In the presently paper is exposed a methodology of generation of good layout in milk goats farms of the Spanish county of Almera. For it is used it the methodology S.L.P.propossed by Muther (1968) and a computer program of layout generation based on genetic algorithms and in technical of cut slicing tree (Santamarina et al., 1994a; Santamarina et al., 1994b; Santamarina et al., 1995). This methodology has been applied two farms type of 120 and 240 milk goats, being obtained layouts that minimize the cost of the flow of materials through the farm, that which bears an economic saving and of work for the farmer, and some necessities of handling of the smallest livestock, for what rebounds socially in a smaller time dedicated by the farmer to the handling of the livestock.
