Forty four feral males, 30 Saanen males and 20 Saanen females, all yearling or younger, were slaughtered and their chemical and dissectible composition determined. The ferals, reared on hill country, were leaner than the Saanens reared on better grazing. Females tended to be fatter than males in most measures of fatness. All three groups were low in fat, both total chemical fat, and dissected fat in the leg. The fat content of lean tissue was extremely low.
