Evidence suggesting the regulation of a coagulation factor levels in rabbits by a transferable plasma agent. (1/3173)

New Zealand white rabbits were given 30 ml of goat serum intravenously. This procedure resulted in an immediate decrease in platelet count, fibrinogen, and levels of coagulation factors II, V, VII, and X, due to consumption coagulopathy. These factors returned toward baseline levels approximately 12 hr after the injection. Plasma from rabbits who had received goat serum 48 hr previously (donor rabbits) was injected into recipient rabbits. This procedure resulted in a slight rise in the level of coagulation factor II (range, 20%-30%) and a significant rise in factors V (35%-75%), VII (35%-235%), and X (35%-75%) in the recipients. When plasma from control donor rabbits who had not received goat serum was injected into recipients, there was no change in these coagulation factors. It is postulated that the reduction in coagulation factor levels in donor rabbits induces a "coagulopoietin" for each factor or one "coagulopoietin" for all factors which stimulates increased synthesis and/or release of these factors in recipient rabbits.  (+info)

The role of colorstrum on the occurrence of immunoglobulin G subclasses and antibody production in neonatal goats. (2/3173)

Quantitative determinations of IgG1 and IgG2, in one group of colostrum-fed and one group of colostrum-deprived neonatal goats revealed that the occurrence of the IgG1 subclass preceeded that of the IgG2 in both cases. In the colostrum-fed animals the IgG2 appeared, on an average, in the fourth week of life whereas in the colostrum-deprived animals the IgG2 was detected as early as three weeks after birth. At the age of twelve weeks the mean concentrations for IgG, and IgG2 were higher in the animals deprived of colostrum. The immune response to human gamma globulin was studied in colostrum-fed and colostrum-deprived neonatal goats which were immunized at birth and again after four and eight weeks. Following the first two antigen administrations a significantly higher response was obtained in the colostrum-fed neonates. However, the third injection determined a similar response in both groups. A marked suppressive effect on the immune response was observed in colostrum-fed neonatal goats when specific antibodies were present in the colostrum after preimmunization of the mothers with human gamma globulin.  (+info)

A novel epitope for the specific detection of exogenous prion proteins in transgenic mice and transfected murine cell lines. (3/3173)

Prion diseases are closely linked to the conversion of host-encoded cellular prion protein (PrPC) into its pathological isoform (PrPSc). PrP conversion experiments in scrapie infected tissue culture cells, transgenic mice, and cell-free systems usually require unique epitopes and corresponding monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) for the immunological discrimination of exogenously introduced and endogenous PrP compounds (e.g., MAb 3F4, which is directed to an epitope on hamster and human but not on murine PrP). In the current work, we characterize a novel MAb designated L42 that reacts to PrP of a variety of species, including cattle, sheep, goat, dog, human, cat, mink, rabbit, and guinea pig, but does not bind to mouse, hamster, and rat PrP. Therefore, MAb L42 may allow future in vitro conversion and transgenic studies on PrPs of the former species. The MAb L42 epitope on PrPC includes a tyrosine residue at position 144, whereas mouse, rat, and hamster PrPs incorporate tryptophane at this site. To verify this observation, we generated PrP expression vectors coding for authentic or mutated murine PrPCs (i.e., codon 144 encoding tyrosine instead of tryptophan). After transfection into neuroblastoma cells, MAb L42 did not react with immunoblotted wild-type murine PrPC, whereas L42 epitope-tagged murine PrPC was strongly recognized. Immunoblot and fluorescence-activated cell sorting data revealed that tagged PrPC was correctly posttranslationally processed and translocated to the cell surface.  (+info)

Cloning and sequencing of beta-mannosidase gene from Aspergillus aculeatus no. F-50. (4/3173)

The manB gene, coding for a unique beta-mannosidase (MANB) of Aspergillus aculeatus, was cloned from genomic and cDNA libraries, and sequenced. The gene consists of 2,811 bp encoding a polypeptide of 937 amino acid residues with a molecular mass of 104,214 Da. The A. aculeatus MANB shared amino acid sequence identity with MANB of human (24%), goat (24%), bovine (24%), and Caenorhabditis elegans (22%). When the A. aculeatus MANB was compared with other related enzymes, a Glu residue corresponding to the active site identified by the Escherichia coli beta-galactosidase and the human beta-guclonidase was conserved. This is the first fungal gene that encodes MANB.  (+info)

The effect of bovine somatotropin treatment on production of lactating angora does with kids. (5/3173)

