The LaMancha is a type of dairy goat noted for its apparent lack of or much reduced external ears. The LaMancha goat is medium in size and is also noted for a generally calm, quiet, and gentle temperament.
Feeding goats can be as diverse as their purposes. Goats – and for that matter, sheep – have many different purposes: Meat, milk, pets, therapy, commercial production, and valuable homestead livestock.
Selective breeding brings about obvious changes in size, conformation, and yield. Additional physical and behavioral changes accompany selection for any specific trait, and these are sometimes quite unexpected.
