Golden Guernsey Goats in the UK

The Golden Guernsey is a small goat with a moderate milk yield which although less than other breeds, is comparable when the lower food intake is considered.

It is adaptable to free range or stall feeding and can be kept by those without much land, needing only a house and a fenced yard. With an affectionate and docile nature, these points all emphasize its suitability as a house goat.
