Nigerian Dwarf and
African Pygmy Goats
Nigerian Dwarf goats are best known for their small frame, beautiful variety of colors and markings and their frequent blue eyes. They are the smallest of the milking goats breeds. Their adult height is about 17-19 inches for does and 19-21 inches for bucks. The does usually top out at 40-60 lbs while the bucks typically average 55-75 lbs.
African Pygmy goats are recognized as having a shorter, squatty more compact body build. They are the smallest of the meat goat breeds. These does average 55-75 lbs and16-22 inches, and the bucks usually have a weight range of 60-85 lbs and a height of 16-23 inches.
Both breeds are known for having an outgoing, affectionate, friendly, sociable and playful nature. Our first goal with our small herd breeding program is to continue to promote these same desirable personality traits. We consider it top priority to give our goats ample attention and affection. It is important for the health of our does and their babies to primarily dam raise our kids; however, we also prefer to introduce minimal bottle supplementation in order to encourage and nurture trust and love between the kids and their humans. Our miniature goats, although raised primarily as companion pets, can also be used as very productive family milkers. Doe kids will be available for $350, and little bucks will be $200.
