The Kaghani is a meat type that is found in the valley of Hazara district
and surrounding areas in NWF Province, Pakistan. They are a large size
with a white, gray, brown or black body coat. Their meat conformation is
considered to be medium to good. Kaghani goats yield a good crop of long
hair (per head/year 2 kg) with an under coat of cashmere wool used for
expensive pashmina fabrics.
