Drežnica goat is Slovenian autochthonous breed of goat, which is most typical for area around Drežnica. Breed was officially recognized in year 2000.
This breed has horns in most cases. Most prominent color of their fur is black, but they exist in different colors as well, like combinations of black and grey, black and brown, and spotted. Grown female goat weighs about 40 to 60 kg, while males usually weigh about 60 to 80 kg. In Slovenia there is no accurate information about fertility and milk production of those goats, because control over that only started in year 2002. In past those were raised primary for their meat.
By nature, this goat breed is quite independent and it is hard to keep it in the herd. The largest herds are on mountain pasture called Krasji vrh above Drežnica, on mountain pastures of Božca above Sprenica, Krmica above Bovec and Mangart.
Due to the restriction of goat farming Drežnica goat almost disappeared. This restriction lasted from late 18th century till the fall of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. That is why Drežnica goat became involved in a programme of preservation of Slovenian autochthonous breeds in year 1999. It is also on the list of endangered animals of this area.
