The objective of the study was to evaluate the impact of lactation stage on milk minerals of calcium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium content of Attappady Black goats and Malabari goats under Indian conditions. Thirty newly kidded does of Attappady Black and ten newly kidded does of Malabari goats were selected for this study. The overall milk sodium content differed significantly (P<0.05) between the Attappady black (274.96 ± 4.70) and Malabari goats (291.94 ± 6.36). No significant was observed in milk phosphorus and potassium content in between the breeds. But the milk calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium content was differed significantly in various stages of lactation in Attappady Black and Malabari goats. The milk calcium content was maximum (P<0.01) in Malabari goats (551.77 ± 10.93 ppm) compare than Attappady Black goats (445.20 ± 11.53 ppm). However phosphorus and potassium level in milk were higher in Attappady Black than the Malabari goats.
