Nigerian Dwarf Goats
We have a small herd of Nigerians on the farm. We show them at local shows with the goal to improve show quality. Not only do we aim for show goats but also to breed healthy goats that need limited supplementing. Nigerians were once considering a threatened heritage breed until 2013 when they were taken off of the Livestock Conservancy Priority List. Heritage breeds are known for their hardiness, parasite resistance, and fertility. With these traits in mind we aim to create a show quality animals with these traits present. We are proud members of the American Goat Society and the American Dairy Goat Association. Thanks to a grant from Farm Credit East we are now able to attempt AI (artificial insemination). We are excited to have retained our first AI doeling!
