Angora Goats

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angora_goat 

Angora goats evolved on the Anatalian Plains of Turkey near the city we now know as Ankara and from which the name "Angora" derives. The term "mohair" apparently derives from Arabic (mukhayyar). Angora goats were highly regarded and jealously protected from exportation until the sixteenth century when the Angora goat was introduced into Spain and France. However, the goats were not introduced to the United States until 1849.

The Boer goat was developed in South Africa in the early 1900s for meat production. Their name is derived from the Dutch word "Boer" meaning farmer. They were selected for meat rather than milk production; due to selective breeding and improvement, the Boer goat has a fast growth rate and excellent carcass qualities, making it one of the most popular breeds of meat goat in the world. Boer goats have a high resistance to disease and adapt well to hot, dry semi-deserts

Boer goats commonly have white bodies and distinctive brown heads. Like the Nubian goat, they possess long, pendulous ears. They are noted for being docile, fast growing, and having high fertility rates. Does are reported to have superior mothering skills as compared to other goats.

Cashmere Goats


"Pashmina goats" by Redtigerxyz - Own work. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pashmina_goats.jpg#/media/File:Pashmina_goats.jpg 

Cashmere goats are a very hearty dual purpose, horned goat.  They produce cashmere fiber which is combed from the animal each spring as it naturally sheds out of the animal.  This fiber is known as the fiber of kings and is turned into very luxurious and expensive products.  As a meat goat, the ideal cashmere has a similar build and meatiness as Boer goat and these qualities can be emphasized over time.  Cashmere goats, even the bucks, are alert, intelligent, easily trained and of a trusting nature which makes them very easy to manage.

Kiko Goats

Kiko Goat  Kiko goat  Kiko goat

The Kiko Goat originated from New Zealand by crossing feral goats with dairy goats in the 1980s. Kiko is actually the Maori word for flesh or meat. They were developed for fast growth, survivability with little input from the producer and their hardiness. The Kiko is large framed, generally white (although many Kikos carry genes for colour and coloured Kikos are capable of registration) with a coat that ranges from slick in summer to flowing hair when run in mountain country in winter.

Pygmy Goats


Pygmy Goats

Pygmy goats are hearty animals that are easy to handle due to their small size.  They come in a range of colours and coat patterns.  They are used primarily as pets and companions for lone horses, but they are really a full sized meaty goat on short legs, so they can also be marketed for meat.  They do however have a definite attitude and are not aware that size matters.
