The Valacta service helps me determine the goat productivity. For each goat, we collect the quantities and components of the milk. 
Also, it is a management tool to schedule reproduction, reform, calving and feed.
It becomes essential in the management of a profitable herd.

Milk Recording - Production Evolution



 
The provincial average (above graph) hasn't increased at all between 2000 and 2009. Goats produced and still produce approximately 520 litres of milk per year (536 kg milk).
 
In terms of goats participating in milk recording, the average went from 617 litres per goat per year in 2000 to 715 litres in 2010. This represents a production increase of about 16%.  We also noticed that producers who use milk recording have an annual dairy production of about 38% higher than the herds that do not perform milk recordings.  Once again, a proof that, used strategically, milk recording is an essential tool to increase dairy production and obtain a better revenue arising from the sale of milk.
