About Danish Landrace GoatsAbout Danish Landrace Goats



The ancestors of today’s DanishrnLandrace Goats have been in Denmark since 3400 BC, however, this sturdy breedrnhas seen a lot of cross breeding which has left the number of true DanishrnLandrace Goats rather limited. 

rnrnAt the beginning of the 20thrncentury, many were crossed with goats from the German Harz region and Saanen. Afterrnworld war II many Danish Landrace Goats were used as recipients for embryorntransfer of Angora or Boer goats or for crossbreeding with Boer goats for meatrnproduction.

rnrnToday most Danish breeders keeprnsmall non-commercial herds for home consumption of milk, cheese and meat or forrnhobby purpose, with the exception of a few commercial milk producers.
rnrnThe Danish Landrace is a mediumrnto large milking goat with an average annual milk production of 800 liters. Theyrnshort to long haired and they develop a thick hair coat during winter, whichrnprotects them well against cold weather. Males weigh around 80 kg and weightrnaround females 58 kg. Most are horned but some are polled. They come in manyrncolors such as brown, black, white, and blue-grey.
