About Thuringian GoatsAbout Thuringian Goats



Thuringian Goats are a variety of dairy German goat found in Thüringen, eastern Germany. They were developed from Toggenburg, Harzerziege, Rhönziege, and Thüringer Landziege goats around 1885. In the early 1900s Swiss Toggenburg, Harzerziege, and Rhönziege were introduced and Swiss Toggenburg was used again in 1988.

They are chocolate-brown with white markings on head and legs, a light face mask and white flash on the rump. They may be either polled or horned. Adult males weigh on average 55 kg and females 48 kg with an average wither height of 78 cm and 74 cm respectively. They are known for their adaptability to mountainous regions and their ability to walk long distances. The breed is nearly extinct.
