Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

If a herd has more than one breed of goat, odds are good that they also have some experimental goats, which are crosses of other purebred standard-sized goats. Bucks are determined creatures, and unplanned breedings happen in most herds.

In this episode, Erika McKenzie, head cheesemaker and dairy herd manager at Pennyroyal Farm, talks about her breeding strategies and why she loves being unencumbered by specific breed standards, as well as the dairy’s business model and their cheese subscription program.
