During 2012-2016 we conducted a study of the population structure of the bezoar goat within the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. The average annual number of bezoar goat was 1174 individuals. The age structure of the population was represented by 533 (37%) young and adult individuals, 283 (19.6%) fertile females, by 229 (15.8%) calves, and by 129 young animals (8.9%). Females made up 45%, males - 24%, in other age groups the gender was not determined. The ratio of the number of calves (195 individuals) and females (283 individuals) or the birth index was 0.81. The average population density of bezoar goat was 14 individuals per 1000 ha.
