Miniature Nubian Goat


Other name(s):
 Mini-Nubian; MiniNubian;
Miniature Nubian Dairy Goat

Scientific name: Capra aegagrus hircus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: The Miniature Nubian Goat is a developing breed which originated as a cross between a Nubian Goat doe and a Nigerian Dwarf Goat buck. This initial crossbreeding is considered the first generation (F1), and subsequent breedings typically are done between Miniature Nubians. By the 6th generation (F6), the kids are eligible for purebred status if they meet breed standards.

The Miniature Nubian retains the desirable characteristics of both foundation goat breeds, making it a popular breed, not just for its good-tasting milk and quality meat, but also as a pet and farm animal companion. It is still an experimental breed but is registered with the International Dairy Goat Registry (IDGR) and the Miniature Dairy Goat Association (MDGA).

It has been wonderful to meet so many like minded people through goats. "Goat people" are always some of the nicest! Because of the goats, and the fact that we live in an area with many large predators (coyote...
