Kessel Run Minis - The Barefoot Acres

Welcome to our herd page! We are currently working on building our herd of Mini-Nubians. The goal with our herd is to produce exceptional miniature sized Nubians that have a great feed to milk conversion and the beautiful features of the Nubians. We are focusing heavily on udder and teat/orifice development and replicating the Nubian conformation in a miniature size.

Nubians are one of the most common dairy breeds of goats known. They are rather large (135-175lbs and 30-35″ tall, and sometimes bigger!) and for some new goat owners, they are intimidating and a bit more to handle with their size. But who can resist those big long ears and sweet roman noses? However, mini-Nubians will mature at a height of about 23-26″ and just under 100lbs. Perfect size and easy to handle as well as lower feed costs. Yet you still receive excellent milking rates.

Mini-Nubians are a rather new breed to the scene. People have been looking for smaller, easier to handle goats for the everyday person. Our mini-Nubians are a combination of Nigerian Dwarfs and Nubians. They get their size from the Nigerian Dwarf and their looks from the Nubian. Nigerians also have a high butterfat, that along with Nubian’s production gives an abundance of sweet and creamy milk!

Our herd is mostly raised on pasture, grass hay, and alfalfa hay. We do give a small amount of hand mixed grain to our pregnant and milking does. We raise them as naturally and holistically as possible.
