Nubian goats are probably our favorites here at the Acres! The distinctively long ears, the bright curious personalities make them a joy to have around the farm. Nubian are known to have a large volume of milk with a high level of creamy delicious butterfat. They are relatively easy keepers and seem genuinely interested in their human counterparts. Nubian goats tend to have a natural resistance to parasites, tolerate temperature extremes well and usually make excellent mothers. They are wonderful as family pets and milking goats. Many also choose Nubian because the larger stature makes them a candidate as potential meat goats. We however do not go that route because we just can't get over these cuties! We tend to fall in love with all of them. One of our many foundation does ,Old Myrtle, has ridiculous amounts of rich, creamy, incredible tasting milk. She will be retired soon as her advanced age, and previously improper care has us wanting to allow her final years to be those of happy lounging. She did produce a final set of twins and her daughter Mercury is shaping up beautifully. We're excitedly waiting to see if this beauty is like her mama and so far she's not disappointed!
