A popular and expensive breed of goat, this week’s featured breed the Kamori goat is a dairy breed, native to Pakistan. (Picture - the goat guide)

Native to Pakistan, the Sindh province, the Kamori is a very popular dairy breed in the region.

They are generally found in Larkana, Dadu and Nawabshah in the province. Their popularity is due both to their beauty and efficiency in milk production. The breed is nowadays very expensive and very rare indeed.

They are widely known for their beautiful and unique appearance. They have a very distinctive long body, with a long neck and ears.
They have a very distinctive coat, colour-wise, with it usually coloured dark brown, with small coffee-stain patches covering their body.

The breed is medium to large in size, with does weighing up to 50kgs at maturity and bucks up to 60kgs.

Uses:
As mentioned, the breed is mainly used for dairying purposes. This is due in part to the excellent udder and teat development of the breed.

On average a mature lactating doe can produce up to 1.5litres of milk. Though primarily used for dairy, the breed is also used in meat production too, due to their larger, longer body size.

The breed has become increasingly rare in recent years, which has led to a dramatic increase in the cost of a goat. Hybrids and crossbreed can be obtained quite cheaply, though purebreds are highly sought after due to their unique colouring.

A beautiful breed, which has more use than simply looking pretty, is the Kamori goat of Pakistan.
