Nigerian Dwarf Goats
Originally from west Africa, the Nigerian Dwarf is miniature dairy goat breed. Their balanced bodies resemble larger dairy goat breeds with straight noses and upright ears. Females (called Does) are typically 17" to 20" tall, while males (called Bucks) stand about 19" to 21" high. The breed has a weight range of about 60 - 80 lbs.
Nigerian Dwarf goats are very friendly and gentle, even the bucks are easy to handle. We chose the breed because of their manageable size and sweet personalities. And they're awesome milkers! They can produce up to three pounds per day with 6-10% butterfat.
