The Savanna goat was developed in South Africa by the Chillers family through selective breeding of a variety of indigenous female goats and a good robust white male. As a result of natural selection under unfavorable environmental conditions such as drought, heat and cold only the fittest and best adapted goat survived. Selection in this herd was mainly aimed at breeding a heat, drought and parasite resistant, functionally efficient, meat-producing goat that exhibits excellent growth rates, muscling and carcass traits. Savanna goats have relatively low nutritional requirements making them able to survive and reproduce where other breeds of goats cannot exist. Savanna goats utilize poor quality pasture, thorn bushes and shrubs which are unpalatable to other goats and sheep. Savanna goats also thrive on planted pastures or under intensive management.
