About White Shorthaired GoatsAbout White Shorthaired Goats



White Shorthaired goats are dairy goats from the Czech Republic. They are the result of selective breeding of native Czech landrace goats crossed with Swiss Saanen goats in the early 1900s. they were recognized as a breed in 1954-55 and is now found throughout the Czech Republic.


White Shorthaired goats are similar to the Saanen in appearance; they are white and shorthaired. Some strains maintain the characteristic Saanen's black spots on the skin of the nose, eyelids, and udder. They have upright ears and most are hornless (75-80%), with the pollness fixed through systematic selection.


Their appearance is typical for milk goats, strong but fine boned, deep and long in body, long legged. Average females weight about 120-150 pounds, height in withers 72-80 cm, heart girth 85-105 cm, males about 150-190 pounds, 75-85cm in withers and 95-115 cm in heart girth. Early mature, first bearing in 12-15 month of age.


There are now over 35,000 White Shorthaired goats.
