Origin and diffusion

Origin: France - La Réunion

The primary population of this breed is characterized by a great diversity of phenotypes. His three centuries of adaptation have allowed him to acquire resistance characteristics.
Chèvre Péï has been replaced by the Boer goat, with higher milk production, but a safeguard program has been put in place to maintain and promote this goat which is part of the cultural heritage of Reunion. Funded by ODEADOM, this program is based on official national recognition of the breed (target achieved in 2011), the establishment of a breed standard and a population census.
In 2014, 1000 fertile females were registered (INRA data).
