About American Cashmere GoatsAbout American Cashmere Goats



In the 1970s Wild goats from Australia were crossed with Spanish meat goats living in the American southwest and after years of selective breeding, American Cashmere Goats were developed.

American cashmere goats are still considered rare, but the North America herd is increasing in size.

American Cashmere goats start growing a new coat of cashmere fiber each summer. The cashmere fiber starts to loosen and shed in early spring. The natural color of cashmere fiber is usually light to chocolate brown, cream, white, or gray.

They are remarkably intelligent, friendly, and easy going. They get along well with other animals, children, and each other. They mix well with cattle and horses, which prefer different plants. Goat feed is only needed when females are pregnant or nursing and while the kids are young.

Although American Cashmere Goats prefer to eat weeds and brush, they also like pasture plants and hay. Like other goats, they digest their food in stages and don't eat much for their size.
