Goose Production for the Table


Goose is still seen as largely a seasonal bird. It has become popular once more for festive family meals as it is larger than most turkeys (they do however have more bone structure).

Geese vary tremendously in size from 10 - 13 kg for the heavy types such as the Embden and Toulouse, to 5 - 6 kg for the Chinese or Roman goose. The males are at the top end of the weight range, the females smaller.
