The MiniNubian is a cross between a Nigerian Dwarf and a Nubian. The goal in breeding MiniNubians is to produce a mid-size
dairy goat with good conformation, high milk production, and the pendulous ears and roman nose of the Nubian.
The first generation of MiniNubians are usually created by breeding a Nigerian Dwarf buck to a Nubian doe. When two first
generations are bred, their kids are second generation. When two second generations are bred, their kids are third generation
and so on. Many first and second generation MiniNubians have airplane ears.
The MiniNubians are smaller than the Nubian but larger than the Nigerian Dwarf. The bucks are around 22-30 inches at the
withers. The does range in height from 20-28 inches. Our does average around 24-25". Their smaller size makes them a
lot easier to handle than their larger relatives, so hoof trimming, clipping, showing and milking become much easier. They
are just the right size for young, elderly or handicapped persons.
The MiniNubian makes the perfect home milker as they give 1 quart (2 lbs) to 1 1/4 gallons (10 lbs) of rich milk daily.
The average milk per day for a mature MiniNubian doe is about 4-6 pounds. The MiniNubian also has a wonderful personality.
They are very friendly, love attention and are very good with children. MiniNubians can be any color or combination of colors.
