Are Nubian/Lamancha's crosses good milkers?

    I got similar results in looks breeding my La Mancha doe to a boer. She had two does, but we didn't hold any back, our intention was for meat.

    The thing I don't love about breeding long eared breeds to the La Mancha is those freaky half ears. Both my doelings had them. I like them earless or with ears not in between. But that is neither here nor there as far as production goes...

    hopefully my nubie took with the La Mancha buck we borrowed, maybe a doe would be worth keeping - I'd love to hear more about it! I also have a nubie/french alpine bred to a La Mancha so that will be interesting!

    I am eagerly awaiting my LM/N buck cross on Feb 22nd . I have been breeding my 2 LM doe's to boer and I have had some nice long ears on bucklings that were show wethers ,so I know long ears are posssible . It's also great to hear that they will/should be great milkers also :D
