Goats’ meat is an important nutrient source. Goats were among the first animals to be domesticated by humans over 10,000 years ago and today, over two hundred different breeds provide meat, milk and textile fiber for people around the world. Due to the relatively low cost of raising goats, it is an affordable and important resource in many developing countries. According to the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization, nearly 93% of all goat livestock are found in Asia and Africa. As such, an estimated 70% of the world’s population consumes goat meat as part of their regular diet.
