Goat Breeds: Tauernschecken (skewbald or piebald goat breed of the Tauern Mountain Range): This breed is characterised by good milk performance and fast-growing kids, about two of which are born each year; has been bred in the area around Großglockner mountain (especially in the Rauris Valley) since the beginning of the 19th century. Breeding records have been kept since 1967. In 1994 there were about 20 breeders with some 100 registered goats. The Tauernschecken were selectively bred for their skewbald coat, so that they could be easily found both in summer and after snowfall.
