Goat breeds: Capra Blanca Celtiberica

Goat breeds: Capra Blanca Celtiberica

Origin and diffusion

Origin: Spain.

The breed is a clear expression of the Savana type. During the second half of the Neolithic, the Bezoar type would be gradually replaced by the Savana type, as evidenced by the remains found in southern Europe, since in the Bronze Age it would expand throughout the continent and leave some Bezoar-type nuclei in the Alps and Scandinavia. Due to the high degree of insulation imposed by the Pyrenees to the north and the Strait to the south, in Spain the Savana type has been preserved in great purity.
Breeders of this breed are found in different regions of Spain such as Andalusia, Aragon; Castilla La Mancha, Cuenca and Guadalajara, Murcia and Alicante.