Fourteen Angora does (35+/-2 kg), each with a single kid and in the first month of lactation, were used to determine ongoing (Period 1) and residual (Period 2) effects of chronic bovine somatotropin (bST) treatment. Specifically, we sought to determine whether chronic bST treatment was capable of improving milk yield, and thus kid growth, and mohair production of nursing does. The experiment consisted of a 2-wk pretreatment period, 5 wk of weekly subcutaneous treatment of slow-release bST (n = 7; Period 1), and a 4-wk posttreatment period (Period 2). The weekly dose of bST was calculated to release 100 microg/(kg BW.d(-1)). To estimate milk production, kids were separated from the does daily for 5 h, and their BW was recorded before and after suckling. The difference in BW was taken as milk production for 5 h. Fiber growth was measured by shearing does at the start of the experiment and at the end of Periods 1 and 2. Dry matter intake and BW of does were not affected by bST (P>.05). Average daily gain of kids that were suckling bST-treated does was higher (P<.05) than for kids of untreated does during Period 1 (184 vs. 139 g/d) but not during Period 2 (140 vs. 136 g/d; P>.10). Treatment with bST did not affect (P>.10) milk composition or clean fleece production in either period. Injection of bST did not affect (P>.10) plasma concentrations of glucose (mean = 49.5 mg/dL), urea N (mean = 19 mg/dL), total protein (mean = 72.5 g/d), or NEFA (mean = 122 microEq/L). During the period of bST treatment, plasma concentrations of somatotropin and IGF-I were increased (P<.05), concentrations of thyroxine and cortisol were decreased (P<.10), and plasma insulin levels were unchanged (P>.10) by bST. In conclusion, treatment of Angora dams with bST did not change DMI or mohair growth, but it improved growth of their kids.  (+info)

Mechanical maceration of alfalfa. (6/3173)

Maceration is an intensive forage-conditioning process that can increase field drying rates by as much as 300%. Because maceration shreds the forage and reduces its rigidity, improvements in bulk density, silage compaction, and ensiling characteristics have been observed. Macerating forage also increases the surface area available for microbial attachment in the rumen, thereby increasing forage digestibility and animal performance. Feeding trials with sheep have shown increases in DMI of 5 to 31% and increases in DM digestibility of from 14 to 16 percentage units. Lactation studies have demonstrated increases in milk production and BW gain for lactating Holstein cows; however, there is a consistent decrease in milk fat percentage when dairy cattle are fed macerated forage. In vitro studies have shown that maceration decreases lag time associated with NDF digestion and increases rate of NDF digestion. In situ digestibility studies have shown that maceration increases the size of the instantly soluble DM pool and decreases lag time associated with NDF digestion, but it may not consistently alter the rate or extent of DM and NDF digestion.  (+info)

Experimentally induced bovine spongiform encephalopathy did not transmit via goat embryos. (7/3173)

Goats are susceptible to experimental challenge with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). This study set out to investigate whether the transmission of BSE could occur in goats following the transfer of embryos from experimentally infected donor females into uninfected recipient females. The results showed no evidence of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy disease in any of the offspring which developed from embryos from infected donors, nor indeed in any of the recipient females used as surrogate dams. In addition, there was no indication of experimental BSE spreading as either a venereal infection to males used in mating or by maternal transmission to offspring born naturally to experimentally infected donors, although numbers were small.  (+info)

An outbreak of acute coccidiosis is reported in West African Dwarf (WAD) goats kept under semi- intensive management system at the University of Ibadan farm. During the period of the outbreak, clinical signs observed among the animal included anorexia, fever, coughing, ocular and nasal discharges and diarrhoea. Sixty nine out of eighty-five (85%) animals were scouring, 6 out of 20 (30%) pregnant does aborted, 8 out of 80 (10%) died through severe infection. Average oocyst counts was 2.73 x 10(5)/gram faeces in kids and 0.9 x 10(3)/gram faeces in adult goats. Eimeria species predominant in goats and percentage occurrence were E. arloingi (77.5%), E. ninakohlyakimovae (62.89%), E. hirci (58.6%). E. alijevi (39.5%). Areas of glandular degeneration and necrosis of epithelium of the small intenstine were seen. Also coccidia schizonts, immature oocysts, and neutrophilic infiltrations can be seen in the intestinal mucosa. The presence of pathogenic species of the Eimeria in WAD goats suggest that ...

