About Mini-Nubian GoatsAbout Mini-Nubian Goats

Mini-Nubian Goats are a mid-sized goat and are a crossrnbetween Nigerian and Nubian goats.  Theyrnare known for being a graceful, elegant goat that stand between 23-31 inchesrntall and come in any color or pattern of short, fine, glossy hair. They arernknow for their ease of milking; producing a high quantity and quality of milkrnwhose butterfat yield is similar to that of the standard Nubian. rnrn 

rnrnBreeding programs put emphasis on a structurally correctrnanimal with well-attached udder that milks with ease. As this breed was originallyrndesigned for small farms and homesteaders who milk by hand and needed a smallerrnanimal for handling and feeding purposes. rnrn 

rnrnThe Mini-Nubians have a unique nose that is never dished,rnbut straight to strongly convex (with the strongly convex being morerndesirable). And distinctive, long, wide, and pendulous ears that when heldrnalong the face reach the end of the nose. rnThey should be held close to the head where they attach and then widenrnand flare out and forward to a rounded tip, making the classic "bell"rnshaped ear standard Nubians are so well known for. rnrn 

rnrnNo part of the Mini-Nubian should be coarse, but insteadrndairy and refined (with masculinity for bucks); with soft supple skin andrnudders, strong correct legs, wide flat boning throughout, sharp shoulderrnblending into a long and graceful neck, and ample width and depth for kiddingrnand milking purposes. rnrn 

rnrnMaximum height: Does 29 inches Bucks 31 inches.
