    Hey, so I have a yearling ND doe (see my avatar for my favorite pic of her) who we want to breed soon. She is technically just barely breeding weight, but I was hoping to get her a bit before I let her breed. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of forage for them, and I thought that might be one...

    I’m so excited to share this. In case some of you dont know, my first ND doe was a purchase I should’ve done more research on. We got a doe who at the time was a first freshener, didnt do any digging on her lineage. The more I learnt, the more disappointed I was. She barely gave anything during...
  3. Goat Frenzy
    So the past while I’ve been thinking a lot about my current herd and where I want to take it. My family and I finally registered our little farm officially, which gave me a kick in the butt to actually get things moving. My first thought was that I have too many pets. We had two does that I...

    Hey goat family! I recently bought a beautiful Nigerian Dwarf buck today. He's AGS registered, I have his sealed pedigree certificate, and I have the signed bill of sale transfer slip from the previous owner to transfer him into my name. I want to transfer registries and go the ADGA route...

    Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from central Illinois and have been raising Nigerian dwarf goats since 2002. We use their milk to make all of our yogurt and cheese. You can learn more about our herd on our website, Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. Deborah Niemann-Boehle

    Hello! I am brand new to goat owning! I have a pregnant Nigerian Dwarf doe who is due end of February-End of march. I do not have an exact date for her. She currently has free choice minerals and alfalfa hay in a feeder bag. I have goat pellets available and cracked corn but have not been...

    Hello. I'm looking at buying this Nigerian dwarf in milk. Attached are pics of her udder and teats. I was hoping a more experienced eye might have an opinion on them. I have pics of her dam and granddams as well if that helps. She is 3, giving about 5.5 cups per day. Owner asking $650...

    Going to be picking up two of my does from a friends house that were being bred. Was hoping they would only be there for a couple days but with their heat cycles it ended up being a little over 2 weeks. When I dropped them off the conditions weren’t as good as I was expecting. Not bad but just...

    I had one of my young ND does disbudded on Thursday. She was spunky and growing before the disbudding. For the last three days, she has been lying around, separate from her two sisters. Today she is very limp and sleepy. I have given her nurti drench and a pain pill once a day. Today I fed...

    So I’m not too worried just yet as it just started yesterday, but I decided to make a post about it anyways just in case. My one year old ND doe has been squatting every 10-15 mins to pee, but nothing comes out. That, or just a dribble. Any ideas on what it could be? Shes acting normal, eating...
  13. Goat Conformation
    Now I’ll admit, I’ve never used clippers on a goat before. I’ve never even thought of shaving a goat until I saw how cute they looked- and here we are. Luna got her first shave today, and while it’s not perfect, I think she looks adorable. Thought I’d share! I am once again confused about...
  14. Goat Management
    I may or may not be picking up a milking doe today, and my other goats are between 8-13weeks. Is it okay to put them together, or should I be worried about the doe picking on the littler ones? We have no other adults, so I’m worried we have no other choice. Badly thought out on my part. The doe...

    Im having trouble finding a definitive answer, how often do mini lamanchas go into heat? Do the follow the Nigerian dwarf side or the lamancha? It APPEARS the would follow the lamancha side??

    Hello! We are new to goat farming and have a small herd of ND goats. We purchased a new goat this Saturday who is in milk and had kids in November (she's 3). She was still with her kids when we purchased her so we didn't get much milk Saturday. She produced quite a bit Sunday, approx a quart...

    What do you feed your does on the milk stand? I’m putting together a mix for my does and have thought of putting Alfalfa pellets, black oil sunflower seeds and grain tossed in molasses. I’m worried this mix would have too much phosphorus, and not enough calcium. Any thoughts on how to balance...
  19. Goat Management
    I'm beyond excited that we've made the decision to add goats to our little "farm" in the spring or summer. I've been contemplating them for a LONG time and now that my children are potty-trained, almost school-age, and able (and willing) to come with me while I do animal chores, it seems like as...
  20. Beginners Goat Raising
    I’ll be getting myself a 10 month old Nigerian Dwarf doe for March and am curious about when to start breeding. I’ve been told 8-9 months, 12 months, over a year, etc. And would like some opinions.
