Oberhasli

The Oberhasli is a Swiss dairy goat. This breed, which is common in its native country of Switzerland but relatively rare in North America, is known for its gentle disposition. Its coat color is reddish brown with black markings, although some does are solid black. A mature doe weighs at least 120 pounds, and a mature buck weighs at least 150 pounds.  Oberhaslis are excellent producers, just like the rest of their European cousins. Two gallons per day is considered normal for many breeders, and three gallons isn’t uncommon. Butterfat is close to the Toggenburg and the Alpine as they stick close to 2.5% to 3.5%.  An Oberhasli doe may be expected to produce 1,600 pounds of milk in a year with an average milkfat content of 3.6 percent.  Oberhaslis are generally known as sweet, mellow goats who are easy to milk.
