Danish Landrace goat

The Danish Landrace goat (Danish: Dansk Landraceged) is a landrace breed from Denmark.

Goats have been in Denmark since 3400 BC.[1] The Danish Landrace goat is descended from ancient goats of Denmark, with a more recent addition of bloodlines from the Harz region of Germany and the Saanen goat.[2] It is used primarily for the production of milk, but is also raised for meat and as a pet.[3]

The breed's studbook, Foreningen for Danske Landracegeder, was opened in 1982.[1] Danish Landrace goats are mid to large-sized goats, with males weighing around 80 kg and females 58 kg.[1] Common colors include brown and black coats like wild goats, as well as white, blue-grey, and other hues.[3][4]
