she is a Nubian/pygmy.
Will do.If you want her for milk - check her mom's udder and size of teats. Very small teats are VERY difficult to milk. Because she is a cross, you should breed her with a smaller buck when the time comes. Also ask if the herd has been tested for CAE/Johnes.
I tried the link to your photo, it said "the image was trashed by owner. Image is in the trash."These are pics of her teats.
So having her for milk goat would be not the best idea.
Nope but i'll ask.Just out of curiosity, do you know if her parents were full Nubian and full pygmy, because if they were registered you could register her to the kinder breeder association and get a higher price for her kids if you plan on selling.
To me she doesn't look super pureblooded, but I've just started doing this.
Ok I just thought because the sire was a nubian and the dam was a pygmy it would be fine.You can breed her to any breed that would be the same size or smaller than she is. SOME families of the standards throw small kids as a rule but eventually grow full size. I've used that strategy, but until you really know what you are doing, it really is best to stick with one of the smaller breeds. That means not Alpines, which are quite large.
Any of the smaller breeds would do. Pygmy would make the offspring more meaty, Nigerian Dwarves would make them more dairy, the mini breeds (including other kinders) would all work. Some Fainters are medium sized, that should work. San Clementes, etc.
What do you have around you?
Don't choose just because of size. You still have all the other considerations, too. Always keep in mind wanting to improve your herd by using the best bucks you can.
