The optimum potential of goat as one of the main sources of meat has not been fully tapped in the Philippines. A goat is popularly known as the poor man’s cow because the old folks can not afford to buy cow’s meat. Aside from being cheap, goat’s meat is more digestible compared to cow’s meat. Goat raising is undertaken commonly by small farmers or backyard raisers. A farmer raises an average of one to two head goats. Only a handful of commercial-scale goat farms can be found in the province. This study is conducted to determine the viability of the proposed goat farm business in the town of Oton.

This will upgrade the usual native goat which can produced meaty goat than the usual native goat. Such will also be the source of the red meat that is low cholesterol which is beneficial to the customers who are health conscious. The proposed business will be a sole proprietorship business to be managed by the proponent.

Everyone will be given their appropriate duties and responsibilities such as the time to render their services (e.g. normal hours of work and their salary package).

As a result of this study and the strategies that have been adopted, the following are expected: By 2016 the Galang Goat Farm can sell a maximum of 70 heads of goats, with 93 goats in the inventory.
