The objective of this study was to evaluate the production, composition and sensory characteristics of dairy goat milk fed diets containing extruded food-based castor meal (EFCM). The average values of milk urea nitrogen (MUN) were affected (P <0.05), and the concentration of the butyric acid content in fatty acids (C4: 0) and caprylic (C8: 0) were affected (P <0.05) when compared to the control treatment. For the atherogenicity index (IA) showed a significant effect (P <0.05), demonstrating best results in 33% replacement level. The variables characteristic odor, strange odor, characteristic taste, strange taste, rancid flavor, sweet taste and overall acceptability were affected (P<0.05), with averages of 3.24, 2.88, 5.20, 3, 86, 3.49, 4.10 and 4.36% respectively. The (EFCM) can replace soybean meal up to 33% in the diet of lactating goats without causing damage to production, physical and chemical composition, fatty acid profile of milk and their sensory qualities, then being an alternative power source for lactating goats.
