About Lariana Goats
|Photo Luigi Brambilla|
Lariana Goats, or the Goat of
Livo, comes from the western side of Como Lake, from
Livo valley, Italy. They belong to the European alpine Group of Goats. They are
found in Italy across in western Lario and nearby areas.
Their coat is
variously colored: plain–black, brown, red or yellow – or pied. Horns: present
or absent, ibex-like or ‘markar’, that is, backwards and wide apart. Although
their milk production is quite good, they are mainly reared for kids.
