The 50 year vision of the Savannah Goat
Create a goat through natural selection off the farm in the harsh veld (savanna) of South Africa capable of efficiently producing low cost red meat from a browsing environment.
The growth of a rare breed and its future development is totally dependent on an informed, honest and motivated breeder network. N.A.S.A. is as concerned about the relationships between breeders as it is about the goats they breed. Since it is impossible to regulate integrity, it is imperative that all Savannah enthusiasts know the breed and know the breeders.
Preserves authentic South Africa stock maintaining that easy care performance traits and strong mothering ability are paramount to ongoing breeding selection and breed success. Watch the documentary and interviews of breed founder and developers Lubbe Cilliers and Dr. Quentin Campbell taken in South Africa 1999. The making of the breed "Thoughts on Savanna Goats" is a four part short series, see History of the Savannah Goat
