We have two breeds of dairy goats on the farm; Sassy and even sassier! We're kidding. pun intended.
The Nigerian dwarf is a smaller type of goat that produces a ton of milk for its size and the milk is very high in butterfat. That makes it a perfect milk for soap making and certain types of cheese. we find this breed to be very playful with just the right amount of attitude.
the 'Lagerian' goats are a mix of the Nigerian Dwarf and La Mancha goats. La Mancha goats are distinct for their lack of ears. they tend to have a more loving and mellow disposition. Often times, the cross of these breeds results in the most adorable 'elf' ears like Stitch and Stella have and they are a great mix of both personality types.
