Overview –
The Dairy Goat Industry in Texas
As a tribute to the many Texans who raise dairy goats, this directory has been prepared to assist with marketing quality
Texas dairy goat genetics. The Texas Department of Agriculture facilitates sales of Texas dairy goats to many countries,
with Mexico being our biggest customer. Our hopes are to increase global exports of Texas dairy goat genetics by pro-
viding interested buyers with this comprehensive listing of Texas dairy goat producers.
Second to none, the Lone Star State is known as the livestock capital of the world – a distinction Texas producers have
worked hard to achieve. As leaders in the production of beef cattle, horses, sheep and goats, Texas producers are com-
mitted to offering the best choice and variety of livestock. Texas produces the six nationally recognized breeds of dairy
goats – Alpine, LaMancha, Nubian, Oberhasli, Saanen and Toggenburg. The dairy goat industry plays an important role
in making Texas the nation’s top goat producer.
Texans enjoy raising dairy goats for many reasons, whether starting production as a youth project, a hobby or just to har-
vest their own milk and meat. In prime lactation, a dairy goat will average a gallon of milk daily for over 300 days. Two
such goats can provide more than enough milk for an average size family. On a worldwide basis, more people drink the
milk of goats than that of any other single animal. Goat milk naturally has smaller fat particles and may be easier to
digest. It is also a good source of protein and an excellent source of calcium, potassium, riboflavin and phosphorous.

Producing high quality milk efficiently is the primary purpose of the dairy goat. Accordingly, milk production is a major
dairy goat selection criterion. Parity, or lactation number, in addition to age, has a large influence on milk and fat yield in
dairy goats. The average difference in 305-day milk yields between the first and second goat lactation is approximately
300 pounds. Factors accounting for this variation in parity include the effects of previous lactation and seasonal breeding.
It is also important to keep in mind that seasonal breeding can influence the length of lactation, which in turn affects
yields.
Many dairy goats, in their prime, average six to eight pounds of milk daily (roughly three to four quarts) during a 10-
month lactation, giving more after freshening and gradually dropping in production toward the end of their lactation.
The milk generally averages 3.5 percent butterfat. A doe may be expected to reach her heaviest production during her
third or fourth lactation.
Hardy, gentle, intelligent animals, dairy goats are usually seasonal breeders, and their season is initiated by decreasing
daylight. Most breeding occurs in late summer through early winter. Goats have an 18 to 21-day estrus cycle or “season.”
The doe’s season lasts from a few hours to two or three days. The gestation period is five months. Twins are common,
but single or triplet births are not rare. A doe milks approximately 10 months following kidding and then is held dry for
two months before her next freshening. The dairy goat lifespan is 8 to 12 years.
The selling price of does and their offspring is enhanced if those animals are registered with documented parentage and
if high milk records are documented through a Dairy Herd Improvement Records testing program.
Whether you are interested in starting a dairy goat herd or are expanding your present one, we hope you find this direc-
tory a helpful resource in locating Texas dairy goat genetics and learning more about the breeds produced in the Lone
Star State that will best meet your needs.

Procedures to Ensure a Smooth
Livestock Export Transaction
Making a sale to a foreign market is not much different than selling to a neighbor, with a few minor
exceptions. Once the foreign buyer has selected the animals and the selling price has been determined,
the following steps will help ensure a smooth transaction:
•   Request a down payment to cover your costs of testing the animals for export. This is a common practice.
•   Determine with the buyer how and when final payment will be made. Payments can be cash,
    wire transfer to your bank, a United States bank check that can be confirmed or a letter of credit.
•   Determine if the animals are to be sold free on board (FOB) ranch or if the sale price includes delivery to the port
    of entry. If the buyer is responsible for delivery to the port of entry, help him locate a trucker. You will be more
    familiar with truckers in your area, and the buyer will appreciate your help.
•   Ask the buyer through which port the animals will enter his country and establish how you will give notice when
    the animals are ready for delivery - you may inform the buyer or deal directly with a broker at the port of entry.
    Before the buyer leaves your ranch, make sure you have his name, address and telephone number and the
    telephone numbers of the person or firm receiving the animals.
•   Call your local veterinarian. Explain that you have sold livestock to a foreign buyer and need to have them tested
    for export. Your veterinarian will know the procedures and necessary tests. Veterinarians with questions may

                                                                                           C o m m i s s i o n e r To d d S t a p l e s

    contact the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) at (512) 916-5555. Your veterinarian will prepare an export
    health certificate for the animals. This document will be sent to Austin with any necessary blood samples. The health
    certificate will be officially endorsed by USDA. The endorsement charge varies from species to species so it is
    advisable to call USDA to find out what the charges will be. Your veterinarian will charge you for his services and
    the official export health document. Remember that this added expense is your responsibility.
    You will need to price your livestock accordingly.
•   Give each animal an identification number. This can be a brand, tattoo or ear tag. Your veterinarian will
    need these numbers to identify the animals on the health certificates. Numbered ear tags that can be read
    at a distance are usually best.
•   Provide an invoice to the buyer. The invoice should include the seller’s name and address, the buyer’s name and
    address, number and sex of animals purchased and the price. This invoice and the export health certificate will
    accompany the livestock to the port of entry.
•   Expect to receive full payment for your livestock before the animals leave the United States, also standard practice.
•   Call the person or firm receiving the animals when you have secured the export health certificates and prepared
    your invoice. Set a delivery date. Contact the appropriate Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) export facility and
    confirm the date of delivery. Normal working hours for TDA export facilities are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to
    5 p.m.

If you have questions, contact the Texas Department of Agriculture at (512) 463-7560.

    elaboración de los certificados de salud para exportación, basados en los requisitos del país importador. El criador
    Texano es responsable de la elaboración de los mismos, contactando para ello a su médico veterinario, y este, a su
    vez, se regirá a travéz de la oficina de exportación del Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA,
    por sus siglas en inglés) donde le proporcionarán los requisitos exactos que cada país requiere. Es importante
    mencionar que estos certificados de exportación generalmente tienen una fecha de expiración de 30 días despues de
    haberse expedido y el tiempo de preparación es de aproximadamente 10 días laborales. También es importante
    recordar que los animales seleccionados deben estar perfectamente identificados, ya sea con arete en la oreja, fierro

   en una parte visible, ya sea en tren posterior o en ocasiones se marca en el nacimiento del hombro. El tatuaje es
   otra práctica muy común y en algunos países es requisito aretar y tatuar el ganado para facilitar su identificación.
3. Transportación.
   Es recomendable que usted discuta todo lo que envuelve este punto con el propio criador Texano ya que el no
   hacerlo puede causar confusión de último minuto al tener el ganado listo para el envío.
4. Requisitos legales.
   Es importante que el ganadero comprador esté familiarizado con los requisitos de su país destinatario ya que es
   importante proporcionar la información correcta y adecuada para la elaboración de los certificados de salud,
   tales como:
