I've been wanting to get a dairy goat for quite some time. At first I saw these MiniNubians and thought they would be a great fit but then I realized the ywere few and far between. So I decided to look for purebred Nubians.Well where I live, in chester county,PA they are also few and far between. I did some more research and found a few places a couple hours away in various directions that breed MiniNubians. I'd like to know if anyone here has any or has any experience with them? I currently have about an acre of land and no shelter for them. What size shelter would be good for 2 to 6 MiniNubains (I'm planning for some growth) I was thinking of using a large garden shed starting at 10 x 12 or larger. But sheds are so expensive! I'd love to have a small barn built. There are plenty of amish around here but their shed prices are much higher than lowes or someplace like that. I can't imagine how much they'd charge for a barn. I'd also like ot know how much "food" one lactating MiniNubian might need on a daily basis. And by food I was thinking goat feed, alfalfa hay and pasture but am I missing something else? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I've been researching the topic of Dairy Goats for quite some time. I'd be ready to milk a goat tomorrow if I had shelter and a freshened doe! And also I had a question about inbreeding. It seems as though some people have a "closed" especially with these new minibreeds. I always thought linebreeding or inbreeding was bad. But what are the limits here? How closely related are okay? And finally, does anyone know for a proven fact that bucks make goat milk taste goaty. Have you actually tasted it? Because as I do more research and have difficulty finding goats anywhere near me. I start to think that I may need to keep a few bucks if I want milk. Which means more food and separate shelter. But is the separate shelter really necessary??
