The authors completed temper research among Alpine (n=62), Sanental (n=54) and Selected Hungarian breeds originated from a Győr-Moson-Sopron County's goat stock-farm. The most important aim of the sample survey was the determination of the relation between the temper and age of the three examined goat breeds.The temper estimation was fulfilled by scales-test assistance (the estimation of the animal's behavior in a 1-5 point range standing on a scales during 30 seconds). The average age of the

The average temper of the examined species was 2,77±0,97. The smallest difference compared to the average was found in case of the Alpine breed (2,72±0,86), while the received temper result was 2,28±0,90 by the Sanental and 3,24±0,94 by the Selected Hungarian breeds.Statistically proved negative relation was found during the age and temper classes compared research (P<0,01; r=-0,379), which means, that as the age goes further so decreases the animal's temper.
