About Mini Oberhasli GoatsAbout Mini Oberhasli Goats



Mini Oberhasli, also called an Oberian, and formally called Miniature Oberhasli, Goats are dairy goats that were created by breeding a Nigerian Dwarf with an Oberhasli Goat. Mini-Oberhasli Goats produce from 4 to 10 pounds of milk per day.


They are registered by the privately owned Miniature Dairy Goat Association (MDGA) and The Miniature Goat Registry, which is a nonprofit corporation. The minimum height for does is 21 inches and 23 inches for bucks. Maximum height standards for purebreds are 28 inches for does and 30 inches for bucks. They are most often red bay with black markings, although they also may be pure black and only rarely red (not accepted for registration). The Mini-Oberhasli should be a mid-sized version of the Oberhasli dairy goat; however, at this time, one trait that came exclusively from their Nigerian ancestors is still allowed: blue eyes.


Mini Oberhaslis are considered purebred after six generations of breeding Mini-Oberhasli to Mini-Oberhasli. Red bay and black are accepted colors at this time, with small amounts of white allowed. The final purebred Oberian should still be approximately 50% Nigerian and 50% Oberhasli.


Mini Oberhaslis are considered by some to be the ideal urban dairy goat because they are smaller than standard dairy goats, give more milk than Nigerian Dwarves, and have gentle, friendly, and quiet personalities.
