łac. Capra hircus, Linnaeus, 1758
Sandomierz goat is one of the three Polish goat breeds, next to Carpathian and Kazimierz goats. This breed emerged at the beginning of Hasidism in Poland, at the turn of the 19th and 20th century in the river-basin of Vistula and San. Its main grazing area was the Sandomierz Forest. Unfortunately, it came close to complete extinction. Since 2016 works are underway at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin to restore this breed. One of the unquestioned advantages of the Sandomierz goat is the taste of its milk, which lacks the characteristic smell.
