These hardy goats are easy-keepers and pay their own way and
they are adept at containing and depleting brush in heavy
wooded or grassy areas. Both Nigerian dwarfs and pygmy goats
require good fencing as they are very skilled escape artists and
can find and eat the entire garden in minutes. They are great
companions to other livestock, both large and small and make
wonderful pets for children and adults alike in rural or urban areas
where they are permitted.
Want milk? A freshened Nigerian dwarf goat doe can provide just
the right amount of milk for your family’s needs. Averaging two to
three quarts per day of high butterfat and protein-rich milk for up
to ten months is typical. Cheese, ice cream and soap making are
means more yield than standard dairy goat breeds. In addition,
higher butterfat adds more moisturizing and healing properties to
soap made from goat’s milk. Does your horse, llama, sheep or
human friend need a buddy? A small Nigerian dwarf or pygmy
goat fits the bill!
Nigerian dwarf goats or
pygmy goats do not need
much space and are
acceptable by city laws in
many urban areas if you
have a large-sized city lot.
The city or country dweller
finds both of these breeds
a perfect fit for their lifestyle.
