Verata Goats are a medium-small
meat and dairy breed found in Vera, Caceres, Spain. They have twisted horns and
they are chestnut, black, or grey colored. They are very hard and fairly easy
to handle and they can adapt easily to different management systems.
Verata Goats are best adapted
to mountain pastures because they have strong, long legs, and they can also
survive on poor and scarce feed.
They are valued for their milk,
mainly for cheese production. Currently, there is approximately 17000 existing
Verata Goats inhabiting in Spain. Generally speaking, these goats are found in
herds of 100 to 150 goats.
