Say we get two Nubian does for milking. We also want meat. A buck that we can breed to the Nubians. A Boer seems to be the best choice as it's a common cross around here. But what about a Pygmy buck and raise Kinders? What about Myotonics? I really like the idea of the possibility of them being easier to keep in the fence. They're also supposed to be a heritage breed in need of preservation (according to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy). What about the economics of resale? I think if we were to raise too many to slaughter that we would have better luck with the Nubian/Boer crosses. Aren't they the ones sold as "boer percentages?" And then there are the little ones. We could get a buck and two does of both the Pygmies and the Dwarfs. One breed for milk and one breed for meat. Keep the bucks together and breed them to the corresponding does of the same breed. Have little glasses of milk and little bitty goat steaks. Y'all just choose what breed we should raise. There are too many choices.
