Sustainability of sheep and goat production systems is a significant task for any organization that aims for long term goals. Housing and feeding selection for goat farming is the most important factor that should be considered before setting out the goat farm. The decision framework of housing selection should include environmental, social and human impact for the long term, rather than on short-term gains. In the selection process, various parameters are involved such as housing materials,

Those parameters highlight the quality of housing in relation to aspects of traditional breeding provided by the organizations. However, the process of housing selection is often led by hands on experience which contains vague, ambiguous and uncertain decisions. To overcome this issue it is necessary to frame an efficient algorithm which could remove the entire barrier in the decision making process. In this paper we propose a neutrosophic multi-criteria decision making framework that combines the TODIM method with the SD- HNWA operator. The resulting multi-criteria decision analytical MCDM framework is then applied in selecting the best system in housing and feeding of goats at a mixed farming agrofarm in India. The proposed approach allows us to establish the neutrosophic based value function that measures the degree to which one alternative is superior to others by calculating accurate number of information in pair wise comparison in terms of gain and loss. The outcomes of the proposed method are compared with the use of the TOPSIS method to prove its efficiency and validate the results.
