Breeding Program
for Dairy Goats


Sunday, April 20, 2014

Since 1975 Embrapa Goats and Sheep have been carrying out research work and development for the exploitation of meat goats and sheep. In the area of animal breeding these studies focused on evaluation and conservation of breeds, selection and crossbreeding. However, many of these studies did not have the expected effect, in terms of regionalism, the limited participation of breeders and the absence of a breeding program more comprehensive. Driven the great market demand for meat goats and sheep, increased interest from traditional breeders and the general number of new entrepreneurs interested in this market up, Embrapa Goats and Sheep recognized the new time and launched in 2003, the Breeding Program for Meat Goats and Sheep - GENECOC.
