The superior germplasm of goat and buffalo

Goat and buffalo husbandry are becoming a lucrative enterprise in the developing counters. The Shami breed can produce half milk of bovines characterized by a long reddish-colored coat with long ears and a Roman nose with various subtypes ranging from North America through the Middle East into Asia. The Shami goat has received special attention by farmers, by virtue of its early maturity, higher milk production, meat and high percentage of twins and triplets, in comparison to other breeds. The river buffalo produce high milk with more than 11% fat (Bubalus bubalis), which can be found from India and further west to Egypt and some parts of Europe.
