About Danish Landrace GoatsAbout Danish Landrace Goats



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

At the beginning of the 20th century, many were crossed with goats from the German Harz region and Saanen. After world war II many Danish Landrace Goats were used as recipients for embryo transfer of Angora or Boer goats or for crossbreeding with Boer goats for meat production.

Today most Danish breeders keep small non-commercial herds for home consumption of milk, cheese and meat or for hobby purpose, with the exception of a few commercial milk producers.
The Danish Landrace is a medium to large milking goat with an average annual milk production of 800 liters. They short to long haired and they develop a thick hair coat during winter, which protects them well against cold weather. Males weigh around 80 kg and weight around females 58 kg. Most are horned but some are polled. They come in many colors such as brown, black, white, and blue-grey.
