Goats Swampy Acres is home to a herd of Nubian goats. Nubians are dual purpose goats
and have historically been bred for both milk and meat. They aren't the best at either
category. Boer goats grow faster and larger for meat, and Alpine goats give more milk.
However, Nubians are a reasonable size if you want to eat them (we don't) also they
give a good deal of milk, and their milk is the highest in fat of the goat breeds (around
5% fat as compared to around 3-4% for cow's milk) Also, Nubians we have found
Nubians are good at the following activities:
brush clearing, destroying fences and escaping, eating your shrubbery around your
house, making human-sounding screams if you don't feed them right away, and other
fun things like this. There are some links on this page where you can learn about
some basic goat care and maintenance.
