    1. Chapter 14 - 1 Ovine and Caprine Husbandry: restraint and breed Dr. Dipa Brahmbhatt VMD MPH

    2. Objectives Zoological classification of the species. Terminology associated with the species. Physiological data for the species Prominent anatomical or physiological properties of the species. ID and describe characteristics of common breeds. ID and know the uses of common instruments relevant to the species. Normal living environments and husbandry needs of the species. reproductive practices of the species. Specific nutritional requirements of the species.

    3. Reading Assignment Chapter 14: Ovine and Caprine Husbandry and small ruminants terminology

    4. Zoological Classification of Sheep and Goats • Kingdom: Animal • Phylum: Chordata • Class: Mammalia • Order : Artiodactyla • Family: Bovidae • Genus and species • Ovis Aries • Capra Hircus

    5. Terminology for Sheep Ewe: Adult female Ram: Adult male Wether: Castrated male Yearling ewe: Immature female Lamb: Neonate Wether lamb: Castrated neonate Ram lamb: Intact male neonate Ewe lamb: Female lamb Lambing: Act of parturition

    6. Terminology for Goats Doe/nanny: Mature female Buck/billy: Mature male Wether: Castrated male Yearling doe: Immature female Kid: Neonate Buck kid: Male less than one year Doe kid: Female less than one year Kidding: Act of parturition

    7. Sheep – Ovis aries Tail down Grazers close to soil (short tender grasses and clovers) Distant and aloof Distinct philtrum Curved horns Goats – Capra Hircus Tail up (unless sick) Natural browsers on top of plants (twigs, vine, shrubs) Curious and independent Distinct odor as they mature Straight horns Sheep and Goats: Both family Bovidae

    8. Sheep & Goat Overview • Originated: Europe and cooler regions on Asia. • Important in temperate and tropical agriculture. • Provide fibers, milk, meat, and hides. • Sheep • Milk: more nutritious • Cheese: Feta (Greece, Italy, and France), Ricotta and Pecorino Romano (Italy) and Roquefort (France) • Fiber and meat • Goat: milk, meat, fiber • Versatile and efficient: developing countries.

    9. Sheep & Goat Overview Sheep – declined in the U.S. (less than 0.2% of total farm revenue in U.S.). Mostly import. Avg: 50/ farm • Less demand for wool. • Declining demand for lamb in consumer diets. • Difficulty in obtaining/keeping reliable herders • Competition for public-owned rangeland. • Predators ~ 23% lost before maturity
