Dairy Goats

Welcome to Northern Dawn Nigerians is; the home strong milking miniature dairy goats.  We are located in Utah County of Utah.  Our herd consists of Nigerian Dwarf and Mini Nubian Dairy Goats

  • Dairy Herd Improvement milk tested
  • Long Term Milkers of often 15 to 18 months and even close to two years lactation per doe
  • Top Ten American Goat Society Milking does
  • Advanced Registry American Goat Society and Nigerian Dwarf Goat Association
  • High Protein and Butterfat
  • People using our milk are obtaining high yields on their cheese and yogurt

My milk schedule leaves a lot to be desired, because of my employment schedule.  We typically milk at 1am and 7 pm, but these does just keep milking and milking

Goal and Achievements

  • Most of our does have easily have proven ‘extended lactations’.  Meaning they easily milk for over a year and often 18 to 20 months
  • Most of our does have easy to milk long teats and strong udder attachments
  • Conformations that are structurally correct
  • Proven dairy goats that will stand by you

Health of our Herd

  • We take the health of our herd very seriously
  • Regular hoof trimming
  • CAE negative testing yearly, if not more often
  • We do show, but not very much, to maintain health of our herd.  One never knows what is out there for disease and illness.
  • Soon we will be learning how to bacteria test our own milk; something we feel is very important
  • In Dairy Herd Improvement Milk testing, there is Somatic Cell Count per doe, monthly. this can give a strong indication if there is mastitis or other problems with the udder
  • Soon we will be learning how to fecal test our own herd, at our farm

Breeds We Raise

  • Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats
  • Mini Nubian dairy goats

Things We can do for you

  • Certified Dairy Herd Improvement Milk Tester – we can test your herd’s milk for 305 DHI and/or One-Day testing
  • Hope to soon be trained to test bacteria levels in milk, and thus will be able to test yours
  • Milk sales
