AUSTRALIAN MINIATURE GOATS

Capra aegagrus hircus

The Australian miniature goat was developed by pairing smaller stature animals, both purebred and cross breeds, with small Australian rangeland goats. Careful selection by registered breeders has produced a healthy, smaller goat that breeds true to type. There are a wide range of colours available. There are several ear types including pixie, munchkin and elf. 

Height is measured at the wither of the goat. Acceptable heights of fully grown goats vary from 57-63.5cm for does and 62.5 - 65.5cm for bucks, depending on number of registered generations and association.  

 

We  encourage diversity and are members of both the AABMGS and MGBA registries for miniature goats in Australia.

AUSTRALIAN PYGMY GOATS​

Pygmy goats originated in West Africa and were imported into Europe and the USA. Their short stature was originally due to achondroplastic dwarfism  - leading to short legs, a plump body and a short head. 

The pygmy goat breed is being developed in Australia using imported semen and embryos from the USA. These genetics are being crossbred with select miniature goats to produce the Australian Pygmy Goat.  To ensure you are getting what you pay for, it is recommended that you purchase registered pygmy goats.  

     

We will have 25% pygmy wethers, bucks and some doe kids available in late October 2016

NIGERIAN DWARF DAIRY GOATS

The Nigerian Dwarf is a miniature dairy goat of West African origin. They were imported into the USA, where the breed was developed further to have a conformation similar to that of the larger dairy goat breeds. At great cost and time, these genetics  (semen and embryos) have recently been imported into Australia as live goat imports into Australia are not permitted for biosecurity reasons. To develop the breed in Australia, registered Australian Nigerian Dwarf  (ND) goats are being bred up through a grading system to a recognised full blood percentage. These crosses are being completedwith both miniature goats and high quality dairy goats, depending on the priority of the breeder. 

 

We will have 37.5% ND Bucks, wethers and some does available  for sale mid 2017.
