BREED OF THE MONTH
As the name suggests, the coat on these goats ranges from pale blonde to a deep bronze. Golden Guernseys are generally smaller than most milking breeds, but they produce milk with a high butterfat content, which makes great cheese. Their ancestors came from wild herds on the Channel Islands and the breed was revived by Miss Miriam Milbourne, who started keeping and breeding the goats in the 1930s. She even hid a group of them during the German occupation of Guernsey during World War II.
