Özet

The aim of this study was to determine both the current economic situation and the major characteristics of Angora goat farms. For this study, 100 goat farms were surveyed in the Ankara province, specifically, the Polatli, Gudul, Ayas, Beypazari, and Nallihan district, to examine the role breeding plays in the rural economy. In addition to technical analyses of Angora goat production, some outstanding traits of Angora goats were determined. There were no significant differences among the Polatli, Nallihan, Ayas and Gudul provinces, except for the Beypazari province in terms of goat population (P < 0.05).
