Govind Kannan, an associate professor of animal science at FVSU.
FVSU is the first animal research lab in the United States to successfully use the techniques in goats.
who are doing a lot of research with goat meat," Kannan says, adding that the majority of this research is being done at historically Black colleges and universities like FVSU.
The challenge is to successfully transfer the FVSU techniques to large meat processing plants to boost the popularity of goat meat among American consumers, he says.
Kannan is director of the FVSU's Georgia Small Ruminant Research and Extension Center.
After extensive research this year, FVSU discovered a little-known health benefit: They found that goat meat has lower amounts of saturated fatty acids and higher amounts of unsaturated acids than lamb.
