The objective of the study was to evaluate the influence of lactation stage on milk composition of Attappady Black and Malabari goats. Newly kidded thirty does of Attappady Black and ten Malabari goats were selected for this study. The does were hand milked daily at 8 am prior to feeding and yield measured for each animal at weekly interval. The milk samples of each animal was collected in experimental period and analysed for total solids, fat, crude protein, lactose and ash. Results showed that fat, total solids, lactose and ash were not influenced by breeds. However, protein content was differed significantly (P<0.01) between the small ruminant breeds. Total solids, fat, protein and lactose concentrations were higher in milk of Attappady Black than in Malabari goats.
