Breeding, Feeding and Management
As a source of milk and meat and as a provider of supple skins and silky fibres for converting into rugs, tents and clothing, the goat has long played an important role in many countries. Although goats apparently received little attention at a time when Bakewell, the Colling brothers, Ellman, Quartly, Tomkins and others were achieving sensational results in the improvement of sheep and cattle breeds, selective breeding in Switzerland and other countries led to the evolution of high-yielding milch goats which have some amazing production figures to their credit.
