Nigerian Dwarfs - My Perfect Dairy Goat

Everyone has his or her favorite breed of goat. Mine happen to be Nigerian Dwarfs. They don't eat as much as the larger dairy breeds, but they still produce a good quantity of milk. Nigerian dwarf goat milk has high butterfat - almost twice that of a large dairy breed. They can also live in a smaller barn and area. They have such friendly personalities, and are so much easier to handle than the larger breeds. Plus they come in a variety of colors and can have blue eyes.

Nigerian dwarfs are always the favorite at fairs. Someone once told me at a fair, "Out of all the animals we saw here today, we loved your little goats the best!"

So, why not add a couple of Nigerian Dwarfs to your herd? You may just fall in love with them.
