The International Dairy Goat Registry first registered these adorable little goats in 1981. They are the only true miniature goat breed of the dairy type. They have features comparable to other dairy goat breeds, but are much smaller in size. The Nigerian dwarf is commonly used for its milk production as well as a companionship. They have easy going and playful personalities. Their gentle and calm nature makes them a great companion for children and disabled and elderly people. You can find the curious goats exploring and climbing on tree stumps, rocks, and other objects.
