Abstract—This paper focused on the participatory assessment of the Farmer Livestock School on Goat Enterprise Management (FLS- GEM) in SOCSKSARGEN Region, Philippines. It was conducted from January 2013 to December 2016 in Pigcawayan and Aleosan in Cotabato; Tampakan South Cotabato and Alabel, Sarangani Province whose graduates had already at least two (2) years of technology adoption comprising 30% of the total graduates. Technology timeline method was used to determine technology adoption pattern, degree of adoption and the reasons for such shift or continuous adoption. Similarly, impact benefit matrix was used to determine the difference that FLS- GEM had in their lives and on the community or organization where they belonged. Results revealed the following: 1. The degree of adoption of the FLS- GEM graduates varied. Majority of them were early adaptors of the different technology or tech mixes such as proper housing, stallfeeding of grasses, strategic deworming, vitamin/antibiotic supplementation and upgrading of stock using either upgraded back or artificial insemination, 2. The said training had positive assessment on their personal competence, farm productivity and community assets and 3. Educational attainment, ease of operation had better income from goat proceeds and contributed significantly to the adoption pattern of the graduates.
