Breeding of dairy goats in Paraiba State

Data on 5953 goats in 23 flocks were analysed. Flock size ranged from 15 to 1000 goats, and 3142, 434, 1264 and 1113 of the goats resp. were adult females, adult males, female kids and male kids. Age of females at 1st mating was 6-7 months, and most matings occurred at the beginning of the rainy season. Daily milk yield averaged 0.7 litres (0.2-2.8), and lactation length averaged 136 days; 21% of goats were milked twice daily. Mortality was 26% for kids and 19% for adults.