The overall animal and farm seroprevalence of C. burnetii in dairy goats farms with ≥ 100 dairy goats observed in this study was 21.4% and 43.1% respectively. These seroprevalence estimates increased compared to the seroprevalence measured in 2008, when 14.7% of individual dairy goats were serologically positive and 17.9% of farms tested positive. The within-herd prevalence on positive dairy goat farms in our study was 46.6% compared to 32.1% (95%CI 28.4%-35.9%) in 2008 (van den Brom R, Moll L, Vellema P: Q fever seroprevalence in sheep and goats in the Netherlands in 2008, submitted). This study demonstrates substantial transmission of C. burnetii within and between dairy goat farms in recent years prior to the mandatory vaccination campaign in the Netherlands.. The relatively low overall participation rate of 37% probably reflects the reluctance to take part in the study at the same time as control measures increased, including finally the culling of pregnant goats at bulk milk PCR-positive ...
The Pygora goat is a breed of fiber goat that originated from crossing the registered NPGA Pygmy goat and the white AAGBA Angora goat. Pygora goats produce three distinct kinds of fleece. Pygoras are fiber goats along with the Angora goat and Cashmere goat. The Pygora was a purposeful cross, bred by Katharine Jorgensen of Oregon City, Oregon. In 1987, the Pygora Breeders Association was formed in the United States, and has since then been registering and promoting Pygoras. Today, the registered Pygora goat may not be more than 75% AAGBA-registered Angora goat or 75% NPGA-registered Pygmy goat. First generation (F1) Pygmy-Angora crosses are not considered true Pygoras; however, these may be bred with other Pygora goats, F1 crosses, or back to pure Pygmy or Angora goats to produce true Pygora goats. This may be continued while maintaining the integrity of the breed as long as they have no more than 75% Pygmy or Angora ancestry. Pygoras live for 12 to 14 years, and are commonly used for fiber, ...
DISCUSSION The main vessels forming the arterial circle of the brain in Capra hircus L are internal carotid arteries whose supracranial section, after birth, atrophies, Daniel et al. (1953). The intracranial section is reconstructed mainly from the rete supraduralis. A similar pattern of arteries is found in all the ruminants researched so far, including cattle, as reported by Hofmann (1900), de Vriese (1905 ), Chomiak, Welento (1967 ), Brudnicki, Gielecki (1996 ), roe-deer and in red deer - Godynicki, Wiland (1970, 1971), sheep by Jab o ski, Wiland (1973 ) and bison W grzyn et al. (1983 ). The function of the rete mirabile is to regulate the flow of arterial blood towards the cerebrum as well as the thermal regulation of the brain preventing it from overheating; the arterial system of the cerebrum in ruminants, including Capra hircus L, is equipped with a safety system. Comparing the arteries of the base of the cerebrum in Capra hircus L with those in other species of ruminants, it was observed ...
Known for its milk, the Alpine goat is famous for its rich dairy production. Alpine goats are extremely popular in the dairy industry for their docile temperament, high quality milk output and long lactation.[5] Alpine milk has relatively low fat content, with an average fat percent of 3.4%.[2] It is higher in sugars than cows milk but balances itself in terms of the amount of protein. Alpine goats milk has 2.3 g of protein per 250 ml while cows milk has 3.4.[7] A higher protein count is not always good, since it packs more calories with an increased fat content. Compared to Saanen goat milk, it is higher in all nutritional aspects, except the fat content, making it a much healthier choice.[8] Alpine goats are one of the top milk producers, alongside Saanen and Toggenburg goats. They are distinct from the other two due to their low value of fat content.[4] This could be a direct correlation between the weight of the animal and its habitual environment. However, the Nubian goats weight is ...
The objectives of the present study were to initiate cloning of Korean native goat by somatic cell nuclear transfer (NT) and to examine whether unovulated (follicular) oocytes can support the same developmental ability of NT embryos as ovulated (oviductal) oocytes after hCG injection in stimulated cycles of the goat. The in vivo-matured and immature oocytes were collected from the oviducts and follicles of superovulated does, respectively, and the immature oocytes were maturated in vitro. Ear skin fibroblasts derived from a 3-yr-old female Korean native goat were used as the donors of nuclei or karyoplasts. Following fusion, activation and in vitro culture to a 2- to 4-cell stage, 49 in vitro-derived and 105 in vivo-derived embryos were transferred to 6 and 17 recipient does, respectively. One doe and three does of the respective groups were identified as pregnant by ultrasonography on day 30 after embryo transfer. However, only one doe, which had received in vivo-derived embryos, delivered a ...
Oestrus was synchronised with PGF2-alpha in four pluriparous West African Dwarf (WAD) goats and blood collected through jugular venupuncture. The length of the oestrous cycle and oestrus duration were observed in three successive cycles while peripheral plasma progesterone and oestradiol-17B levels were determined by the radioimmunoassay technique. The mean oestrous cycle lengths and oestrus duration were 19.4 ± 1.7 d and 33.3 ± 6.6 h, respectively. Progesterone levels were very low during the first four days of the cycle (day 1 = day of oestrous) with the lowest level of 0.3 ± 0.02 ng/ml being recorded on day 2 of the cycle. There was a steady rise in the levels during the cycle until day 15 when the highest level of 2.2 ± 0.05 ng/ml was recorded which was followed by a sharp decline on day 20 (P ,0.05). The profile of oestradiol-17B was erratic during the cycle. Mean maximum and minimum concentrations were recorded on day 1 (152.6 ± 31.6 ng/ml) and day 2 (58.8 ± 22.6 ng/ml), ...
The investigation and analysis of goat milk in Taiwan and detection of reconstituted goat milk in raw goat milk. The qualities of raw and fresh goat milk in Taiwan were investigated in February, April, June, August and October of 2011. The fat and solids-not-fat (SNF) percentage of raw milk had the highest value in Feb. were 3.49 and 8.74, respectively, and had the lowest value in Jun. were 3.05 and 8.07 %. During experiment period, there were 8 and 39 % of raw and fresh goat milk could not fit CNS standard. A FAST (fluorescence of advanced Maillard products and soluble tryptophan) method for identification of reconstituted goat milk in the fresh goat milk was evaluated. This method is based on the simultaneous determination of protein denaturation by Trp fluorescence and the formation of fluorescent advanced Maillard products in the goat milk. The Trp fluorescence value of raw goat milk had the highest value, and then was reconstituted milk and fresh milk had the lowest value. This might be the ...
The Black Bengal goat is a breed of goat found throughout Bangladesh, West Bengal, Bihar, and Orissa regions of northeastern India.[1] This breed is usually colored black but it is also found in brown, white or gray. The Black Bengal goat is small in size but its body structure is tight. Its horns are small and legs are short. An adult male goat weights about 25 to 30 kg and female 20 to 25 kg. It is poor in milk production. It is very popular in Bangladesh because of its very low demand of food and very high baby production rate.[2] The Black Bengal goats gain sexual maturity very fast. The female goat becomes pregnant twice a year and gives birth to 1-3 baby goats every time.[3] This breed can adapt to any environment easily and its disease preventive ability is very high. It produces high-quality meat and skin. This breed plays a very important role in reducing unemployment and poverty from Bangladesh.[4] They can eat most of vegetables, grasses and leaves, however, high amounts of carrots is ...
Following the suspected case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in a goat in France, which was subsequently confirmed*, the European Commission requested that EFSA carry out a quantitative risk assessment on the risks posed to humans from goat meat and goat meat products. In a statement published on 28 January 2005**, the Scientific Panel on Biological Hazards (BIOHAZ) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) indicated that important information gaps remained related to the quantification of risks to human health associated with consumption of goat meat should BSE be present in the goat population. In its opinion published today, the BIOHAZ Panel concludes that the likely prevalence of BSE in the wider EU goat population is very low, based on results of ongoing and also recently increased surveillance of the goat population put in place by the European Commission*** and on other data available to date. Owing to a lack of appropriate data required to quantify the risk of BSE in goats, ...

