aims & objectives of the Association
Goat & Sheep Farmers Welfare Association was founded in 2014. It is the first non-profit organization representing members from most of the 29 states of India. The Association is comprised of professionals & planners, scientists, entrepreneurs, commercial goat or sheep breeders & farmers, etc. associated with small bovine sector across India.
In the absence of a common platform, the sector has remained ignored in the past.
