(Terran mammal - Capra aegagrus hircus)
The domestic goat or simply goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) is a subspecies of C. aegagrus domesticated from the wild goat of Southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the animal family Bovidae and the subfamily Caprinae, meaning it is closely related to the sheep. There are over 300 distinct breeds of goat. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species of animal and have been used for milk, meat, fur, and skins across much of the world. Milk from goats is often turned into goat cheese.
Female goats are referred to as does or nannies, intact males are called bucks or billies and juvenile goats of both sexes are called kids. Castrated males are called wethers. While the words hircine and caprine both refer to anything having a goat-like quality, hircine is used most often to emphasize the distinct smell of domestic goats.
Goats are widespread across Union Space and in particular human colonized worlds. Goats were among the first domestic animals that followed man to the stars.
The remarkable robust animal, able to adapt to a wide range of climates and environments had been a favorable staple to early colonists.
Today Goats and Goat related products are widely traded.
