This is Aster, a 14 week old mini Alpine. (Half Alpine, half Nigerian Dwarf.) She was born Feb 8th and is weaned. I am selling her for $250.

Her mother is a pure Alpine, she even has papers. I don't put much weight on paper trails though, I'd rather judge an animal by its traits. Zinnia is a very mild mannered goat and produces a lot of milk for me: currently 1.5 gallons or a little more every day! Her previous owner said she was getting 2 gallons daily. Her teats are amazing for hand milking. They're huge and express milk very quickly! I so appreciate these big teats after I milk my Nigerian Dwarf, haha! Zinnia is a doting mother and keeps her babies cleaned up, well fed, and delivered them very easily. Her temperament is so lovely and patient.

Aster has been raised by her dam all this time and is a healthy, vigorous little goat. She's also such a beauty, look at that length in her body and leg! She is more shy of people than my other baby goats, but if you start lead training her right away, she'll warm up and be a very easy animal to handle and train to the milk stand. She should be a lovely dairy goat and produce well for you!

Aster's sire is a Nigerian Dwarf. His name is Fergus. This influence in her genetic makeup should give you some more fat content in her milk than you would get from an Alpine. Fergus is a very sweet tempered buck. He's safe around my children and is very gentle with the baby goats. He also treats his ladies well. A good temperament in a buck is important for herd health! Fergus' mother had quadruplets more than once and successfully nursed and raised all her babies. More good mothering genetics at play here for Aster, as well as high milk production for the Nigerian Dwarf breed. Fergus has always been a healthy and robust goat, no issues to treat. He is incredibly low maintenance.

My goats are herbally managed and fed organic feed. They are chemical free and healthy. It's not easy to find that quality of goat for this price!

I have included photos of Zinnia and her udder. Also included are photos of Fergus. Aster will continue to grow into a beautiful and well conformed goat like her parents.

Give me a call and come meet Aster!
