home tract. The major thrust of the project is to build up long term capacity of goat keepers through technology demonstration, application of health management practices and introduction of genetically superior breeder goats for enhancing their production and reproduction potential.
