The Bagot goat is the oldest registered goat in the UK. King Richard II gave the herd to John Bagot on his return from the crusades in the 13th century.They are a rare breed, with only eighty registered breeding nannies left in Britain. Owing to their poor commercial qualities they are seldom kept. We have long kept Bagot goats, having lost our herd during the foot and mouth outbreak we are once again working hard to help preserve the breed. The species is assisted by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust to help maintain the national herd.
