Abstract:

Goat is universally recognized as "Poor man’s cow’’. It is a very versatile animal because of short generation interval, browsing habit, low investment, and high rate of prolificacy. Milk is the complete and first food of mammals which provides energy and nutrients needed for the proper growth and development. Goat milk is superior in nutrients and is having better digestibility, alkalinity, buffering capacity and certain therapeutic values. During the entire study the fresh milk samples of Pantja goats according to stage of lactation were analyzed for minerals content. The statistical analysis of the data indicated that the stage of lactation has effect on the minerals content in Pantja goat milk. In the present investigation, calcium level was increased in early lactation followed by the mid and late stage of lactation and also phosphorus level increased in early stage lactation but followed by a late and mid-stage of lactation. Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium level were increased in the late stage of lactation followed by the mid and early stage of lactation. Trace minerals selenium, zinc, iron, and manganese increased in the early stage of lactation followed by the mid and late stage of lactation.
