Re: want to start stall fed goat farm

The goat breeds which are suitable for Uttaranchal are 1.Jamunapari:- 2.Barbari:-


The breed, quite important for milk and meat, is a dwarf breed highly suited for rearing under restrained and stall-feeding conditions. In addition to being a good milker, it is highly prolific. Considering the number of animals reported, there is serious need for undertaking conservation measures. It was observed in personal surveys that most males are castrated early in life and fattened for slaughter at religious festivals, and that a sizeable number of non-descript goats are kept for milk production by owners who maintain Barbaris, as all the milk of the latter is allowed to be suckled by their kids to ensure good growth.d) Breed characteristicsi) Size


Adult malesAdult females
Body weight (kg)37.85 ± 1.96 (10)22.56 ± 0.32 (203)
Body length (cm)70.45 ± 1.43 (11)58.68 ± 0.38 (203)
Height at withers (cm)70.67 ± 0.74 (11)56.18 ± 0.37 (203)
Chest girth (cm)75.53 ± 1.25 (11)64.31 ± 0.40 (203)
ii) Conformation. Small animals, with compact body. The orbital bone is quite prominent, so that eyes appear bulging. There is wide variation in coat colour, but white with small light brown patches is the most typical. Ears are short, tubular, almost double, with the slit opening in front, erect, directed upward and outward. Both sexes have twisted horns, medium in length and directed upward and backward; horn length: 11.17 ± 0.27 cm (99). Bucks have a large thick beard.e) Flock structure. The average flock contains 9.25 ± 2.23 individuals (range: 2 to 31), of which 0.6 adult males, 5.3 adult females and 3.4 young.f) Management and feeding. Stationary. Mostly maintained on browsing and grazing stubble of cultivated crops and tree leaves. Cultivated fodders (e.g. berseem, wheat straw) and grains (e.g. maize, barley, millets) are commonly offered. The animals are generally housed in thatched sheds inside the house. Most males are castrated at ages between 7 to 30 days by the open method, with a blade, and are fattened on milk for slaughter on festive occasions.g) Production.·         Milk. Average lactation yield (7, 19, 26): 107.120 ± 3.2789 kg (70); lactation length (7, 11, 19): 150.13 ± 5.247 days (94); daily milk yield (7, 11): 0.760 ± 0.158 kg (99); dry period (11): 155.3 ± 10.6 days (24).·         Meat: body weight (kg) (sources: 1, 3, 8, 27)

At birth

1.739 ± 0.018 (539)
At weaning6.661 ± 0.095 (325)
6 months7.800 ± 0.476 (9)
9 months12.566 ± 1.215 (9)
12 months14.517 ± 0.765 (18)


The name is derived from the location of the breed beyond the river Jamna (Jamna Par) in Uttar Pradesh 1.Jamnapari is one of the largest goats in India; it has been extensively utilized to upgrade indigenous breeds for meat and milk, and has been taken to neighbouring countries for the same purpose.d) Breed characteristics

i) Size

Adult maleAdult female
Body weight (kg)44.66 ± 1.89 (49)38.03 ± 0.63 (168)
Body length (cm)77.37 ± 1.23 (49)75.15 ± 0.46 (168)
Height at withers (cm)78.17 ± 1.25 (49)75.20 ± 0.38 (168)
Chest girth (cm)79.52 ± 1.2 (49)76.11 ± 0.38 (168)
ii) Conformation. Large animals. There is a great variation in coat colour, but the typical coat is white with small tan patches on head and neck. The typical character of the breed is a highly convex nose line with a tuft of hair, yielding a parrotmouth appearance. The ears are very long, flat and drooping; ear length: 26.79 ± 0.21 cm (216). Both sexes are horned; horn length: 8.69 ± 0.27 cm(108). Tail is thin and short. A thick growth of hair on the buttocks, known as feathers, obscures the udder when observed from behind. The udder is well developed, round, with large conical teats.1 A distinct strain, called Ramdhan (also known locally as Kandari Ka Khana) originated from a cross between a doe from the Alwar region in Rajasthan and a Jamnapari buck; it has a typical nose shape, even more like a parrot mouth than is usually observed in the true breed. The strain is known to have better milk production and growth, but its flocks are very limited in number.e) Flock structure. The average flock contains 16.0 ± 2.57 individuals (range: 8 to 41), of which 0.25 adult males, 8.65 adult females and 7.1 young.f) Management and feeding. The flocks, stationary, are maintained primarily on tree loppings, acacia pods and stubble of cultivated crops. Some supplementary feeding (200 to 250 g/day of Arhar and gram) is given to lactating animals. The animals are housed in the courtyard within the living quarters, under a thatched shed with a thorny fence. Most animals are docked. Castration does not take place.g) Breeding. Flocks are pure-bred. Selection in bucks is based on dam's milk yield.h) Performance·         Milk. Average lactation yield (30): 201.96 ± 6.65 kg (166); lactation length (30): 191 ± 6 days (116); average daily yield (24): 1.752 ± 0.031 kg (434); dry period (30): 115 ± 3 days. In farmers' flocks, average daily yield: 2.15 ± 0.30 kg; average lactation length: 255 ± 6.7 days.·         Meat: body weight (kg) (sources: 10, 12, 15, 28, 30, 33)
