Erzgebirge Goats, also referred to as Passeirer Gebirgsziege or Erzgebirgsziege, hail from Saxony, Germany, and are recognized for their distinct characteristics. These goats are typically polled and feature a reddish-brown coat adorned with striking black stripes on their face, back, and legs.

While Erzgebirge Goats were historically valued for their milk production, the breed is currently facing critical endangerment. Efforts to preserve and safeguard this unique breed have become imperative to prevent its decline and ensure its continued existence within the agricultural landscape.
