Want to learn more about miniature dairy goats! The public is welcome and encouraged to come and watch the show! There will be baby goats on display, goat milking demonstrations, and a concession stand.
The Hill Country Mini Milkers is a club that is dedicated to the breeding, raising, and showing of Miniature dairy goats. Miniature dairy goats are a cross between standard sized dairy breeds and Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, to create a blending of the attributes of both breeds in a smaller package. The miniature dairy goats are thriftier to keep, eating half the amount of feed, while producing ¾ the amount of milk as the full-sized breeds. In addition, their milk is creamier with a higher protein content, making the mini's milk perfect for cheese making. The smaller size of the miniature dairy goat makes them easier to handle, and are bred to be the perfect goat for a back-yard family milker.
