I am thinking about getting milk goats, but not sure of breed. What kind of goats do you ahve and why did you pick that breed?
I am leaning toward nubian but considering the nigerian dwarf. Any thoughts from anyone would be appreciated.

I used to breed, raise, and show nubians. They are just too cute with their floppy ears. They also have the highest butterfat content in their milk of any of the breeds of goats. If you want a heavy milker, Saanans are the heaviest, but nubians produce a lot too. I like Nubians and lamanchas personalities best.

I currently have Nubian bottle babies. I just bought a pygmy buck. My plan was/is to start a Kinder herd . That is still my goal, but dang it I really love these Nubians! I haven't gotten to any milking yet, so I can't tell you how that will go. I just like their personalities and how cute they are!
