Produce Milk & Fiber with Nigora Goats

First developed in Oregon in the 1990s, the Nigora goat is a multi-purpose breed that produces both fiber and milk and is the only fiber breed that is also a dairy animal. First generation Nigoras are a cross between a Nigerian Dwarf and an Angora, usually a Nigerian buck and an Angora doe. These first crosses typically display cashgora type fleece, inheriting the crimpy down genetics from the Nigerian and the lustrous mohair genetics from the Angora. Their milk production rivals purebred Nigerians as they tend to be larger than pure Nigerians and they can produce a variety of fleece types perfect for hand-spinners. You won't be starting a commercial dairy or fiber mill with Nigoras, but they are the perfect choice if your goal is to supply your family with milk and fiber.
