Abstract Subdivision of TF B into two variants, B1 (faster) and B2 (slower) in Australian goat breeds was accomplished by high voltage, thin layer polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis at pH 7.9. The genes controlling the caprine transferrins were shown to be autosomal codominant alleles, TFA, TFB1, TFB2 and TFC and in the various breeds of goats, the alleles were in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. TFA was the most common allele in the Australian and Texan Angora, Cashmere and Dairy breeds with gene frequencies ranging from 0.652 to 0.977. TFB1 and TFB2 occurred in all four breeds while TFC was only observed in very low frequencies in Australian Angora and Cashmere breeds.
