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 from Spain called the Murciana.

Beginning in the 1930's, Mrs. Eula Fay Frey of Oregon began a breeding program using short-eared Spanish Murciana does, and Nubian and French Alpine Goat bucks. Lamanchas first gained recognition as a distinct breed in the early 1950s, and the breed was registered formally on January 27, 1958 as "Lamancha or American Lamancha" goats.
