About Uzbek Black GoatsAbout Uzbek Black Goats



Uzbek Goatsrnare from Uzbekistan and are used for thernproduction of mohair. They were developed by thernmating of predominantly white first and second generation crossbred femalesrnwith purebred white Angora males resulted in the appearance of 1-2% of blackrnkids.


rnrnAfter 4-5 years, there werernalready several hundred black wool goats; they were gathered into one herd andrnfemales were mated only to black males. Such mating produced in the first yearrn64% and in the second 74% of black kids; others were white, tan, grey, etc.rnLater, due to positive assortative mating, it was possible to obtain 94% ofrnblack kids.


rnrnThe black goats are similar tornDon goats in such aspects as fleece structure, physical properties of wool fibersrnand productivity. Uzbek goats have wool fibers longer than guard hairs, exceptrnalong the spine where the latter are very long. Their hair is not shed inrnspring but wool is shed abundantly, starting from the first warm spring daysrnwhen goats pass to grass feeding.


rnrnTheir wool is combed outrnselectively at the time of molting and, as a rule, only once, in mid-March.rnAverage yields per head in collective farms vary from 280 to 440 g. While thernlength and fineness of fibers depend on the level and quality of feeding, woolrnyields are actually determined by the time of combing out the molting fibers.rnShedding is very rapid and 5-10 days delay in combing results in 20-40% lossrnirrespective of age. The extreme limits are 6 and 12 cm in females and evenrnmore in males. Fiber diameter is within the range 15-24 µm; the average forrnfemales is 19 and for males 22 µm. In the young, wool is 1-2 µm finer than inrnadults.


rnrnThe state farm Baisunrnin Namangan region of Uzbeckistan has a goat herd of 10,000 head and isrnconsidered one of the best enterprises for raising black wool goats. Averagernwool yields are 450 g from females, 700 g from males and 600 g from castrates.rnWool goat husbandry in this state farm is very profitable and cost-effective.
