Hi-Pro introduces game changers for expansion of goat industry

The planned introduction by Hi-Pro of select breeds of goats and a total mixed ration to the local market have been hailed by both the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) and the Small Ruminants Association of Jamaica (SRAJ) as timely and necessary for the growth of the goat industry. These breeds include the Saanens, Boer and Anglo Nubian – new genetic lines of exotic local breeds.

“This intervention by Hi-Pro will be a game changer,” said Trevor Bernard, president of the SRAJ, while Lenworth Fulton, president of the JAS, has described the move by Hi-Pro as a “win-win situation”.

Dr O’Shane McHugh, veterinarian at Hi-Pro, noted that Hi-Pro would be introducing new genetic lines within local herds through a reproduction technology programme, which should result in higher milk yield and meat-to-bone ratio for the local market.

“This insemination programme is aimed at producing more does to provide milk for human *consumption, as well as value added by-products such as cheese and skincare items; also, bucks for goat meat. Insemination is vital for new bloodlines to be added to the existing herds. This is a part of Hi-Pro’s five-year plan for the small ruminant industry, which will also be looking at embryo transfer to take advantage of the swift multiplication of superior traits within the selected milk and meat breeds,” he noted.
