Found world-wide, but originated in West Africa
Nigerian Dwarf goats are an American breed of dwarf goat that derives from the West African Pygmy. This breed is known for their very even tempers, gentle playful personalities, and small stature. Female Nigerian Dwarfs can produce up to 4 pounds of milk a day bread year-round, so they are ideal dairy goats for families and 4H groups. Their milk has a higher butterfat content than milk from a full-sized dairy goat according to the American Dairy Goat Association. They come in a variety of colors including black, gold, cream, and patterns and can grow to be up to 75 lbs.
