AICRP on Goat Improvement

All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP) on Goat Improvement is a long term and well structured proram aimed to bring upon genetic improvement and conservation of goat genetic resources of the country in their respective home tracts. The program explores genetic variation in local breeds through superior animal identification, pedigree and individual performance recording, selecting high genetic potential animals for breeding, development of management practices/models/technologies and their validation in farmers flock, and capacity building of goat keepers. Presently, AICRP on goat improvement is working with 21 centres covering 15 registered goat breeds and 3 local genotypes in 15 states. Nine units are working as partially TSP unit under Tribal sub plan fund of the project. Assam hill goat unit is also operational in NEH region.


  • Genetic improvement of major production traits and product quality in different agroclimatic regions.
  • To increase the goat productivity in small livestock production system and to develop sustainable community breeding model at village level.
  • 1st Prize by Nagar Rajbhasha Karyanvayan Samiti, Deptt. of Official Languages, Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India
  • To develop germplasm resource centres in different agroclimatic zones and to validate the goat production technologies in different regions.
  • Capacity building of goat keepers and stakeholders for sustainable and profitable goat husbandry.
