Red Sokoto vs Sahelian Goats - Henlus - 07-31-2019

One research compared these 2 goats and here are the results.

Red sokoto kids grow faster (66.9g/day) than Sahelian goats (46.6g/day). Red sokoto kids have lower birth weight (1kg vs 2.2kg) and lower weaning weight (3.9kg vs 5.6kg). Milk yield between the two was not significantly different.

The Red sokoto is also called Maradi. Sahelian goats are also called West African longlegged. Sahelian goats can't survive for long in forest and dense savannah and they're not tolerant to trypanosomiasis.
