Welcome to the Spanish Goat Association. We are proud to represent the most efficient and hardy goat in the United States of America.

The Spanish goats in the United States are tried-and-true, which is why they're so popular in the south and southwest—this breed can handle almost any hot climate and rugged terrain. Strong, fertile, and parasite-resistant, this is the kind of goat that big ranchers dream about.

Spanish goats are a pure breed, but are also known as "brush goats," "scrub goats," and "woods goats." Many have been crossbred, and the variety of strains make identification a little tricky. But there are fullbloods/purebreds out there. We'd like to keep it that way.

The Spanish Goat Association is trying to preserve the true Spanish goat gene pool that has made Spanish goats so great. Our goal of conserving this heritage breed can only be achieved with the participation of dedicated breeders, and we're fortunate that our breeders are kind, supportive, and easy-going.

Please contact us if you have Spanish goats and you're not on our list of breeders—we're trying to keep track of breed numbers and locations. If you wish to purchase Spanish goats, check out our Breeder list and Bloodlines pages (see menu on left side of this page).

Davis buck, primarily from Baylis bloodline The Spanish Goat Association seeks to preserve the Spanish goat gene pool by increasing the availability of Spanish goats and by educating goat breeders of the benefits of raising Spanish goats. We also provide a forum for contact with Spanish goat breeders.

This Association was started in August 2007 in response to the work of Justin Pitts and the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. We are enjoying the involvement of Spanish goat breeders in a team effort to conserve this excellent breed.

The best way to contact us is to call Leslie at 540–687–8871, or e-mail us at spanishbreeders@gmail.com.
