Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Hello! We are just getting started in goats. We have 3 boys who love goat milk and we want to purchase 2 goats to have as our family milk goats. I am a member of several Facebook groups and I found some goats I am interested in purchasing though one of the groups. I read about testing for CAE and Johne's disease, but when I asked the goat owners about these tests he said he had no idea how to get them tested. Are these tests really important to have before buying? He has a small family farm and said he purchased the goats from a local dairy and then decided he doesn't want Nigerians so that is why he is selling.

Biosecurity testing, in my opinion, should be extremely important to anyone bringing goats onto their property. The last thing you want, is to start out with a disease on your property. A vet can draw the blood and have it sent for testing, and some labs offer a discount package to test for CL as well. I’m going to post some articles for you as well :)

Thanks so much for the information! I will pass on these goats and try to find a herd that has been tested.
