Dough from Doe$

Dough from Doe$ is an initiative of Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and the Goat Industry Council of Australia (GICA).

The aim of the project is to identify and promote ways of improving the reproductive performance of meat goat herds in Australia. It will also identify areas for future research.

The first phase of the project involves:

  • An international literature review of advanced breeding systems in goats and related species;
  • Survey and case studies of advanced goat breeding systems in Australia and internationally;
  • Review of extension material on goat breeding; and
  • Development of recommendations for further research and extension.

The project is being conducted for MLA by Forest Hill Consulting. For further information on the project, click here

Forest Hill is very keen to hear from goat meat producers with an interest in this area, and in particular those running an advanced breeding system. For further information on becoming involved, click here.
