    Hey all,

    I just saw a Togenberg doe. Shes pregnant, maybe 3 months. Very small. First pregnancy. Her parents are not around too see. She might have been bred by a Boer or Jamunapari.

    Are Togenbergs proven Dairy Goats like Saanens? Or is there a chance I wont get milk from her. How tall does a 8 month old Togenberg doe have to be?

    Thanks in advance

    here in the USA Toggs are large dairy goats who do produce quite a bit of milk. Not sure how they compare to your Toggs though

    Toggs. are a proven dairy goat in many parts of the world- though each animal is different. She should be good height compared to other goats her age- the same height and shouldn't be smaller. But if she got bred that young she may always be on the smaller size.

    Well, she is only 8 months. She will continue to grow.
