wHY nIGERIAN dwarf goats?
Okay, there are several options out there when it comes to dairy goats. We were very selective and knew exactly what we were looking for when we decided on Nigerian Dwarfs. Trust me, we would have preferred being able to use Nubians or La Manchas because Nigerians are small and to be frank they have tiny little teats. The issue we had with the other breeds was that their butterfat content was lower. If you are looking for good cream with high butterfat Nigis are the way to go. They average around 6 - 10%. To put that into perspective, you are looking at about the same butterfat percentage in their milk as you would get buying 1/2 and 1/2 at the store. So the Nigis fit our overall model of providing the highest quality with the best possible ingredients for your skin. Who doesn't think that bathing in a tub full of 1/2 and 1/2 is good for your skin?? Just like our other ingredients and our processes, Nigis aren't the easiest but they are the best in our opinion. One plus as far as the milking goes is that they have great personalities which makes the cramping hands not quite as bad I guess...
