Abstract

Conformation traits are of interest to many dairy goat breeders not only as descriptive traits in their own right, but also because of their influence on production, longevity and profitability. It is important to include conformation traits in the consideration of selection of replacement females, as their functionality and longevity in the herd is dependent on their ability to produce milk without incurring problems associated with structural weakness.