China has numerous native domestic goat breeds, but so far there has been no extensive study on genetic diversity, population demographic history, and origin of Chinese goats. To determine the origin and genetic diversity of Chinese goats, we analyzed the complete mtDNA D-loop sequences of 183 goats from 13 breeds. The haplotype diversity value found in each breed ranged from 0.9333 to 1.0000. The nucleotide diversity value ranged from 0.006337 to 0.025194. Our results showed that there were four mtDNA lineages (A, B, C and D), in which lineage A was predominant, lineage B was moderate, and lineages C and D were at low frequencies. Lineages C and D were observed only in the Tibetan breed. The results revealed multiple maternal origins of Chinese domestic goats. There was weaker geographical structuring in the 13 Chinese goat populations, which suggested that there existed high gene flow among goat populations caused by the extensive transportation of goats in the course of history ...

Dairy goats rearing in Kenya is growing fast and contributing to better human nutrition. Dairy goats milk is tasty and has higher nutritional value than cows milk due to high content of calcium and phosphorus. Most adults and children who are allergic to cows milk can tolerate goats milk. Increased number of people has become aware of this superior nutritional value and the market for goats milk and yoghurt is growing. Goats have become very popular with small scale farmers in urban and densely populated areas. Land sizes are too small to support daily cattle, in which case the goats are stall fed on fodder and crop residues. The main dairy goat breeds reared in Kenya include German alpine which is brown with a black stripe on the spine and shoulders, Toggenburg which is brown with white line on the face, legs, tail and has a high twining rate; Saanem which is white with pink skin pigmentation and has high twining rate, Anglo Nubian which is whitish brown with long drooping ears and adapted ...

When buying a goat from someone in this manner you are able to go to the home and observe the condition of the animal. Make sure they all look healthy and happy. Talk with the owner about any problems you should be aware of, current immunization records and the goats medical history or genetics. Look the goat over with a fine tooth comb -- literally -- goat lice are very easy to spot and you dont want to infect your other animals at home. Lice are easy to get rid of but the medication can be costly, better to have the seller take care of any lice issues before you purchase! If you are buying an older goat make sure their bag sits well and has a healthy tone. Look for diseases - goats are prone to CAE (a joint disease). Most breeders or ranches are ethical enough not to sell a sick goat but again - buyer beware. If you ...
Introduction Indigenous goats are important animals in many countries because they possess genotype that makes them withstand unfavourable nutritional conditions and also they are known to be cheap in their maintenance. Consequently, these animals are predominantly kept by rural poor population for their livelihood and food security. In Africa, these animals are found in large numbers due to the aforesaid reasons and also due to their importance in traditional feasts. Zarkawi et al., (1999) reported that these animals are kept as dual purpose breeds (i.e. they are kept for both meat and milk production). Boer (Capra hircus) and indigenous (Nguni Feral) goats are regarded as original South African meat producing goats (Lu, undated). In addition, this author has also reported that the Boer goats origin unlike that of the Indigenous goat is unclear. It is believed that Boer goats have originated from the genetic pool of African Indigenous goat, Indian goats, Angora goats and some European dairy ...

