About Jamnapari GoatsAbout Jamnapari Goats



rnrnJamnapari (or Jamunapari) goats,rnancestors of the American Nubian, originated in Indian and are bred for bothrnmilk and meat. Since 1953 they have been imported to Indonesia (popular asrnEtawa goat, and its mixture with a local goat called "PE", PeranakanrnEtawa or Etawa mix) where they have been a great success. The name is derivedrnfrom the rivers Yamuna, Jamuna (West Bengal) and Jamuna (Bangladesh) of Indiarnand Bangladesh. In India there were an estimated 580,000 of the breed in thern1972, although less than 5000 were thought to be purebred.

rnrnJamnapari Goats vary inrncolor but they typically are white with patches of tan on their neck and head.rnTheir heads tend to have a highly convex nose, which gives them a parrot-likernappearance. They have long flat drooping ears unusually long legs, and bothrngenders have horns.

They have round udders and conicalrnwell-developed teat. Their average lactation yield is slightly less than twornkilograms per day.


rnrnDuring the winter they spend more than 90% ofrntheir time grazing, although this falls to around 55% in the summer. They browsernon bushes, tree leaves, and the top of grasses rather than typical groundrngrazing.
