LaMancha Goat


Other name(s):
 American Lamancha;
La Mancha Goat

Scientific name: Capra aegagrus hircus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: The LaMancha Goat was developed in the United States from a short eared breed of dairy and meat goat originally from the La Mancha plateau region of Spain called the "La Mancha goat". According to the American LaMancha Club, "As the Spanish missionaries were colonizing California, they brought with them a short-eared breed of goat suitable for either milk or meat production. If not true LaMancha's these animals were very close to them."
