Laura Jensen said:If you want family milkers, have you considered Minis? (Mini-Obers, Mini-Lamanchas, Mini-Alpines, etc.) Check out the MDGA website at http://www.geocities.com/miniaturedairygoats/ . I've milked Nigerians and standards, and just love my minis! There's a recent thread, something like "Calling all Mini-Lamancha breeders" that explains why. Best of luck with your new adventure!
