Hormone-free non-seasonal or seasonal goat reproduction for a sustainable European goat-milk market

Objective

FLOCK-REPROD will provide the European dairy goat industry with the innovative, economically and environmentally-viable technology necessary to enable the hormone-free production of goat’s milk and related products (e.g. cheese). It will achieve this by controlling reproduction via artificial insemination (AI) all year round. FLOCK-REPROD technology will allow the EU dairy goat industry to operate in full conformity with EC regulation (96/22/EC) which restricts the use of exogenous hormones (currently used by the majority of dairy goat breeders using AI) and which will be reinforced more strictly in the very near future. In this manner, FLOCK-REPROD will ensure the future sustainability of the industry from both an economical and ecological perspective. FLOCK-REPROD will enable the EU dairy goat industry to respond to the growing demand for goat-milk products including organic goat-milk products via a consistent supply of hormone-free goat’s milk all year round.
