Sergeant Nigerian Dwarf Goat

The Newest Goat Member

Sergeant was born on May 25, 2020 and is the tiniest goat to ever be born at Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo. Since he's still a baby, he loves to be held and cuddled. His favorite activity is bouncing. He loves to bounce all around his enclosure. He will even jump in your lap or onto your back! He loves to be around people!

Shepperly Farm Fun Facts

Nigerian dwarf goats make great pets. They are friendly, docile and love to be around people. They are also small, so they don't take up too much space. This means you don't need nearly as much space as you would need to keep a full size goat as a pet. This also makes them less expensive to keep. Their small size means they don't require as much feed as larger breeds.

Nigerian dwarf goats are also raised for milk production. Their milk is higher in butterfat and protein than most dairy goat breeds.

The average lifespan for a Nigerian dwarf goat is around 15 years.

Full size Nigerian dwarf goats weigh between 65 and 85 pounds.

It is not uncommon for a Nigerian dwarf goat doe to give birth to 3 to 4 kids per pregnancy. Even 5 kids in one pregnancy is not unusual. At birth, each kid weighs about 2 pounds on average.
