About Nigora GoatsAbout Nigora Goats



rnrnNigora Goats are medium-sized (19inrnto 29in tall) milk and fiber goats. Nigora Goats are generally calm, amiable, andrnlaid back. Due to their good nature and size Nigora Goats are sold as pets, andrnwell as millk and fiber animals.

rnrnNigora Goats originated in thernUnited States in the early 1990s. Early Nigoras contained a mixture of NigerianrnDwarf, white and colored Angora goat bloodlines, as well as some small gradernfiber goat breeding; today's Nigoras may also contain the bloodlines ofrnregistered Swiss type Mini Dairy breeds.

rnrnThe conformation, character andrnstyle of the modern Nigora should be that of a healthy, proportionate animal:rnIt should exhibit a rectangular build, refinement, bone structure, substancernand angularity typical of a well formed miniature dairy goat, while alsornproducing three distinct types of fleece. The fleece varies between mohairrnfiber and cashmere wool in character, with cashgora fiber being a blend ofrncharacteristics between the first two types.

rnrnNigora Goats are produced, andrnpromoted, as particularly suited for the micro-eco farming niche, Urban goatrnkeeping, small homesteading, personal family use, and as pets. Their friendlyrndispositions, smaller size, and general ease of care also makes the Nigorarnsuitable for children and prospective senior or special needs goat owners.rnrn
