LaMancha does are at least 28 inches tall and weigh 130 pounds while bucks are at least 30 inches tall and weigh 160 pounds. Any color or color combination is acceptable.
In 2019, the average LaMancha doe on milk test produced an average of 3.7% butterfat. The Nigerian Dwarf (a miniature breed) and the Nubian are well known to be the highest butterfat producers; however, the LaMancha has earned the recognition of having both high milk and butterfat production! The LaMancha was third in protein and butterfat percentage after the Nigerian Dwarf and the Nubian (3.2%). (https://adga.org/knowledgebase/breed-averages/)
The hair is short, fine and glossy and the bridge of the nose is straight. The distinctive feature of the LaMancha is very short ears. To be registered, bucks may have ears no longer than one inch with little or no cartilage. Does may have ears up to two inches in length.
The LaMancha breed was developed in the United States and is known for its calm nature. It produces well in a variety of climates and conditions. If you’re curious about how this American-developed breed came into existance, check out this article:
