The present work assumed as main objective: knowing the production and the marketing of goat meat in a silvopastoral region of the Mixteca Poblana in Mexico. Fifteen Familiar Production Units (FPU) Goat in the study, two spaces known as markets (tianguis) and 12 sale points were used to commercialize goat meat; a structured poll was applied with 75 questions under four productive indicators. The first one concentrated goat FPU general data, the second one concentrated the goat identification and register, the third one concentrated in the goat meat market and commercialization information, and the forth one included production costs, prices/kg meat and saucer, and preference percentages goat meat consumed in the Mixteca region; through the sounding probe in situ method. Finally, it was applied descriptive statistics; using SPSS 10,0 package for Windows. In the results, it was found that 60% of the producers are located in a regime of small property, with 110 populations from 30 to goat/unit of silvopastoral production, 13% of the FPU sell their goats at local and regional market in $600.00, 60% sells in $800.00, 7% in $850.00 and 20% sell in $900.00. The production cost/animal was $ 121. 05, and its net benefit of $ 679.57. The preference of the 100% was for white barbecue, to a cost of $ 200.00/kg. In conclusion, the production and marketing of goat meat in silvopastoral conditions are an option to produce on low costs and to commercialize it like organic product as a future source, because feed costs are reduced with the potential forage tree-shrub type consumed by goats throughout the year.
