The present study was conducted to analyze the impact of extension interventions on capacity building of tribal people on scientific goat farming practices in randomly selected three villages of Narayanganj block of Mandla district. Data were collected through a structured interview schedule from 100 tribal goat owners by personal interview method. Suitable extension interventions like group discussion, awareness cum animal health treatment camps, exposure visits, training programmers were applied in the study areas. The capacity building of tribal goat owners were measured on the basis of improvement in knowledge and change in attitude towards scientific goat farming practices. The chi-square test was applied ‘before’ and ‘after’ interventions of various extension strategies. The study showed a significant improvement in the knowledge and attitude of tribal goat owners after extension interventions. The chi-square value (111.2 and 91.61) is also highly significant at 1 per cent level which is a clear indication of improvement in knowledge and attitude among goat owners in the study areas. Thus, it can be concluded that proper extension interventions on goat farming can improve the capacity building of the tribal people.
