  Lactation curves of 23 Bornova (25% White Germanx25% Maltasex50% Anglo-Nubian crossbreed) and 37 Turkish Saanen dairy goats were estimated in this study. Individual 427 test-day milk yields were recorded monthly from lambing to drying off. The Wood (WD) and Cobby and Le Du (CL) models were applied to estimate lactation curve parameters of the two breeds. The WD model had greater a parameter (average milk yield at the beginning of the lactation) than CL model. The difference between breeds was significant (p<0.05) for the b parameter related to slope up to peak yield. The two models estimated significantly different pattern of the decline in milk production. Coefficient of determination values (R2) of the models were high and ranged from 0.83 to 0.91. The CL model showed better performance than WD model. Lactation curve characteristics including Peak Yield (PY), Time to Peak Yield (TPY), Total Milk Yields (TMY) and Persistency (P) were also estimated using WD, CL and Fleischmann (FL) methods. WD and CL models forecasted higher PY and earlier TPY in comparison with the FL. TMY and P from two models were lower than those from FL. The effect of breed was significant (p<0.05) on TPY. Correlation coefficients among lactation curve characteristics were ranged from -0.29 to 0.78. The results suggest that CL model was better for the fitting of the test-day milk yields of Turkish Saanen and Bornova goats.

  This study was conducted in order to determine the importance of goat hair and technical and economical characterstics of the workshops where goat hair processed into products in the villages of Olukbasi, Kizilca and Dutagac in the Bozdogan district of Aydin, Turkey. The material of the study consists of 45 enquiries, carried out using the randomly select method to the weavers from these three villages. The ratio of hair-only-weavers and cotton-only-weavers was 68.9 and 17.8%, respectively whereas the number of weavers doing both hair and cotton was 13.3%. The number of people manufacturing hair thread to order was 39 and the ratio of this in the other production forms was 86.7%. Female workers manufactured 3-5 kg of threads daily whereas male workers manufactured 7-10 kg-1 day. The main market enterprise (75.5%) was the sale of the manufactured threads; the other 24.5% of thread was used on their own looms. In conclusion, it could be said that besides processing hair in factories and marketing it, the sustainability of goat hair weaving in traditional family workshops and the increase of their market share will increase the value of goat hair and employment rate positively in the region.

  The aim of this study was to determine the effects of the Body Condition Score (BCS) of 53 Saanen does on their reproductive performance 15 days before mating season and at the beginning of the mating season under raised semi intensive conditions. In this study, the does were synchronized in two different periods, one of which was 15 days before the other. Before the introduction of buck to the goats, the goats were weighed after measuring their BCS. Detailed records were kept for herd in year. It was found significant effects of mating period on body weight of does before mating and fecundity (p<0.05); effects of age on body weight of does before mating (p<0.001), body weight of does on birth (p<0.01), fecundity (p<0.01) and litter size (p<0.05), effect of BCS on body weight of does before mating (p<0.001), fecundity (p<0.01) and litter size (p<0.05). The BCS for the highest fecundity and litter size was determined ≥2.01 while the lowest rates for these traits were ≤1.50. Average of body weight of does before mating, body weight of does on birth, kid birth weigh, fecundity and litter size were 35.65, 42.71, 3.44, 0.65, 0.65 and 1.30 kg, respectively.

  This study has been conducted in order to determine the structure and productivity characteristics of sheep husbandry in The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (NCTR). Sheep farms in the provinces of Lefkosa, Guzelyurt, Girne, G. Magosa and Iskele have been analysed. The data used in analysis are obtained from 218 sheep farms. In sheep farms, fertility traits obtained such as infertility rate, fecundity, the number of lambs weaned per ewe mated and lamb mortality rate are 8.81, 1.17, 1.03 and 16.79%, respectively, growth traits as average marketing weight and marketing age are 39.33 kg and 147.11 days, respectively, milk yield traits as daily average milk yield, milking period and milk yield obtained by milking period are 0.67 kg/day, 96.67 day/year and 66.99 kg/year, respectively and average wool yield for ewe and ram are 1.37 and 2.55 kg, respectively. Average agricultural income per farm is 6281.72 NTL according to the prices of 2002 year of prices.
