Welcome to Daystar's Farm, where we specialize in Miniature Nubian dairy goats,
 but also have Standard Nubian & Nigerian Dwarf goats.


We are located in beautiful Woodland, Washington, just 1/2 an hour North of Portland, OR.

Our herd is fed certified organic feed, regularly tested CAE free, and is maintained in a closed herd atmosphere.

 

All of our Mini Nubian, Nubian & Nigerian Dwarves are from proven show and milk lines.

We began breeding standard Nubian dairy goats in 1996.
We started with Nubians from heavy milk lines as well as champion show lines.
We ventured into breeding Mini Nubian dairy & Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats in 2002.
We researched pedigrees before we started breeding our Mini Nubians and
chose a buck with proven lines from Echo Hill's Farm, breeders of champion Miniature Nubian goats.
We purchased Nigerian Dwarf goats from breeders who breed champion show and milk producing
 Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats. This helped us produce quality show and milking Mini Nubian dairy goats.

 

Why Miniature Dairy Goats?

The standard purebred dairy goat breeds have been pushing for greater stature
for the show ring which has resulted in standard dairy goat breeds getting larger in recent years.

Standard Nubian goats crossed with Nigerian Dwarf goats result in Mini Nubian dairy goats, (Miniature Nubian dairy goats)
which are easier for children and seniors to handle than their larger relatives,  so hoof trimming, clipping,
showing and milking become much easier.

Feed costs are rising and a Mini Nubian dairy goat can often produce only 1/3 less milk
 than the standard Nubian dairy goat while often consuming 2/3 less feed.

(This will be proven with time, as they breed the size down with each generation.)

Mini goats have become more in demand for the pet market too because of their smaller size as well.

The influence Nigerian Dwarf blood may serve to expand the breeding season
past the fall months and increase the butterfat in the milk as well.

We note the percent of the Nubian and percent of the Nigerian by listing them;
Nubian first then Nigerian, in this way; (50/50%).

 

"Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,
and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.
Do you believe this?" John 11:25-26
