Jhon-ryan Perez Eden Ebuan Reymel Agcanas Shaira Lasam Janet Decena Kimberly Cusipag

2 Introduction Goats popularly known as poor man’s cow are commonly raised by small- scale farmers in the Philippines. With it’s relatively smaller built compared with large ruminants, goats are easier to raise and require a small initial investment. Raising goats either for backyard farming or for commercial scale is cheaper and easier to manage than other livestock animals. By nature, goats are browsers and like to eat many varieties of plants. Goat meat popularly known as “chevon” is a real delicacy. Goats too, otherwise known as caldereta is a favorite recipe among the Philippines. The company aims to produce upgrade native goats (Boer x Native=Mestizo) to achieve better quality of meat for domestic consumption. Also, in the years ahead, the company aims to be scalable player in breeding upgraded goats for HALAL meat production.

3 Rationale Goat production is one of the ideal farm enterprises if properly managed in the farm. This project is easy to handle and can utilize family labor and which is also require lesser capital to start in backyard raising. Goat raising is undertaken mostly by small farmers backyard raisers. An average of one or two heads is raised by every farmer. Only a handful of commercial-scale goat farms can be found in the locality. In the study conducted by a government agency, it was found out that goats are multipurpose ruminants producing 58.4% milk, 35.6% meat, 4.3% hide and 1.7% fiber. According to them these small ruminants can provide the answer to improve nutritional requirements of the predominantly rural farm families scattered all over the country.

4 Today, local market can be easily developed due to the scarcity of this commodity. With the ever increase meat products goats’ meat could be readily sold in the market because of its low fat and cholesterol content.

5 Demand and Supply since some of the filipinos loves to eat papaitan, the demand is quite high but supply is considerably low. Filipinos are hard drinkers, they also prefer goats meat as their "pulutan". This serves another profit.

6 Objectives To supply the demand of goats' meat in province of Cagayan.
To popularization of goat meat in the Cagayan. To produce alternative fertilizer for crop production from the manure of goats. To promote cheaper but high quality of goat meat in terms of its nutritive value.

7 Data and Project Profile:
Location: Maguirig, Solana,Cagayan Time Frame:

8 Project Description This project intends to supply markets at a live weight basis in a profitable way along region 2, also to gain profits. The allotted area for this project will be 10 hectares. The 7 hectare lot will be for the goats’ houses/grazing area and the other 3 hectare will be planted with forage grass which will be the source of feeds for goats. The produced kids will be raised/fattened in 6 months prior to marketing. In addition to the forage and grass, UMMB will be provided. For lactating does, supplemental feeds will be given. Harvesting of fatteners will be done twice a year. Pro- active marketing will be made to kambingan restaurants/eateries, cooperative members and the general public.

9 Market Assessment The targeted stakeholders are the cooperatives (lighthouse cooperative), kambingan restaurants or eateries and the general public along Tuguegarao, Solana, Enrile and in neighboring municipalities. High demand of goat meat in the locality is due to the absence of a potential competitor. All parts of a goat could be utilized in gaining income. Because of the unique taste of goats’ meat which can be cooked in many different ways, such as caldereta, papaitan, longganisa, meat loaf, and other delicacies, meat goat consumption is at a high rate.

10 Problems to be addressed
Outcome/ Target Low Productivity Inadequate Quality Breeders Poor Product Quality Malnutrition Hunger Inadequate Extension Services Low income Occurrence of Disease Increased productivity Access to Improved Quality Access to nutritious food Provision of efficient Extension Service Source of Livelihood Disease Control & Prevention

11 Competition Analysis Strengths
- few direct competitors that offers goat farming products in the Region. - Warm conditions of the area are conducive to goat farming - Availability of open undeveloped land since it is a predominantly rural area - Goats adaptability is high - Goats have a short gestation period (only 5 months) and often give twins. The average kids per goat are thus 3 kids per annum. - Breed all year round in tropical zones -Goats feed by grazing and browsing, feeds at different heights, stand on hind legs to reach food, climbing into trees - Goats are well adapted to many environments

12 - Goats serves as very good source of income and food.
- Goat’s meat is very tasty and it is juicy and eaten often by many people - Goat requires small area to graze. - Goats medical needs is low and cheaper compared to other farm - Goat farming requires small amount of money to start - Goats make very good manure. - Goats require less labour and time per head compared to cattle - Goats are highly resistant to diseases Weaknesses: - building and facilities cost - Co-operation amongst existing small-scale goat farmers needed - Goats may be highly resistant to diseases but contamination by parasites could be detrimental to their health - Inadequate supply of reproductive goats

SOCIAL DESIRABILITY This chapter will discuss the different sectors that would benefit from the proposed business. The purpose of putting up business is not just to generate profit but to give importance to social and economic benefit that it can provide. The proposed business will be located at Maguirig, Solana, Cagayan. It is eco-friendly and there are fewer people in it, which will free the animals from stress. The said business will increased rate of employment through providing job opportunities to those people who were unable to attain higher education. INCREASE IN GOVERNMENT REVENUE In putting up a business, registration of business is necessary to have permits and license from the government office. These along with the taxes are then paid as the business operates. Taxes from part of the government revenues that help to support the needs of the public.

BIOGAS FACILITIES The farm to fork has a biogas facility that treats goat wastes and generates enough methane gas that is used for cooking at the farm house. This facility has made the commercial farm environmentally friendly as it minimizes goat odors from farm wastes. Also, after biogas processing of effluent wastes, wastewater is discharged to irrigate the grass paddocks within farm premises. The farm will also convert feces to organic fertilizers which will be used in the forage area and some will be sold to Plant and Land scaping businesses to gain more profit.

23 Conclusions and Recommendations
This feasibility study shows there is a high possibility of prospering in goat meat production. Because you spend a lesser amount of money and resources in this business it would be more ideal to venture on this kind of business than other large animals. There are also lesser risks and failures. It has a high profitability rate at lesser expenses. If you have a small investment capital, you can still engage in an income generating business like goat meat production. You can start at a lesser cost and end up with higher income rate.
