The Poitou goat breed, a breed which should be rehabilitated

The Poitou goat breed, a breed which should be rehabilitated

Chevre (119): 41-43

The characteristics and merits of the Poitou breed are assessed in the light of experience since 1968 with a 78 goat herd at the Lycee Agricole de Melle. Milk yields of about 500 and 800-900 kg are common in 1st and 2nd lactation resp.; the best lactation was 1402 kg in 305 days. The milk is good for cheese making, having a high protein content (2.87-4.00% vs. 2.76-3.73% for milk from a dairy goat cooperative), particularly in winter.
