I screwed up the goat table on the last post. I spent a lot of time on the HTML outlining the Production coefficients for a North Dakota Angora Goat Herd and have since realized that there is quite a difference between the Angora breed and the fainting goat.
The Myotonic goat as a landrace breed, is more varied than standardized goat breeds – especially so if it is compared to imported breeds that were started with relatively few goats that all had very similar traits. A landrace type of population means that the Myotonic goat breed survived (and many still do) as an untracked and unmonitored population of locally used goats for local production purposes. Imported and standardized breeds in the US include nearly all the Dairy breeds along with the Angora and Boer goat.
