Kalahari Red Goats For Sale
Breed: Kalahari Red goats are a distinct breed, despite the belief that they are simply solid red Boer goats or Savanna goats. The long, deep body has a medium-to-large frame and strong legs. The short, glossy hair bears little undercoat during winter. The pigmented skin is loose and supple. Dark round horns curve backwards behind broad pendulous ears, soft brown eyes, and a slightly roman nose. Multiple, divided, or extra non-functional teats may occur.
Coloring: The solid body color shades from light to dark red-brown. As their ancestors were patterned white and brown, white patches sometimes recur in offspring. kalahari goats for sale
Origin: This commercial breed was developed from native South African and Namibian landraces and improved red Boer goats. As a commercial breed, it is not threatened. However, the indigenous goats that went into developing the Boer, Savanna, and Kalahari Red are endangered, mainly due to crossbreeding with commercial breeds. These landraces are recognized as important genetic resources needing protection due to their thriftiness, hardiness, and adaptation to the various African climates.
