Increasing of goats population, in the last ten years, conduct to the growth of mdern capriculture, based on massive imports of performant dairy goats from Alpine and Saanen breeds. Expectations towards a qualitative and quantitative production led to pretty important imports for specialized breeds like the Alpine, from communitary states, during the last 6 years. This study presents the results of some research started since the last semester of the previous year on some goat livestock from Alpina breed, livestock which was brought to the Garbovi farm, Ialomita county. The livestock presents the following morpho-productive traits, such as: live weight 59.81±0.29 kg, back height 69.35±0.29 cm, croup height 70.36±0.18 cm, oblique body length 75.9±0.20 cm, chest width 19.69±0.19 cm, anterior croup width 20.52±0.2 9cm, thoracical perimeter 91.31±0.38 cm, cane perimeter 9.12±0.04 cm, resulting a dolicomorphe body structure. The medium milk production in is of 1.90±0.26 l/head/day during the stalling months November-February, with average of November 61.07±1.7 l, December 78.56±2.07 l, January 92.34±2.93 l, and February 52.38±1.38 l, only during the first 120 days, and the chemical composition of the main constituent parts: Dry matter nonfat 9.3%, protein 3.53%, fat 4.02%, a significant quantitative and qualitative gain of goat milk especially when the local breeds don’t yield them.The females prolificity is of 146%, being a lot below the breed average over 130% in comparison with the average proven by the breed but also in comparison with the unameliorated breeds, this aspect being is a basical element in selection, next to the milk quantitative aspect. The gain recorded for goat youth over the 90 days is comprised between ADG1 0-30 days is 124.15 g/day, ADG2 30-60 days 209.78 g/day, ADG3 60-90 days 127.32 g/day of males and 106 g/day, 191 g/day, 115 g/day of females, during the whole period which was much over the average of Carpathian breed, especially milk ones, which have typical dolicomorphe structure but with a great productive and somatometrichal variability.
