Hi, I'm new here. We live in Northeast PA on 3 acres that are slowly evolving from suburban lawn to useful homestead. Along with my woodshop, garden, fruit trees, we have ducks, chickens, rabbits, a mini horse, and some goats. Now my dilema. We did not buy the goats from dairy goat stock. They were basically pets. We thought, well, a goat is a goat. They are nigerian dwarf/pigmy cross. My wife was happy because of the small size. We bought 2 does and a buck. 3 years later, we are feeling we made a mistake. We are not getting much milk, and worse yet the kids are growing up to be inferior producers to their mothers. In other words, we are going the wrong direction. Should we just start over with real dairy goats? How? A bred doe would seem to make sense, but would this just be a cull from someone's herd? How do you get off to the "right" start? We are thinking of contacting a local goat dairy, but I'd like some thoughts first. Thanks.