Detection of reconstituted goat milk in raw goat milk. It is difficult to distinguish the difference between the heating goat milk and the reconstituted goat milk. In the past, researchers were focus on thermal denaturation of. protein and fluorescent material of Millard reaction products to distinguish them. In this study, we used determination of lactulose concentration to distinguish the difference between the heating goat milk and the reconstituted goat milk. Lactulose was formed by isomerization of lactose and be regarded usefully to distinguish UHT and sterilized milk. In this experiment, we used Resorcinol-HCl solution adds in different degrees of heating milk samples, measured the absorbance at 482nm. The method is rapider and simpler than HPLC, GC and other methods and detect limits was 70.0μg/ml. The raw goat milk had 3.06 mg/mL lactulose. The raw milk heated with 0~90 min and the lactulose content trended to increase with heated time. There was 3.63 mg/mL lactulose when raw milk ...
The aim of the study was to assess small-scale farmers attitude and willingness to consume goat milk and its products. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data from 151 household farmers by using a 15% random sampling technique. Data were analysed using descriptive frequencies and chi-square tests to check for any association between the variables and farmers willingness to consume goat milk and its products. The results showed that a large share (41.78%) of the respondents do not consume goat milk. Taste (20.83%), cultural bias (8.33%), strong smell and natural dislike (64.58%) were some reasons why farmers do not consume goat milk. Some proportions (38.10%) of farmers were not aware of any nutritional benefits of goat milk. However, when these benefits were explained to them, a high percentage (93.10%) of these farmers indicated their willingness to consume goat milk and/or its products based on its nutritional benefits. Age, gender and educational status had a significant influence (P
Dairy goats are not nearly as numerous as dairy cattle in the United States, but, for many other countries of the world, they are the leading milk producers because they are well adapted to limited areas and require less specialized feed, most of which can be produced by the small land owner. There are actually more people consuming dairy goat products in the world than those consuming the products from dairy cattle. This is because the goat population is large in mountainous areas where they can thrive on grass and browse on brush; whereas, the limited feed in these areas will not support dairy cattle. The goat is very helpful to people in small, hilly, dry, countries. In this country, the dairy goat eats much the same feeds as dairy cattle because we have the land areas to grow these feeds. As our populations expand and there is more competition for land areas, dairy goat numbers may increase. The animals are ideal for the small rural dweller that works in the city and lives in the country ...
Introduction. Body weight is one of the most important selection criteria in almost any sheep- and goat-breeding enterprise. In many sheep breeds, continuous selection for increased body weight has led to a situation where a further increase in body weight is contra-indicated. This is not the case in Angora goats, however, where there is still a positive relationship between ewe body weight and reproductive performance (Snyman, 2010a). Many of the problems encountered in Angora goats - such as high kid mortality rates (Snyman, 2010b), poor post weaning growth rates (Snyman, 2007) and low reproductive rate of young ewes (Snyman, 2010a) - could be linked to body weight. Body weight should therefore be one of the most important criteria in the selection programme of Angora goats. Angora goat stud breeders use a selection index that emphasizes increasing body weight (Snyman et al., 1996). However, not many use performance testing and objective measurement of body weight. Much of the selection for ...

What producers can do to prevent introduction and reduce transmission. Slowly progressive illnesses like Caprine Arthritis-Encephalitis (CAE) in goats are major production limiting diseases that can be a source of significant stress and economic loss for farmers.. Once an animal has the CAE virus, it results in a persistent, lifelong infection. Most goats dont show any symptoms but can be carriers, which means they can transmit the disease to other animals in the herd. There is currently no treatment or vaccine, and the prevalence across Ontario is unknown.. Thats why Ontario Goat has recently partially funded two research projects at the University of Guelph focused on learning more about the disease, its prevalence and how it behaves on Ontario goat farms.. Determining CAE prevalence. A preliminary study of 45 randomly selected Ontario goat herds - 30 dairy goat breeders and 15 meat goat operations - was carried out in 2012 to determine how widespread the CAE virus infection is in the ...
Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite that infects almost all warm-blooded animals and human beings. Goats are one of the susceptible animals to T. gondii. However, little is known of genetic diversity of T. gondii in Yunnan black goats in China. The objective of this present study was to determine the genotypes of T. gondii isolates from black goats in Yunnan province, southwest China. Genomic DNA was extracted from liver (n = 403), lung (n = 403) and lymph nodes (n = 250) of Yunnan black goats and assayed for T. gondii infection by semi-nested PCR of B1 gene. Then, the positive DNA samples were typed at 10 genetic markers using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) technology. These markers include 9 nuclear loci, namely, SAG1, SAG2 (5-SAG2 and 3-SAG2, alternative SAG2), SAG3, BTUB, GRA6, c22-8, c29-2, L358, PK1, and an apicoplast locus Apico. Out of 403 tested samples, 20 (4.96%) DNA samples were T. gondii positive by amplification of

These results indicated that kefir use increased polarization of the immune response towards TH1 type and decreased TH2 type response and accordingly allergic response. Thank you for reading and stay tuned! I had my little helper with me as well. Although the mineral content of goats milk and cows milk is generally similar, goats milk contains 13 percent more calcium, 25 percent more vitamin B-6, 47 percent more vitamin A, 134 percent more potassium, and three times more niacin. Goats milk is less allergenic. This is spread out, preferably. Goats are raised on nutritious year-round diet of natural NON-GMA alfalfa hay ( up to 96 % of total diet), free pasture as much as the goats take in, and a grain ration that includes a protein, mineral and gut health source.

