This study of the factors of variation in goat milk production in Fulani systems was carried out in the Niayes area of Dakar, Senegal. Reproduction, growth, mortality and milk production parameters were analysed. Age at first kidding was 16 months and kidding interval was 280 days. Average litter size was 1.36 kids and mortality quotient was high at 32.4%. Lactation length was 184 days while milk offtake per lactation was 31 kg. Goat production plays an important social and economic role in this area, providing substantial income and contributing to people's animal protein needs.
