Dairy Goats, Feeding and Nutrition
by A. Cannas
Goat’s milk is used for drinking and making cheese and yoghurt. Among non-genetic
factors, feeding is the main factor influencing milk composition and transformation
properties. Feeds can also transfer toxic or undesirable substances to milk.
Many studies on the effects of nutrition on goat’s milk quality have focused on
milk fat content and milk fatty acid (FA) profile.