Genetic survey of Ontario goat herds to determine prevalence of resistance and susceptibility. Ontarios goat industry has received funding to test goat breeds and herds for genotypes that may confer resistance and susceptibility to scrapie, a slow-moving but fatal central nervous system disease in goats and sheep that limits productivity and poses a severe risk to the viability of the industry.. This project was made possible thanks to newly completed research on genetic resistance and susceptibility to scrapie in goats by Dr. Bradley White at Trent University. Analysis of samples from infected and unaffected goats in two scrapie outbreaks in Ontario last year led the researchers to identify specific genotypes in those herds that were associated with scrapie resistance and susceptibility.. The future ability to genotype live goats for scrapie resistance and susceptibility would be a significant development, says dairy goat farmer and Ontario Goat President Anton Slingerland. As a farmer, I ...
The main product of Angora goats is their mohair fiber (not to be confused with Angora fiber, which is produced from rabbits).. An Angora goats fleece grows at a rate of one inch per month and they are shorn twice per year, typically in the spring and fall. Each goat yields an average of five to 10 pounds of mohair at each shearing.. The fiber from the youngest goats is the finest and most valuable because an Angoras fleece continually coarsens with age.. Mohair has strength and durability unmatched by wool, and as a dyer and fiber artist, the beauty of the dyed yarn is second only to silk, says yarn designer Sherry Brooks.. Brooks, and her husband Randall, manage a flock of 100 colored Angoras on their farm in Lancaster, Texas. Fiber from their goats, along with purchased white kid mohair, makes the basis of their upscale hand-dyed yarn line, which is marketed at fiber festivals across the country. Mohairs affinity for dye produces colors with clarity and luster that makes it unique when ...
A retrospective study of brain lesions in goats was conducted to identify the range of lesions and diseases recognized and to make recommendations regarding the best tissues to examine and tests to conduct in order to maximize the likelihood of making a definitive diagnosis in goats that may have had clinical signs referable to the brain. One hundred thirty-nine goats with a brain lesion were identified. The most common lesion, in 52.5% of the goats, was suppurative inflammation. Approximately two-thirds of these goats had encephalitic listeriosis. Other goats were found to have suppurative inflammation in association with septicemia, pituitary abscesses, dehorning injury, and otitis. Thirty goats (21.6%) were diagnosed with polioencephalomalacia. Twenty-one goats (15.1%) were diagnosed with nonsuppurative inflammation. In more than half of these goats, no definitive diagnosis was made, while 8 were infected with Caprine arthritis encephalitis virus and 1 with Rabies virus. However, few goats ...
Mairi Doerrs history with goats runs deep and wide. She made goat cheese commercially for many years and today raises meat goats and introduces these animated animals to guests at Dancing Winds Farmstay in southwestern Minnesota. We had the pleasure of experiencing Dancing Winds when Doerr hosted one of Lisas In Her Boots women-farmer workshops.. I love raising goats because they are so full of personality, smart, very sociable, entertaining to observe and just plain fun, says Doerr, as she attends to her evening barn chores. She currently raises African Boer goats for meat. The breed is mostly white in color with darker heads and pendulous ears. During her goat cheese-making days, she also raised a variety of dairy goats, including Saanens, goats of Norwegian origin that are known as the Holsteins of the goat world. Doerr is on a mission to help increase interest in and awareness of the benefits of goat meat.. Goat meat, which is properly known as chevon, is very undervalued here in ...

The aim of the present transversal descriptive study was to determine the exposure and risk factors associated with caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus (CAEV) in southern Spain. A total of 3,312 serum samples were collected from goat belonging to three different breeds coming from 48 flocks located in different geographic areas from southern Spain. In addition, health and productive parameters were surveyed during the visit to the herds. Serum samples were analysed by INgezim Maedi Screening (Ingenasa®) ELISA kit. The total percentage of herds exposed to CAEV was 87.71% (CI95 78.42-97.00). A total of 733 goats were seropositive with overall seroprevalence of 23.22% (CI95 21.78-24.65). The intraherd seroprevalence was 20.82%±24.07. Multivariate logistic regression showed significant association between CAEV and the next variables: (i) herd size (P,0.0001; OR: 2.07; CI95: 1.73-2.50), (ii) kidding area (P,0.0020; OR: 1.38; CI95: 1.13-1.69), (iii) cleaning and disinfection program (P,0.0067; OR: ...
CAPRINE arthritis-encephalitis (CAE) is an important infectious disease that contributes to low productivity of goat herds in developing countries. Many factors, such as breed and production system, have been reported to interfere in its occurrence. Nevertheless, the effect of farmer association (cooperatives) in its control has never been investigated. Therefore, the goal of this study was to report a difference of caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus (CAEV) seroreactivity by agar gel immunodiffusion test (AGID) in associated versus non-associated farmers in the same region in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. A total of 562 blood samples were sampled from 28 goat herds. Animals were randomly selected from each herd. A total 79 of 562 (14.0 per cent) serum samples were reactive for CAEV. According to the serology, 80 per cent of the herds belonging to independent farmers presented at least one seroreactive animal, with a herd level average among those of 25.7 per cent (11.1 to 62.5 per cent; median ...
Mississippi Small Ruminant Livestock Small ruminant livestock include goats and sheep. An unofficial survey of livestock markets in Mississippi conducted in August 1995, indicated approximately 14,000 head of goats were sold from August 1994 to July 1995. There were no numbers available on sheep and lambs in Mississippi due to insignificant numbers. The 2002 Census of Agriculture reported that the value of Mississippi sales of goats, sheep and their products was $673,000 annually. This number has increased substantially. State goat inventory as of 2005 was 24,500 meat goats and 1,800 milk goats. Again, no numbers were available on sheep and lambs. However, this will change in the future as the popularity of hair sheep continues to increase in the state. In 2014, the number of meat goats was 19,000 with dairy (milk) goats at 2,000. Nationwide total sheep and lamb numbers in 2015 were up 1%. In Mississippi the majority of goats and sheep were sold by the head on a year round basis with the largest runs
In order to investigate the practices of goat breeding and establish a classification of goat herds, a survey was conducted with 106 goat breeders in the semi-arid region of Laghouat. Two indigenous breeds were encountered in this survey: the Arabia and the Mekatia; the Arabia being found as the dominant. The results show that breeders choose the breeding goats with a goal of generating more income in cash from the sale of products. The goat milk marketing chain appears to be weak. The milk produced is primary used for home consumption. A multivariate analysis categorized the goat farming of Laghouat region into three groups corresponding to three different farming systems: cluster 1 (pastoral system), cluster 2 (mixed crop-livestock system) and cluster 3 (small herds in zero grazing system). The in-depth study of the goals and contexts of goat farming in Laghouat will allow policy makers to design strategies for sustainable development of goat breeding in the region.

