The Nigerian Dwarf is a dairy goat breed. Much smaller than the traditional dairy
breeds, Nigerian Dwarf goats stand between 17 - 20 inches tall at the withers.
Characterized by a long body, level topline, erect ears, and flat to slightly dished
muzzle, the Nigerian Dwarf is a well proportioned dairy goat in miniature. Milk
production averages 1-2 quarts a day, with a butterfat content between 6 - 10%.
Their lower milk average makes them ideal for a small family, and their high
butterfat content makes them an excellent choice for homemade cheese, yogurt
and ice cream.
Unlike some goat breeds, there is no specific color associated with the Nigerian
Dwarf goat. They come in a kaleidoscope of colors, and all colors are accepted by
the breed registries. They have a gentle, friendly personality that combined with
their smaller size make them perfect for just about anyone to handle!
