    My name is LW. I have a Nigerian Dwarf goat farm in NC with about 30 adults. Farm name is Shoafplantation. Currently I am most interested in discussing polled to polled breeding with other members. I have a post already up titled Breeding polled to polled. Please comment in it.
    I have 1 homozygous polled ND buck and I am searching for another. If someone has for sale a polled ND buckling from both polled parents, I would love to talk with you about him.

    Welcome to the forum!

    No input here on the polled discussion, although a local university runs a partially polled Boer herd and they do breed polled to polled. I was surprised to learn this when I went to a FAMACHA class there.

    Welcome to TGS!

    I also have Nigerian Dwarf goats and I'm in Virginia. I have some polled does but no bucks yet.

    I have polled sheep and it is odd that there is such a phobia about breeding polled to polled in goats. And frustrating because I have been looking for a buck like that too!

    Would love to hear about your findings!

    Keep up the good work!

    Yeah, I rad about he polled to polled study that was done in the 60s. They had a lot of hermies born but they concluded it was because of the lack of horns. So many other factors were present that could have cause or contributed, but all blame was put on being polled.
    I have gotten 60+ polled kids off of my homozygous polled male, and as of yet, not a glitch. Im continuing my breeding program in efforts to have a entire polled herd of Nigerian Dwarfs. Im also using heterozygous polled males to increase my Doe stock. Still looking for that second homozygous polled male that I need.
