Genetic diversity is the baseline for survivability and improvement of livestock in a wide array of environments. Variations among Red Sokoto, Sahel and WAD goats was determined using 5 ml of blood collected by jugular venipuncture from 150 randomly selected goats (50 goats per breed). The samples...
