This report is a comprehensive review of published information on the body composition and digestive physiology of temperate-zone goats, the composition of their products, meat, milk, and fiber, their voluntary food intake, and their associated energy, protein, mineral and vitamin requirements. The systematic approach is similar to that of earlier reviews of ruminant nutrient requirements published by the Agricultural Research Council in 1980 and 1984. In particular the energy and protein requirements are expressed in terms of Metabolizable Energy (ARC 1980, AFRC 1990) and Metabolizable Protein, using models for cattle and sheep as appropriate; the requirements for calcium and phosphorus are based on factors specified in a separate AFRC report published in 1991. Intended to be the standard reference, The Nutrition of Goats incorporates the most up-to-date findings while identifying where research specific to goats is still lacking.
