Nigerian Dwarf

Nigerian Dwarf goats have been developed as miniature dairy goats in North America. The mature buck is a maximum of 23 inches high at the withers; does can be no taller than 22 inches. Ears are erect, the facial profile is straight, and all colours and combinations are allowed, although the pygmy “agouti” pattern is seriously faulted.

The breed is mainly kept as pets, although some owners milk the does for the two litres or so that a productive doe can put out daily.
