Why Shami Goat Farming?
The Cyprus (Damascus) Shami goat is an excellent, highly adaptive and hardy goat. Experience locally and in our export countries confirms that it can be used in pure bred or cross-bred milk or meat production systems, surpassing the production figures of equivalent animals in intensive, semi-intensive or extensive systems.
We already have experience exporting Cyprus Shami goats since 1980 in more than 30 Countries. Everywhere that we send the Cyprus Shami, it reproduces these amazing production figures. Detailed studies in Libya demonstrate that these figures are maintained in pure bred or cross-mated F1 generations with equivalent breeds in destination countries as well as local animals.
We recommend the Cyprus Shami for private breeders who wish to raise a pure herd as well as for rural agricultural development programs internationally. The Cyprus Shami is the ideal goat to support genetic research programs that aim to establish robust income generation projects at the same time as improving the productivity in local genetic lines through cross-breeding.
We want to welcome you to the family of successful Cyprus (Damascus) Shami goat breeders internationally and support your production system in any way that we can.
