Sirohi goat, India - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

The Sirohi goat is a compact, medium-sized breed native to the Sirohi district of Rajasthan located in western India. Sirohi goats have a predominantly brown coat, with light or dark brown patches. On occasion, the coat may be completely white in color. Most sirohi goats are wattled and have medium-sized flat leaf-like drooping ears. Sirohi goats are dual-purpose animals, being reared for both milk and meat. The animals are popular for their weight gain and lactation even under poor quality rearing conditions. The animals are resistant to major diseases and are easily adaptable to different climatic conditions. Though the main breeding tracts of Sirohi goats are situated in the Aravalli hills of Rajasthan, they are also widely distributed in several other Indian states.
