About Altai Mountain GoatsAbout Altai Mountain Goats



The Altai Mountain goats, or Gornoaltaiiskaya, are wool-producingrngoats from the Altai mountains in Gorno-Altai Autonomous Region of the formerrnSoviet Union.

rnrnTheir diet consists mainly of grasses and other plant life andrnthey graze almost constantly during the day.

rnrnUnlike some other breeds of wool producing goats, the Altairnmountain goats are very consistent on their wool production amounts from onerngoat to the next. There is usually only a ten percent difference in yield at arnmaximum. rnrnThey are quite uniform in both color and size and mature slowly,rnnot reaching full adult status for five years or more.

rnrnWool ofrnAltai Mountain goats has high technical qualities and is a valuable commodityrnfor light industry. Thernbreaking length of the Altai mountain goat's wool is around nine centimeters- thisrnis true for both males and females. The guard hairs are black and the true woolrnis a dark gray color.
