Present study was conducted in purposively selected Sindhudurg district from Konkan region of Maharashtra state to document management practices followed by Konkan Kanyal goat farmers. From the selected district, two blocks were selected randomly and further from each block six villages and from each village ten goat farmers were chosen purposively who had Konkan Kanyal goat farming experience of at least two years and had at least five Konkan Kanyal goats in their shed at the time of survey. Organized pretested interview schedule was set up in local language to gather the data through personal interview strategy. Management practices followed were measured in four categories namely breeding, feeding, health management and miscellaneous. The study reflected that overall management practices were of low level. Major constraints faced by goat farmers while managing goat farming in order were unavailability of grazing land, green fodder and concentrate feed, lack of knowledge to formulate balanced ration and distant location of veterinary dispensaries from the village and high treatment cost.
