If I got a few mini's "whatever's" like Nubian, Alpines, oberhasli's (oberians), Lamancha's when you breed them, do you use a Nigerian dwarf buck for future generations, or do you have to have a buck that is already a mini "whatever" to get the generations up?

Breeding miniature dairy goats

It depends on your breeding objectives and what you see in the offspring produced by the breeding of the standard breed to the ND. Because you are combining two separate breeds the offspring may not meet the breed standards in the first generation of crossing. Here's a link to a good article on all of this:

Okay, that makes sense. I couldn't find this article this morning while doing my research. Thank you:)
