Savanna goats originate from South Africa. Relatively new in the U.S., they possess superior hardiness, parasite resistance/tolerance, good fertility, temperament, and mothering instincts. The breed has a medium to large carcass with lean and tender meat.
Savannas resemble Boers in build, but aren't nearly as Roman-nosed. Like Boers, they were developed using African goats, but under far more hostile environmental conditions, resulting in a tougher, hardier, more disease and parasite-resistant goat. Their sleek white coats are accented by black skin, horns, nose, sexual apparatus, and hooves.
They are a vigorous breed, exceptionally productive. They tolerate intense heat and sunshine as well as remarkably cold and rainy conditions,.
