About Kinder GoatsAbout Kinder Goats



rnrnThe Kinder Goat breed began inrnthe late summer of 1985, when Zederkamm Farm's Nubian buck died, leaving twornNubian does without a mate. Since they also kept pygmy goats and did not wantrnto take the does to another farm to be bred, they were bred with their pygmyrnbuck. Left to his own devices, the buck accomplished the two successfulrnbreedings, making use of log sections and sloping land to reach the correctrnheight. On 30 June and 4 July 1986, the first three Kinder does were born. Itrnwas another year before the first Kinder buck was born.


rnrnIt is easily possible for arnKinder doe weighing about 115 pounds to produce five kids who in 14 months canrnweigh 80 pounds each and dress out at 50 pounds thereby producing 250 pounds ofrnmeat each year.


rnrnUnlike many breeds, Kinderrngoats are seasonal breeders, meaning they can be bred throughout the year; thisrntrait is inherited from their pygmy ancestors. Also, they frequently have multiple births - There have been 7rnreported births of sextuplets!


rnrnKinder Goat milk has highrnbutterfat content, sometimes having higher than 7 percent butterfat; it alsornhas higher amounts of milk solids, yielding larger amounts of cheese.


rnrnIn spite of their smaller size,rnKinder Goats are generally more muscular than a full-size dairy goat, often yieldingrndressing percentages over 60%.rnrn
