Our breeding goals

We love our Mini Nubians so much that it is important that we strive for the best animals we can breed. We aim first, to breed with a focus on milk production, structurally correct udders, and teat/orifice size. We want our animals to be exceptional milkers, giving their new owners (and ourselves), ease of milking, big production, long and level lactation, as well as delicious tasting milk.

Our second focus is on breed conformation. We want our animals to be an exact replica of standard Nubians, but at a smaller size.  Making sure we have those gorgeous convex roman noses, the long bell-shaped ears, smooth and graceful long necks as well as long strong bodies with excellent dairy character and toplines. While we know moon spots and blue eyes are all the rage lately, our focus is on the udder and the body conformation first, the moon spots, blue eyes, and being polled are just the icing on the cake.

Below you will find our breeding plans for the next year.  If you are interested in a kid, send us a note! We will put kids up for sale after weaning which is between 12-16 weeks from kidding. Due to just beginning our breeding program, we prefer to thoroughly assess our kids before making a decision on who to keep/sell, we don’t want anyone to put a deposit in hopes of a specific animal only for us not to be able to provide that animal due to the doe not providing, or that we choose to keep more than we expected. Any kids for sale will be put up after 12 weeks.

**We reserve the right to retain any animal we feel is necessary to our breeding program. Breedings are subject to change. 

Our kids will run in the $275-$425 price range. Prices will be placed on animals when they are put on the sale page.
