Goats Husbandry for Extensive Use

Anastasios Neofitides, Ezzat S. Tawfik


Twenty-six crossbred dams of the F3 generation and twenty Cashmere dams were surveyed with regard to their productivity, hardiness and resilience. The endoparasite situation was recorded for both the dams and lambs of both breeding groups. Productivity data of both breeding groups included figures on reproduction and dressing percentage. Using a scoring key, the rate of claw growth of both breeding groups was recorded as a possibility of comparison.
