Alpine goats are the most common type of goat used for milk, cheese, and other dairy products.
With sweet faces and strong bodies, alpine goats are a common sight on farms and ranches throughout the Western world. The origin of these goats is generally accepted to be the mountainous French countryside, although the species has been domesticated for centuries. You can count on your goat to be sweet, friendly, and long-lived – all of which are important qualities for a domestic farm animal.
All Alpine breeds originated in the European Alps, hence their name. Like other European goats, they are descended from a Middle Eastern ancestor known as the bezoar goat. Over time, shepherds selected them for improved milk production. The American Alpine dates to 1922, when a group of goat aficionados imported a herd of twenty-one French Alpines, which were subsequently crossed with other varieties to produce a slightly larger animal.
