Keeping your goat's udder in top condition is very important! Here are some ideas/recipes for making an udder wash to keep your dairy goats clean, and their udder functioning!
Selecting a good dairy goat comes after you decide on what breed you want to start out with. If you choose Nigerian Dwarfs, make sure you study the breed standards as outlined by the NDGA or other registry. Also look at pictures of LOTS of goats within your chosen breed. Pure bred goats will have a more consistent ‘look’ about them, and will be easier for you to select a good looking goat. A hybrid will have mixed features, and unless they are being bred toward a specific and obvious purpose you will have a more difficult time finding a goat with all the right traits. Mini dairy goats are the only ‘hybrid’ I would recommend for beginners as they are bred to the same standard and must have the same appearance as the full sized goats.
