Also don’t miss Karin’s wonderful teaching aids, for both kids and adults, on  ‘The Biology of the Goat.’  Even if you’re not keen about goats, her animations are very wonderful and worth a look:

Goats have always been the very poor cousin in western livestock research and development – though that is now slowly changing.  Goats are the pre-eminent domestic animal throughout the globe.  It is an example of where Western science has unwittingly allowed into the debate its own prejudices about which breeds of livestock should be the focus of research and development.  I have touched on this topic in several posts, and will be writing more on the subject.