Over twenty years ago, we had a request from the man who originated The Cellar at Macys. I want the Dutch Goat cheese I tasted when I was in Holland, he said. We took a trip to Amsterdam and inquired on his behalf to all of our suppliers and any cheese producers we could find. We had no success. There was not an ounce of Dutch goat cheese anywhere! Two decades since that adventure, Dutch goat cheese is still a rarity, except, that is, for Goat Gouda. A few entrepreneurial Dutchmen discovered that Gouda, the cheese people most commonly associate with Holland, could be made from goats milk as well. Goat Gouda has proven wildly popular in Europe and is starting to turn heads here in the States, too. This silken, bright white cheese is now manufactured by several Dutch cheese producers.

I had a goat cheese yesterday at a local food event that was terrific. Creamy and smooth and not too sour. Goat cheese gets a little sour as time goes on. The best goat cheese I ever had was from an organic goat farm in the Bay Area. Their gimmick is that they package it with edible flowers on top. Very pretty. If you see that cheese, get some. Of course, when I had it, it was inside a goat a day or two before, so again, freshness matters. I like goat cheese, but the stuff in the supermarket is never terribly fresh. Also, let it get to room temperature before you eat it. Its much better that way (same is true for most cheeses). ...
Installment #2 of how to make cheese. Heres the mozzarella post if you missed it! More tips on the process from Mr. Matt:. Goat cheese is actually way easier to make than the mozzarella, and its probably the recommended type of cheese to try for your first attempt.

Just buy a goat cheese kit and youll have everything you need (assuming you have a pot and a colander in your kitchen!). Most recipes are written to turn one gallon of goat milk into about 2 pounds of goat cheese. For these pictures we halved the recipe just because I wanted to experiment with the extra cheese culture. ...
Anaemia caused by wireworm can occur due to haemorrhage from the abomasum wall in per acute infestations. In more chronic forms the anaemia may be aggravated by the depletion of iron reserves which reduced the ability of the goat to manufacture new red blood cells. The blood protein, albumin, becomes reduced resulting in the drop of blood oncotic pressure, oedema and bottle jaw. Some Angora goats that are chronically infected over months may lose weight and get weaker but not show significant anaemia or oedema ...

What Predators Do Goats Have?. Livestock animals are always susceptible to predation. They can too often become an easy target. Captive goats have to look out for coyotes, foxes, wolves, mountain lions, and bobcats. Even domestic dogs can attack a goat from time to time.. As for those in the wild, it depends on the region. Wolves and mountain lions most commonly hunt down mountain goats. They also have to watch out for grizzly bears and eagles that will go after their young. Wolves, lynxes, foxes, bears, eagles and snow leopards can take down an adult alpine ibex. Although not a predator, these individuals can also fall off cliffs, resulting in a close call.. Can Horns Be Used to Identify Age?. Did you know that a goat could be aged using its horns? Some species are easier to read than others. The mountain goat is among the most straightforward when identifying age. When looking at a picture of their horns, you will notice ridges, some of which extend around the front and back of the horn. ...

This study aimed to assess the antibiotic susceptibility of Lactobacillus strains of goat milk origin. Lactobacilli are generally recognized as safe, but can act as reservoir for genes carrying antibiotic resistance traits; which can further spread to commensal, food spoilage or pathogenic organisms. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains coming from animal sources had significant interaction with antibiotics. Goat milk, being second to cow milk in production and due to its close resemblance to human milk composition, is among favorable source for isolating potential probiotic LAB strains. Herein, this study assessed the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of fourteen Lactobacillus strains isolated from goat milk. The antibiotic susceptibility was recorded against thirty antibiotics following standard disk-diffusion assay. Imipenem, meropenem and nitrofurantoin turned out to be the most effective antibiotics, displaying high zone of inhibition (ZOI) against all the isolates. In contrast, all

The pharmacokinetic parameters were described by a two-compartment open model. The results indicated that there were significant differences between the two species in some kinetic parameters of ampicillin and oxytetracycline but not gentamicin, Ampicillin elimination halflife (t( 1/4 β)) in goats (1.20 h) was shorter than that in sheep (2.48 h), and its clearance (Cl) significantly higher in goats (2921 mL/h · kg) compared to sheep (262 mL/h · kg) (P ,0.01). Ampicillin volume of ...
SHEBOYGAN, Wis.-If you lost a pygmy goat recently, the Sheboygan County Humane Society may have it. Sheboygan resident Erik Jensen was walking on the beach Wednesday when he saw the 45-pound gray pygmy goat lying in the snow. He tells The Sheboygan Press he figured it would die if he didnt bring it home. He took the shivering goat to the Humane Society shelter, where the staff named her Grace. Shelter manager Carey Payne says the staff is spending a lot of time with Grace because shes very sweet. Officials are hoping to find the rightful owner before they put Grace up for adoption next week. Payne says no one has reported a missing goat. Payne figures Grace wandered off a hobby farm, although there isnt one in the immediate area. --- Information from: The Sheboygan Press, http://www.sheboygan-press.com. ...
Caprine arthritis encephalitis (CAE) virus is a member of the small ruminant lentiviruses (also includes ovine progressive pneumonia, or OPP, of sheep), which may lead to chronic disease of the joints, and on rare occasions, encephalitis in goat kids less than six months of age. The CAE virus is intimately associated with white blood cells; therefore, any body secretions that contain blood cells are potential sources of virus to other goats in the herd. Since not all goats that become infected with CAE virus develop clinical disease, it is important to test goats routinely for infection by means of a serologic test that detects viral antibodies in the serum.

