The article doesn't say, but looks like Toggenburg and French Alpine.

I'd take the guess that it is some Alpine .... British, French, etc. The white markings are their, but a Toggenburg would have a more greyish-beige colour. The ones in the photo look a bit to dark.

This Toggenburg goat looks a bit fat, the ones that I know are usually far leaner.

You are right, Togs are light brown. That doe looks prego. Another good thing about goats, they usually have two or three kids.

I can try to email this dairy and see what they milk. Not bad for two old ladies with a 12 acre farm- Not 1 but 2 World Class Awards

Here are some pictures of their goats. Click on Home in upper left hand corner to get in. http://www.webring.org/l/rd?ring=livestock;id=51;url=http%3A%2F%2Fthreering farm%2Ecom%2Fold%2520pages%2F Click on photo gallery. You are right, they are French Alpine.

Check out the cheese these ladies make. They are artists!
