Tennessee Myotonic Goat Arc Of Taste

  1. 1. Tennessee Myotonic Goat Arc of Taste Presentation By Josh Standing
  2. 2. Country and Region <ul><li>United States </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Texas (Large sized goats) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Eastern US (Small Sized Goats) </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Origin <ul><li>No one really knows their origin. </li></ul><ul><li>There are two theories. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the possibilities is that a private herd sold to a Tennessee farmer around 1880 was the beginning of the breed. A man named John Tinsley moved to Tennessee with four goats brought from Nova Scotia. When he moved on a year later, he left his goats behind. </li></ul><ul><li>Second Theory – Genetic Mutation in 1885 which resulted in the recessive gene. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Issues <ul><li>The American Livestock Breed Conservancy has placed this breed of goat on their &quot;rare&quot; list, with an estimated world population of under 10,000. </li></ul><ul><li>They have now been discovered as excellent crossbreed stock for the Boer goat, a meat goat which was imported from South Africa. The &quot;fainting&quot; gene is recessive, therefore it is usually not expressed in crossbred animals. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Long-term Survival <ul><li>  Myotonic goats which have been selected for meat production are heavy rumped, deep chested animals. </li></ul><ul><li>They breed seasonally, are easy kidders and have good milk production. </li></ul><ul><li>Many breeders have noted the breed has the capability to produce two kiddings a year. </li></ul><ul><li>They are good mothers so in most cases a bonding pen is not needed. </li></ul><ul><li>Since they are not good climbers and jumpers they are somewhat easier to keep than other goats. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Key Figures in Survival <ul><li>American Meat Goat Association </li></ul><ul><li>International Fainting Goat Association </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1989 by a group of people who appreciated the Fainting Goat as a breed and wished to see them preserved </li></ul></ul>