S. bovis is a lactate-producing bacterial species in the rumen. Because of its prominent role in inducing rumen acidosis, understanding the regulatory mechanisms of S. bovis will help us elucidate the microbiological mechanism of this condition. We used multiple measures to examine and identify the strain isolated from the rumen of Saanen goats. Gram staining illustrated that it was Gram positive. Observations of cell morphology showed an aspheric shape with a diameter of approximately 1 μm and aggregations similar to strings of beads, consistent with the original definition of S. bovis by Orla-Jensen in 1919 (29). The 16S rRNA gene (1,461 bp) sequence of the isolate shared high homology with the rRNA gene of S. bovis ATCC 27960 (GenBank accession number AB002481.1) isolated from swine and S. bovis JB1 (AF104109.1) isolated from the rumen of cows (30, 31). While the taxonomic status of S. bovis and close relatives such as S. equinus has been the subject of much discussion over many years (32), ...
These goats are giving us major anxiety. It looks like their just one wrong move from plummeting to their death. How did they even climb up there anyway? They dont even have opposable thumbs. How is this possible? Goats hooves are not your ordinary hooves. They are sharp and allow them to dig into the surface of cliffs. Their hooves are soft on the bottom, which allows their feet to seamlessly mold to the natural curves of the mountain. This is how they achieve their magical balance. As nerve-wracking as it is to look at, its unlikely these little fellows will fall down.. ...
The effects of the dietary oils with differing fatty acid profiles on rumen fermentation, microbial population, and digestibility in goats were investigated. In Experiment I, rumen microbial population and fermentation profiles were evaluated on 16 fistulated male goats that were randomly assigned to four treatment groups: i) control (CNT), ii) olive oil (OL), iii) palm olein oil (PO), and iv) sunflower oil (SF). In Experiment II, another group of 16 male goats was randomly assigned to the same dietary treatments for digestibility determination. Rumen ammonia concentration was higher in CNT group compared to treatment groups receiving dietary oils. The total VFA and acetate concentration were higher in SF and OL groups, which showed that they were significantly affected by the dietary treatments. There were no differences in total microbial population. However, fibre degrading bacteria populations were affected by the interaction between treatment and day of sampling. Significant differences were
Myostatin or growth and differentiation factor 8 (GDF8), is a skeletal muscle regulator factor that determines muscle mass in animals including human beings. Mutation in the myostatin gene sequence controls its regulating function and results in growth via hypertrophy of muscles. Mutation in myostatin gene has been found in various species of animals and has three exons and two introns in all species. Considering the MSTN gene as a candidate gene for gene assisted selection for growth traits, the present study was aimed to study its polymorphism and its association in Boer and Bakerwal goats in Kashmir valley. We screened polymorphism of the myostatin gene in 600 goats from two goat populations (Boer and Bakerwal) and applied PCR and DNA sequencing analysis to reveal single nucleotide polymorphisms (g.368A|C (p.Lys to Thr). At g.368A|C locus, the frequencies of g.368A allele were 0.70-0.80, and the frequencies of g.368C allele were 0.20-0.30 in Boer goats. And at g.368A|C locus, the frequencies

Yet another charity is jumping on the Goat Bandwagon. Age International is using cute little Pygmy Goats to front a campaign calling on grandparents to donate unwanted belongings to high street charity shops.. According to Age International, if we donate old clothes and clutter to Age UK charity shops, some of the money raised could be used, for example, to buy goats for old people in developing countries. The charity says it costs £18 to buy a goat, which will supply an old person with milk, fertiliser and income. At the risk of being told off for criticising other charities, I would like to know if Age International has carried out any environmental impact assessments, or any assessments of the social impact of doling out goats to older people overseas.. Perhaps Age International doesnt know that goats are considered a cause of poverty in many parts of Africa. Perhaps the charity is unaware that almost every wildlife conservationist and every environmentalist believes that the problem in ...
The following recipe honors the zucchini, its elegant presentation restoring respect and dignity to this much maligned vegetable - er, fruit. (According to Wikipedia, it is an immature fruit; the swollen ovary of the female zucchini flower.) I selected medium to medium-large zucchinis (in the 5-6-inch length range), and - with a surgeons precision - sliced them into strips, grilled, then served them daintily coiled with goat cheese and red pepper.. Back to that aforementioned farmers market zucchini. It remained, unsold, by days end. I hope the city doesnt issue it a parking ticket or have it towed.. Note: The following recipe was inspired by a Grilled Zucchini Roll-Up recipe card I picked up in a recipe card carousel next to the seafood department at the Meijer on Carpenter Road. The only change I made was using plain goat cheese instead of herbed goat cheese. Also, the recipe took me about 3 times longer to make than the card indicated. That carousel, by the way, was packed with ...
