Goats are the most important and beneficial animal for common rural people of India for their nutritious milk, delicious meat and leather. Goats are having huge potency to help the poor population of India as well as of rest of the world. Thus, at least for India, goats are regarded as “Poor Man’s Cow”. Despite of being such an economically beneficial animal, the health management of goats was mostly neglected by veterinarians for a long period of time. Further, goats are the ruminant short day breeders and seasonality in terms of reproduction and immunity is prevalent in this animal. Being the ruminant free grazing animals they are susceptible to different season bound diseases which are mainly caused by different viruses, bacteria and protozoan. Physiologically goats are very much similar to that of human particularly for gestation type and to some extent the duration. Similarly, in terms of immunity research the goats are emerging as more humanitarian animal model than those of rats, mice, zebra fishes and flies. But, till date reports are limited considering the immune regulation and reproduction in this animal model. Thus, goats can be an alternative and high throughput animal model not only for the benefit of common mass but also to act as an alternative model representing the human.
