Goat Plants Planned in U.S., Belize
USAgNet - 04/10/2006

Blue Diamond Ventures Inc., Houston, Tex., plans to build goat-processing facilities in Oklahoma and in the Central American nation of Belize, reporting it will aggressively market the world's most eaten meat and its value-added products of milk and cheese throughout the U.S., Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.

"This market has been growing at an annual rate of 30 percent since 1990," said Blue Diamond Ventures chief executive officer and president John Moaning. "Our business model calls for an aggressive approach to secure those awaiting markets, and we have spent significant time building a solid infrastructure."

The U.S. currently has a net deficit of goat meat, milk, and cheese, with Australia and New Zealand as primary suppliers of the goat meat sold commercially in the U.S. There are more than 460 million goats worldwide presently producing more than 4.5 million tons of milk and 1.2 million tons of meat, mohair, cashmere, and leather.

Blue Diamond will utilize 3,000 acres in Belize and 1,200 acres in Oklahoma for a goat ranch, research center, and processing facility. Local farmers in Belize and Oklahoma, under a cooperative agreement with Blue Diamond Ventures, will raise the goats for processing at the company's facilities.
