AFSRC scientists are developing small ruminant finishing systems, including applications of medicinal plants for improving animal health with the specific goal of producing an 80-pound meat goat with a carcass having a high lean to fat ratio and meat with consumer benefits. This goat is temporarily housed in a controlled environment for an experiment to study plant materials that have potential value in meeting meat goat health and performance, and carcass and meat quality objectives.
