         With the completion of preliminary research, its results will be used to drive support for conducting research activities under the goat farming plan for 2020-2022. Researchers from the PSU Faculty of Natural Resources, and Faculty of Veterinary Science,  along with Songkhla Rajabhat University‚Äôs Faculty of Agricultural Technology, combine their knowledge and expertise to solve goat-related issues, including goat-rearing management, feeding systems, improvement and breeding, and goat disease management. This coordinated work is expected to stimulate the economy by generating interest in goat farming occupations, fueled by high market demand, good prices, and the increased nutritional value derived from meat and dairy products. The project will accelerate the process of learning how to produce quality goat feed, and how to add value to products to increase distribution both domestically and internationally.

       The PSU Faculty of Natural Resources, on behalf of the Small Ruminant Research and Development Center, has developed the hybrid goat breed "Saup PSU 1", by mating native goats in the South with Anglo-Nubian goats characterized by adaptability to the southern climate. The faculty has distributed the knowledge and donated goats to interested farmers, and sold them to farmers as unique economic livestock.
