2Chix Farm is home to the delightful Sans Gene herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats. Nigerian Dwarfs are amazing little goats! Their small size and gentle disposition make them easy to handle and keep. They give a surprising amount of milk for their size, 1-2 quarts per day for a mature doe, and are known for delicious, sweet tasting milk with very high butterfat (6-8%, sometimes more!) content.
We strive toward excellence in conformation, dairy type, milk production, longevity, and vigor in our breeding program. Our herd is small, so all of our goats receive lots of individual love and attention. We test for and have always been negative for CAE, and our foundation stock came from CAE-negative tested herds. We have also tested for CL and Johne's, with all test results negative. Keeping our goats happy and healthy is our first priority!
Our Nigerian Dwarf goats are registered with American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA). We enjoy showing and letting the girls "strut their stuff" in the show ring, and attend several shows each year. Our milking does have been on DHIR milk test since 2011. In 2013 and 2014 the herd participated in ADGA's linear appraisal, and will again in 2016.
