The Somali goat is a goat breed from Somalia, Djibouti and northeast Kenya used primarily for the production of meat. The animals have short ears and hair, usually white but sometimes with spots or patches. Both males and females have horns, although females are often polled. The goats are drought tolerant and, when milked, can each yield one to three kilograms of milk daily, even when access to water is limited.
