Breeds of Livestock - Laoshan Goats


loa.jpgThis goat found in the Shandong Province of China.  The breed was developed from Sannens of another type, first introduced to Loushan by German preachers early in 1904, and used for crossing with local does from 1919. Several later importaions were also made.

Laoshan milk goats have been developed from upgrading and selection during the past 70 years, and they are now similar to purebred Saanen in both body and conformation and milk production.
