The study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of nutritional therapeutic management for induction of estrus in acyclic does in order to increase the kidding percentage at farmers flock. The results indicated that under field condition deworming with suitable anthelmintic, proper feeding, mineral supplement and vitamin A, D-3 and E injection can be effectively used for the induction of estrus in goats in semi-arid environment.
