About the book
There are several papers published about goats kept and bred around the world, but a breed inventory covering goat breeds on various continents (and countries) is missing. We propose to create this book.
Goats (Capra) will be very useful for people interested in goats. Along with an inventory, there will be summarized information about why these goats were bred, their products, and what kinds of developments in targeting better meat, milk, hair, pelt, and skin production have been carried out until now.
In addition to products, maintenances of countrysides, use of lands, employment for people, new aims have launched, such as pet animals and tools for human therapy, about which only limited information is available. Additionally, a correct evaluation is missing regarding the coexistence of goats, nature, and human beings covering all of the production systems operating now in the world.
During the last decades, many results were published about DNA studies conducted with goats (especially concerning the genetics of milk, meat, and hair production, as well as products development), but systematic summarized evaluations are still not available to goat people. This book will fix these shortcomings.
