Abstract: This paper examines the effect herd size, fodder, capital, water condition and management on goat gross revenue in Oman. There were several essential results. First, there is a strong positive relationship between some of the mentioned variables, namely fodder and labor, with gross revenue. Second, increasing goats herd size shows a positive effect on revenue. However, as size become large so that input exceed output we get what economist referred as the law of dimishing return. Third, Factors such as water condition and management practice are of some important on the goat production system. A program and policy effort to encourage farmers to use innovation for animal husbandry will no doubt improve the productivity of tradition goat system in Oman.
