Our Nigerian Dwarf Goats

The Nigerian Dwarf is a miniature goat from West Africa.  This breed of goat has been domesticated as a dairy goat.

  • Goats are browsers, eating tips of woody shrubs and trees. They often improve a pasture by removing blackberry, weedy undergrowth and ivy (even poison ivy and poison oak) that other livestock won't eat.

  • A doe can produce up to two quarts per day of milk that is higher in butterfat (6 to 10 percent) and protein than milk from most dairy goat breeds.

  • Nigerian Dwarf goats are raised for milk production but also as pets.  They are gregarious, friendly and hardy and can thrive in almost any climate.  Their gentle, calm and playful nature makes them good companion pets for children and disabled and elderly people.

  • Their small size means they do not require as much space or feed as larger dairy goat breeds.

  • Color is one factor that makes these goats popular:  black, gold, chocolate, Dalmatian-spotted, pint-patterned and other combinations are possible.
