The households of medium flocks enjoyed highest marginal productivity of fodder and labour and second highest of concentrate. The households of small flocks were in excessive use of labour input in desi goats. The households of large flocks might increase their return by properly increasing labour utilisation. The households of medium flocks may further increase their returns by inposing restriction on concentrate use and properly increasing the fodder and labour input use.
