Abstract
As a general rule the keeping of goats in Tanganyika does not appeal to the European, possibly because he is not accustomed to handling these animals and also because he associates the goat with a characteristic repulsive -smell. Whatever the reason, goat-keeping is ‘almost entirely in the hands of Africans and Asiatics. The latter people have imported milk goats from India, though not in large numbers, and they have crossed these with our local types to produce an animal which with reasonable care and management is capable of giving enough milk to feed its offspring and a small surplus to supply the requirements of its owner, at any rate in part. Such goats can be seen in or around several of the larger townships of the Territory.
