Quality Pet Pygmy Goats  

Pygmy Goats

The pygmy goat originated on the continent of Africa and is sometimes known as the African Pygmy goat. It was imported into this country at the end of the 19th Century as a zoo animal. As its name implies its smaller than dairy goats but produces a respectable amount of milk for its weight and food consumption.

Pygmy goats are usually kept as pets or show animals and not for meat or milk production.

Pygmy goats make excellent children's pets because they are easy to raise and handle they are affectionate, cute, loveable and playful. Owning a Pygmy Goat as a pet can also help reduce symptoms of stress, reduce blood pressure and increase your life span.

A full-grown nanny or wether (castrated male) can be from 16 to 23 inches at the withers and usually weigh from 40 to 70 pounds.

Pygmy goats are year round breeders so kids may be available at any time of the year. A litter usually consists of 1-3 goats and the kids weigh from 2-4 pounds.
