Sheep, goat, and rabbit are the livestock species which find a midway nitch between large animal farmers and land less laborers. It has been observed that crop production in India is totally dependent upon rainfall pattern hence experiences severe crises and acuteness if monsoon fails. It ultimately affects large animal production also. Under such circumstances the only commodity which can provide substantial sustenance to farmer is small ruminant production along with rabbit rearing, which requires less input and provide desirable output. In current scenario the old age prevailing sheep rearing technology and practices adopted by the farmers in the country will not be able to meet the demand of the stakeholders, although very few farmers are trying to adopt a few technologies to cater the need of the hours but still require improvement and refinement. In this connection it is submitted that very frequently farmers are visiting Institute and asking for training Programme. Considering above facts, it is proposed to have a complete training module for sheep, goat, and rabbit rearing with scientific way from care and management of day old to its finishing age in all the three species. Hence it is proposed to have a 07-day Livestock Entrepreneurship Development Programme on sheep, goat and rabbit rearing depending =upon the requirement of the client.
