Prospects for increasing food production from goats in the tropics

Malaysian Veterinary Journal 7(2): 1-18

Prospects for increasing food production from goats in the tropics

In the past goats were an unimportant and neglected resource. Over the last decade interest in their value (meat, milk, skins and fiber) has increased, and goats are now widely recognized as an important component of the animal genetic resources of the developing countries of the tropics. The small former involvement and socio-economic impact of rearing goats, recent advances in intrinsic biological attributes: small size higher digestive efficiency, food (meat and milk) production ability and reproductive rate and their potential economic value in systems of production are discussed.
