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:
“But he answered his father, Listen! For all these years I have been working like a slave for you, and I have never disobeyed your command; yet you have never given me even a young goat so that I might celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours came back, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fatted calf for him!”
—Bible: New Testament, Luke 15:29,30.
