This article was raised to provide a description of the technical and economic parameters given in the extensive dual purpose goat production in the region of the Chicamocha Medio. The methodology was descriptive with quantitative variables and convenience sampling, the information was collected by observation and semi-structured surveys of direct application, and then it was validated through the producer panel technique.
The ignorance of these parameters limits the efficacy in the decision-making of the producers, directly affecting the development of the chain, evidencing in the existing shortcomings in the administrative and market management.
Special thanks to Clara Viviana Rúa Bustamante (Country Representative for Colombia) for this information.
The International Goat Association promotes goat research and development for the benefit of humankind, to alleviate poverty, to promote prosperity and to improve the quality of life.
