Being still pretty new to goatkeeping, I am trying to decide which direction to go breed-wise for my herd. I have a registered Mini Nubian doe and her two registerable doelings, and they are adorable and friendly and I love them. I also have a mostly Alpine grade doe we got as a bottle baby (she is sweet sometimes but can also be a real bully) and her doeling who is half Mini Nubian. The Alpine mix gives WAY more milk, even though she's about the same size as the Mini Nubian doe. But we like the taste of the Mini's milk a little better. Basically, I'm thinking of going Mini Nubian for our herd and working on developing May's line. But what is considered a good amount of milk for a Mini Nubian? May only gives about a pint after twelve hours, at five years old. That doesn't seem super good. The Alpine mix is giving a quart after twelve hours as a FF, which I'm told is pretty decent for a grade doe. We could sell the Minis and go Alpine and presumably get more milk. I doubt all Alpines are bullies, right? I definitely want to work towards more gentle goats that won't pick on my human kids or the other goats. For gentle I've heard LaManchas are excellent, but I don't really care for the LaMancha look personally. I'm getting off-topic. Sorry. My real question is, is it possible to get a good milk supply from a couple of Mini Nubians or should I go with a different breed for that?
