I love goats ! But make mine a MINI !
Why breed for miniature dairy goats ?
Well, for a number of reasons. Smaller goats are easier to handle, which can make for better pets - especially for children and seniors. They also will save you some money !
A mini goat eats less than a full size dairy goat.
Therefore saving you money in feed.
Also the nigerian dwarf influence may help to expand the dairy goat breeding season past the months of fall/winter.
