Goats must be bred to produce milk. Some babies are retained by the farm (primarily doelings) to grow our dairy herd; but many babies are sold. Because Nigerian Dwarf goats are considered dual purpose, meat and dairy, many look to purchase males for the table(as meat). We love our boys and spend a lot of time with them making them great pets ; they are very loving and well mannered. We would NEVER consider allowing them to become someone's dinner...could you? Your support, of any amount, helps us provide sanctuary for these little guys that have not been purchased by loving families, remaining on the farm living a long happy life with the herd.
