I want to know which is the best goat breed in Iran , to do goat farming in Iran with Stall feeding method

Thanks for your good question, but we have more than 20 breeds and each of them is suitable for a region, stall feeding still is not economic because of feed deficit and its comparison with poultry and cow even by sheep as main producers of meat
