Alpines in the United States

The Alpine is a medium to large sized dairy goat with upright ears and a medium to short hair coat. This breed can be seen in an assortment of colors and color combinations. They are hardy adaptable animals that can thrive in a variety of climates and maintain good health and strong production. In America, we have two subsets of Alpines; the French Alpine and the 
American Alpine.

Today's Alpines are a versatile animal.  Alpine does make excellent milkers for both home and commercial dairies. Alpines produce a high volume of milk. They have the ability to milk through, meaning that they can produce over a period of one to three years between freshenings. This produces valuable year round milk and reduces breeding costs. Alpine milk has a high cheese yield because of good butterfat and protein content.  They are known for being exceptionally hardy, curious, and friendly. The beauty and intrigue of Alpine colors can make them appealing to many.

In 2019, ADGA registered a total of 6,153 Alpines. Alpines continue be a breed of choice for many producers, from backyard hobbyists, to show enthusiasts, to commercial dairymen.
