Haryana has a small goat 5.38 lakh population (18th livestock census, 2007. In this study the goat species is analyzed, Moran?s I coefficient of autocorrelation was used to investigate the spatial distribution of goat to analyze clustering of the population in Haryana using Tehsil as a real unit. Goat census data was used to link the heterogeneity in the goat distribution with regard to agro-ecosystems and other environmental factors related to agro-ecological zones in the state of Haryana. Comparatively lower population density (0 - 18/ sq. km) of goat was observed in North, easternand western Haryana. Higher Goat density (greater than19 per sq km) is restricted in south Haryana. Moran?s I statistic revealed that the distribution of all types of Goat was clustered. The distribution of the goat was characterized in terms of agro-ecosystem prevalent in the area. This ecosystem approach to characterize livestock distribution is useful in livestock production systems research planning.
