Lactation curve, milk yield and milk composition in African dwarf goats

Lactation curve, milk yield and milk composition in African dwarf goats

Wissenschaftliche Zeitschrift der Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin Reihe Agrarwissenschaften 41(4): 49-55

Data were recorded on the 1st lactations of 7 and 2nd-4th lactations of 8 The 150-day milk yield in the 2 groups averaged (+or-standard deviation) 72.5+or-9.3 and 108.3+or-14.4 kg resp., fat percentage of milk 7.41+or-0.98 and 7.62+or-1.08, protein percentage 7.16+or-0.55 and 7.17+or-0.40, and lactose percentage 4.80+or-0.16 and 4.94+or-0.23. Milk yield persistency was higher in old than in young goats. In both groups, body weight increased over the 150-day period.
