Agriculture and related industries are the driving force behind our country's socioeconomic growth. What is particularly concerning in the current situation is that educated rural young, even agricultural graduates are not interested in pursuing a career in agriculture or its related sectors. Goat farming has a lot of potential and plays a big part in providing food and nutrition security in rural regions. After understanding the important role that young may play, the government has decided to launch a program to recruit and retain them in agriculture and related fields. For present study all 120 trained youth in goat farming were selected, trained youth were selected purposively who have obtained training on goat farming under ARYA project and 20 trainers were selected for suggestions for better run his program of the study area. Thus, a total of 140 respondents were included in the study. It was revealed that the majority of trained youth (80.00%) had a medium level of knowledge, followed by 10.83 per cent who had a low level of knowledge, and 09.67 per cent who had a high level of knowledge on appropriate goat rearing practices.
