Alpine is a breed of domestic goat known for its very good milking ability. The breed originated in the French Alps. Mature does weigh around 57 kg or 125 lbs, and are about 0.8 m or 30 inches tall at the shoulder.
Alpine goats are heavy milkers; the milk can be made into butter, cheese, soap, ice cream or any other dairy product that cow's milk can produce. They are most often used for commercial milking. These are hardy, adaptable animals that thrive in any climate while maintaining good health and excellent production. The face is straight. A roman nose, Toggenburg color and markings, or all-white is discriminated against.
