Abstract: Through a field study, the work was designed to look into the current state and future prospects of organic goat production in Bangladesh's Noakhali district. Data were gathered through an interview schedule personally from 37 goat farmers in 3 villages of Kabirhat upazilla who were involved in goat rearing. A greater portion of the farmers nursed their goats in a semi-intensive (49%) and free-range system (46%) took winter care (94.59%) and took a bath (86.45%) their goats in the summer. The premier feed items for goats were green grass and straw (54.04%), tree leaves and the main water source was a tube well (67.57%). Besides few of the farmers provided concentrate (24.32%) to their goats. However, most of the farmers used vaccines against PPR disease (60%) and de-wormed (78.38%) their goats. The majority of goat keepers (67.57%) used village bucks to inseminate their does and most of them gave charge for this work. In many farming systems in Bangladesh, raising goats is an essential component. The goat is likely the sole animal that is raised in Bangladesh for its meat, skins, milk, and dung. It offers one of the primary sources of revenue for Bangladeshi farmers. Goats are raised in Bangladesh using a traditional approach that involves the usage of various inorganic materials by the farmers. To meet the country's need for animal protein as well as to produce high-quality goat meat, Bangladesh has a lot of potential for or goat production. Since goat farming is a well-established, extremely lucrative business concept, demand for this enterprise is rising quickly in Bangladesh. A considerable and growing need for extra animal protein diets is being generated by the growing human population. Finding out the current situation and researching the potential for goat production in Bangladesh are of utmost importance in this regard.
