In the past few years, the demand for goats has seen a boom in the country, with farmers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana having introduced thousands of the large, gentle creatures.
The new breeds have been bred and imported by the governments of these states, where goats are the primary livestock of the farmers.
But some have come under fire for not being raised in humane conditions.
According to an Agence France-Presse report published on Monday, some goats have been left in cages for days without food or water.
Some goats have also been given injections of antibiotics and other drugs to treat infections.
Agence French-Pressel said that these are the “most serious cases” of animal husbandries in India.
The report also found that some goat owners in Telangamut and other parts of the country have been refusing to adopt them.
The government of Telanga Pradesh, for instance, has banned all goats from being sold or sold in its markets.
And the Maharashtra government has banned the importation of goats for commercial purposes.
The reports comes as a fresh batch of goats are being imported into India to feed a rapidly expanding population of the world’s most populous nation.
The growing demand for goat milk in India has created a cottage industry that is worth billions of dollars a year.
“A few years ago, India was a country where there was no animal husbandriing industry.
We had a lot of goats and they are now the number one animal husbandy in India,” says Nandini Singh, the president of Agra-based animal husbandrier Kalyani Sivakaya.
“Now we have over 2 lakh goats and a huge demand for milk.”
The country’s goats are bred in the Andhra region and exported to neighbouring states of Telugu Nadu, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh.
Agra goat milk has become an international market with exports valued at $1.5 billion.
“The demand is huge.
There is a big demand for a variety of products, including goat milk, yogurt and goat meat,” said Praveen Sanyal, president of the National Farmers Federation of India (NFFI).
“Farmers in the western state of Telengana, which is in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, sell goat milk and yogurt in the local markets.
They also use the milk for cattle feed.”
Agra dairy products are among the highest-priced in the world.
“As India grows, farmers need a reliable source of goat milk,” said Naveen, who is also president of Kalyan Jain Dahi Yojana, a non-profit organisation that helps farmers in the state.
Agreeing to adopt an animal is a decision that requires a lot more than just the willingness to take an animal to the vet.
“You have to be very careful about what you put in the animal, what you feed the animal and what you do with the animal.
The vet has to be involved,” he said.
The animals have to have at least 20 litters of milk and are tested for diseases and parasites.
But while the farmers say they don’t breed the animals for the money, they do give them milk for a nominal fee.
They do this so they don, for example, buy goat meat from local markets when they have not been fed properly for a long time.
“We also feed them milk which we are getting from the farmer’s own milk,” Naveer added.
Agreed that it is not possible to buy the milk of a goat that has been bred for milk alone.
“If you buy goat milk from farmers who are already farmers, you may end up in a situation where the milk is not good for the goat.
That is why we also sell it at farmers’ markets.
Farmers are not interested in selling their own milk.”
According to Agence França-Presso, some farmers have refused to sell their goats because of the high price.
But according to a report in Agence-France-Pressey, a leading international news agency, some of the goat farmers who refuse to buy goat milks from the Agra milk traders, believe the animal’s milk is adulterated.
“In some cases, the milk may have been contaminated by bacteria or parasites, and farmers say that they cannot sell the milk due to the high cost,” said the report.
The Agence F-16, a French-made fighter jet, is also being used to patrol the border areas between the two countries, and Agence is using it to collect data on goat farmers.
