dc.description.abstract <p>Interest in the milch goat has been stimulated by the world-wide food shortage and a keener appreciation of the food value of milk. Altho goats are kept mainly for the production of mohair, meat and hides, several milk-producing strains are recognized and in some countries a large percentage of the milk produced Is goat's milk. Germany had at the beginning of the war about 4,000,000 milk producing goats which returned annually over three times their capitalized value in the form of milk and by-products. While goats are widely known as scavengers, they must be fed liberally and well managed to secure the highest production. Goats' milk, tho ill adapted for butter making, is excellent for cheese making and !or Infants and invalids. Its apparent freedom from tuberculosis also enhances Its value for these purposes. Goats are not, however, as economical dairy animals as cows, requiring over three and a half times as much feed per quart of milk produced. Care should be exercised by purchasers of goats to secure animals adapted for milk production.</p>
