Black Bengal is the only true breed of goat in Bangladesh. It is generally farmed for its meat.
The breed is short in size; reaching a height of 50-60 cm and length of 80-90 cm. Their ears are short, pointy and horizontal to the ground. Females have shorter, thinner and vertical horns, which reaches length of 5-6 cm. Males have relatively longer horns that are bigger, thicker and curved backwards. They have short and smooth skin. Adult males weighs around 25-40 kg while the adult females reach around 20-40 kg.
Females usually gives 200-300 ml of milk a day for 2-3 months per year.
One can get 45-55% meat of the total weight of the goat. For example, a goat weighing 20 kg can produce 11 kg of meat at maximum.
The weight to hide ratio is 3:50. A goat weighing 20 kg can produce 1.2-1.4 kg of raw hide.
The females give birth to more than one kids twice every 12-14 months. But in 80% cases they give birth to a kid only at the first time.
Since early civilization husbandry is a major part of human life. A little scientific approach for animal farming can make a significant impact in the lives of the women and their families at the grass root level. They can engage themselves in goat farming by utilizing the areas around their home. Thus goat farming can play a vital role in women empowerment.
The primary objective for the programme is to train the rural under privileged women and thus empower them by building their self-confidence.
