Nigerian Dwarf Goats
Overseeing Our Herd Management
Since 1997, here at CornerStone Farm, we have been breeding a small select herd of Nigerian Dwarf Goats. We chose to stay small, to give each animal the best care that we are capable of providing, and keeping focused on quality breeding for the management of our herd. This enables us to provide buyers with individual guidance for their purchasing needs. We know all of our animals; their pedigrees, temperaments, milk capacity and all health issues due to our daily hands-on management of each and every one on the farm.
Currently, our herd is registered solely with ADGA, with pedigrees showing past AGS registrations.
We are here to help you through the challenges of buying a Nigerian Dwarf goat, whether it is your first time, or if you have raised goats for some time and need new lineage in your breeding program.
I have been a milk test supervisor since 1997, we milk our herd on a daily basis during lactations, and can provide unofficial “barn” data on my does, upon request. The average Nigerian milks 2.5 pounds of milk per day over her full 10-month lactation.
NOTE: We have not been able to continue on any official milking program due to lack of milk test supervisors in our area, for verification tests.
Our lines have proven themselves in the show ring by earning their MCH titles and placing high in their classes (1st, 2nd and 3rd placements). Buyers have continued to prove our lines in the milk pail and show ring as Champions, Top 10 Milkers, 90s in LA scores and Superior genetics.
NOTE: With our many years of show experience and keeping abreast with quality show herds, we continue to selectively breed to create quality show animals. We are not able to continue to show at this time.
ADGA Linear Appraisals and AGS
Our lines have proven themselves in being assessed by ADGA through Linear Appraisal. Both our Doe and Buck lines have received Very Good and Excellent scores. We have also achieved Super Genetic notoriety in ADGA.
When in AGS, we participated in Herd Evaluation Scoring (HES) and received high scores in the 80s and 90s as well.
NOTE: Our schedules have not allowed us to continue with L.A. in ADGA.
