Alpine goats - Dairy but unruly goats

By

Posted Jun 19, 2016

Alpine goat has a high milk production, which is excellent for the cheese and very healthy as well. They are very burly and persistent, so you can breed these goats in almost all environmental conditions. The average weight for female goats is 60-70 kg, and 80-100 kg for billy goats, which was fascinating to me. The domestic species of goats are considerably smaller in my country.

These goats are very resistant to the diseases, and as mentioned above, they can adapt to different conditions with ease. Since this breed has a high milk production and high fertility rate, it is ideal for the commercial breeding. My goats give birth very early, starting from 9 months of age,and they bring forth two goatlings in most cases.

The only bad thing about these goats is their restless temperament and disobedience. Take that in mind!

As for the breeding facilities, they must not be moist and windy. I will give you another suggestion. Take care to make a tall fence because this goat can easily jump over a low fence. Also, you should breed at least one couple of these goats because they are very sociable and don't like to be lonely.
