Goats are a particularly efficient mean of producing recombinant proteins since they produce considerable amounts of milk, and incur lower investment and maintenance costs than cows. Thus, the aim of this review is to present the state-of-the-art for obtaining transgenic goats producing recombinant proteins for further utilization in the pharmaceutical industry. Additionally, the approaches to directed site-specific integration of transgene as well as the economic interest for this activity will be discussed.
