Green Days Farm is a Nigerian Dwarf Goat Breeder in California. Baby Goats For Sale in CA








Nigerian Dwarf Goats - the total package!

If you have ever wanted to have a dairy goat - these are wonderful little girls. They are fun pets as they are very smart and loving. Most Nigerians give about two quarts of milk a day. Does stands 22.5 inches tall and bucks no more 23.5 inches tall. Their milk is high in butterfat making their yogurt and cheeses delicious. Our doelings give us 4-6 cups a day. Nigerian Dwarfs are alot smaller and easier to handle than other breeds.

If you need a couple of good weed and brush eaters, these are the ones. Nigerians are a very hardy breed and do a lot of work on blackberries, poison oak, thistles, etc. They are outside all day, only need a little shelter for winter rains and at night. You need to have at least two goats, as they are herd animals and need to be with a buddy or they get extremely lonely, but you never can have too many dwarf goats! Pigs, horses or sheeps are great company for them too.

We breed for cuteness, friendliness and milk production. Our Nigerian dwarf goats come from excellent blood lines, including Rosasharn and Algedi farm, home of many show champions and milk production award winners. All our goats regestered in in ADGA (American Dairy Goat Association). Kids are going to new homes disbudded and dewormed.

Guide to raising Nigerian Dwarf goats

Goats are easy, all you need is just open the door of the barn in the morning, make automated waterers going .. and that's about it
For little bit more details please read further

HOUSING

For the housing you should provide a barn or shed. They like to sit and jump on shelves, at different levels. Goats sleeping place should be above the ground. They like to feel safe and dry. Our goat inherited a horse barn. Spacious, lots of air, the coolest place on property in 90+ degrees days.

FENCING

It is great if you have fance, but even if you dont they will grase in a certain radius and come back, just like chickens do. Be aware of predators though. "Farm Guard" wrapped fences, 4 ft tall will do the job. Welded wire - total waste of money.

FEEDING

First of all, pasture. Goats like brushes and bushes and even blackberries! They will eat all weeds and keep your property nice and clean. Goats like to browse under oaks, pine and cedar trees and eat all the goodness that falls from those giants. They will appreciate it if you bring them all fruit garden pruning waste, except plants like azaleas , camelias, lavenders, irises, peonies , oleander and such, anything that is marked as "deer resistant" might be harmful to your goats! In the end of the summer and winter time when there is not much for them on a pasture, you can feed them orchard grass, alfalfa or triple mix hay.

Pregnant and lactating goats ration should be different from your regular gaisers. Breeding goats are almost always busy. They are either pregnant or give us milk. They need to be fed really well all year around, lots of alfalfa, grains, minerals and veggies.

Males diet should be different. We feed our bucks separately. Alfalfa and grains is too rich food for them. Calcium can cause urinary stones (blockage). We feed them orchard grass, triple mix , some alfalfa but mostly pasture. We still give them our morning mix (goat pellets, grains, veggies) same mix as we do for females, but for boys it is reasonably small amount.

Mature non-breeding, animals may be maintained on a pasture and good quality hay alone

Goats will appreciate all your kitchen scraps, but they are not your "garbage disposal" !!!!! Those creatures are clean and noble as they can be! They would not eat anything that is molded, unfresh, stale or laying on a floor. We make our "Morning mix" from vegetable and fruit cuttings: onion ends, banana, potato, apple, beets peels, tomato ends, broccoli peelings, orange peels, garlic skins plus goat pellets and triple mix grains. We also like to add sunflower or flaxseed oil, just a little bit, especially in a winter time, to make our goats healthy and gloriously shiny!

MINERALS

Most importantly, minerals should be fresh. Small amount every day. If anything left at the end of the day, just through on the ground and next day give a little bit less, that is how you will figure out the right amount. Minerals for bucks are different. It contains Ammonium Chloride, which prevents urinary stones.

Goats need fresh water at all times. They also benefit from a salt block and baking soda.

HEALTH AND GROOMING

You should deworm your goats only as needed to prevent resistance to dewormers. We use only herbal deworming, please check it out: Molly's Herbals Worm Formula for ALL ANIMALS and I give them Diatomaceous Earth (DE) using 10 days on and 10 days off schedule. Hooves must be trimmed as needed: the bottom should be flat without edges curling under. Garden pruner will do the job, but not so great. We prefer to use Goat Hoof Trimmers. We brush our goats thoroly, especially on a spring time, till they are nice and shiny.

When you bring your new goats home, they might be shy and nervous. Do not chase! instead, give them fun tour on a pasture, they will follow you as a herd lider

This information is just for the start. We hope that you will learn some things from this page and develop your own way of raising goats that works best for you!
