Danish Landrace Goat
There are many recognized breeds of domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus). Goat breeds (especially dairy goats) are some of the oldest defined animal breeds for which breed standards and production records have been kept. Selective breeding of goats generally focuses on improving production of fiber, meat, dairy products, or goatskin. Breeds are generally classified based on their primary use, though there are several 69 breeds which are considered dual- or multi-purpose goats, so there is some crossover between lists.
Famous quotes containing the word goat:
“If we didnt live venturously, plucking the wild goat by the beard, and trembling over precipices, we should never be depressed, Ive no doubt; but already should be faded, fatalistic and aged.”
—Virginia Woolf (18821941)
