About Anglo-Nubian GoatsAbout Anglo-Nubian Goats



Anglo-Nubianrngoats were developed in England by crossing British goats with African andrnIndian bucks.

rnrnAnglornNubians are all-purpose goats (meat, milk and hide production). They are not arnheavy milk producer but they have a high average butter fat content (betweenrnfour and five percent). The Anglo Nubian breeding season is much longer thanrnthat of the Swiss breeds so it is possible to produce milk year round.

rnrnrnrnTheyrnare best suited for milk production in hot conditions and are used inrngrading-up programs in many tropical countries to increase milk and meatrnproduction of local breeds. rnrn

rnrnAnglo-Nubianrngoats are a relatively large, proud, and graceful dairy goat. They are namedrnfor Nubia, in northeastern Africa. The original goats imported from Africa,rnArabia, and India were long-legged, hardy goats that had some characteristicsrndesired by goat breeders in England. English breeders crossed these importedrnbucks on the common short-haired does of England prior to 1895 to develop thernAnglo-Nubian goat. In the United States the breed is usually spoken of as thernNubian. rnrn

rnrnAnglo-Nubiansrnare an aristocratic appearing goat and have very long, pendulous ears that hangrnclose to their heads. Anglo-Nubians carries a decidedly Roman nose and arernalways short-haired. rnrn

rnrnAnyrnsolid or parti-colored coat is permitted in the Anglo-Nubian, but black, red orrntan are the most common colors, any of which may be carried on combination withrnwhite. Usually there is shorter hair on the Anglo-Nubian males, particularlyrnalong the back and on the thigh, than is commonly found on the Swiss breeds.

rnrnrnrnThernudder of the Anglo-Nubian is capacious but is sometimes more pendulous thanrnthat of the Swiss breeds. A mature doe should stand at least 30 inches at thernwithers and weigh 135 pounds or over, while the males should stand at least 35rninches at the withers and weigh at least 175 pounds. The Anglo-Nubian usuallyrngives less milk than the Swiss breeds, but produces a milk of higher butterfatrncontent.
