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.
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.
Subject areas and keywords for the book include:
- Goat breeds
- Production systems
- Roles in human society
- Co-existence: goats, nature, human
- DNA in development
- Health, diseases, handling
- Skin production
