Thuringian goat

Mammal

Thuringian goat (Capra hircus)

Precocious mothers

This robust goat breed produces around 700-800 kg of milk per year and is very well suited for a combined use for both milk and meat. Furthermore, the animals are very fertile and particularly the females mature early. Thuringian goats are good mothers; multiple births are common.
Bred for the harsh climate of the Thuringian forest, the goat exhibits a high robusticity and is often used for landscape conservation.
