Should have posted this before the ‘Jamnapari Doe & 5 Week Old Kid‘ post.
This was the very last of the Jamnapari kidding arrivals for the 2008 season. Buckling weighed in at 3.8 kilo’s after a 154 day gestation.
This Jamnapari buck is a poor representation of its breed. Taken outside Kuching, Sarawak, this is the kind of standards that are prevalent amongst most goat farms there. At most times it is not the fault of the misinformed farmer that they choose to upkeep such low standards but rather are a victim of sellers who promote these as full blooded Jamnaparis when in fact these are crossbred’s.
An example of a average quality Jamnapari Buck near Kuching, Sarawak. They can come larger and much heavier. Supposedly for meat and milk, they seem to be used mainly for meat in Sarawak, but most stocks are prized and kept for breeding. There has been an upsurge in Goat farming in Sarawak in recent months and this breed is in high demand even prompting smuggling from Indonesia.
I saw this handsome bloke last week. There is a clip of this fellow but i need to see how to upload it. Just learned that i can’t upload directly mpeg files. Bleh.
