Data were collected using structured questionnaire and analyzed using descriptive statistics, marketing margin and regression analysis. The result reveal that 38.5% and 30.1% of the goat marketers were within the age brackets of 35-39 years and above 40 years, almost all (96.5%) of the goat marketers were male and Most (70.6%) of the goat marketers were married with majority (51.7%) having households between 2-3 persons and almost all (97.9%) and 42.9% of the goat marketers had Qur’anic and primary education respectively. The result further shows a total marketing cost of ₦2,140,550 with a gross margin of ₦761,450 before insurgency and net marketing income of ₦0.36 indicating that Goat marketing was a profitable venture before insurgency. similarly, a net marketing income of ₦0.01 during the insurgency. The findings also reveal that 42% and 28.7% of the goat marketers had a capital of ₦50,000-₦120,000 and ₦121,000-₦191,000 before insurgency while 44.1% of the goat marketers had a capital investment of ₦50,000-₦160,000 during insurgency. The major constraints in Goat marketing before and during insurgency were bank closure (72%), market closure (55.9%) and bomb explosion in public places (55.2%) which were ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively.
