The robust-looking Jamunapari goats exhibited at Anthiyur Cattle Fair attracted hundreds of curious visitors. Originally coming from Uttar Pradesh, these goats are now being reared by many farmers in the district According to them, the goats can weigh up to 65 kilograms, and appear almost as big as a calf. According to a caretaker of Dheeran Goat Farm based in Kallimadaipudur near Kodumudi in the district, the milk of Jamunapari goats could fetch as much as Rs. 150 to Rs. 200 per litre. The price of well-grown Jamunapari goats themselves range between Rs. 30,000 and Rs. 40,000. However, officials of Animal Husbandry Department say, the breed may not bring in returns to farmers.
“Most of those who rear this goat with its strongly arched Roman nose and long pendulous ears own them as pets.” The ears can grow to about 12 inches on adults. There is not much difference either in the nutritive properties or taste of the meat. At the most, the meat could be sold for Rs. 500 per kilogram. Farmers usually do not opt for this breed because it gives birth to only one kid per cycle. Ultimately, it is the meat value that counts for livestock breeders, a senior official said, explaining the reason for the goats not gaining popularity in the district.
