Miniature LaMancha Goat


Other name(s):
 Mini LaMancha; MiniMancha

Scientific name: Capra aegagrus hircus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: The LaMancha Goat was developed in Oregon by crossing Swiss and Nubian bucks with Californian short-eared goats from a Spanish lineage. The Miniature LaMancha was created by combining a Nigerian Dwarf Goat and a LaMancha. The Mini LaMancha is still an experimental breed but is registered with the International Dairy Goat Registry (IDGR) and the Miniature Dairy Goat Association (MDGA). Miniature breeds like the Miniature LaMancha are not yet accepted by the American Dairy Goat Association.
