    Vicki, thank you so much for posting this for me. I really am hoping to find a Nubian buck right away, as I have two does not settled and no buck at all.
    However, I have found a Nigerian Dwarf breeder just 30 miles from me, and am seriously thinking of getting one of her bucks so I can get my does bred and at least have milk this year.
    I will start a new post and ask about Nigerian/Nubian crosses

    Thanks,
    Elizabeth

    Sondra,
    Stacy lives in Blue Ridge - it is a lot closer to Tyler than Blue Mound :rofl

    I want to say first how grateful I am for the offers I've gotten. It is very kind to offer to let me use your buck, Sondra, and two others have also offered. Unfortunately, it's too far for me to drive.
    I went and looked at a beautiful little Nigerian Dwarf buck this morning--but he is very small. He has never bred a doe, and I don't know if he could have bred my two tall Nubians until he gets a bit older. So I didn't buy him and am back to square one.

    I got to thinking that I wouldn't mind using a Boer buck for meat babies, and am getting the word out to all my non-goatie friends, because a lot of people know people who have Boers around here.

    Thanks again,
    Elizabeth

    Hi Elizabeth,
    I'm pretty new to the whole goat thing, but I have a couple of thoughts.
    1) The little ND buck might be big enough if he had something to stand on, like a bale of hay or straw or something.
    2) I get the impression (perhaps incorrect) that some meat goat people are less concerned with things like CAE than dairy goat people are, so be sure if you go that route, that you are using a buck that has been tested and is part of a negative herd. (But you probably knew that already.)

    It's not C A E Its C L is what you have to worry about in meat goats.
    Just have to know the breeder and that they test and run a clean herd.
    There is some on this list. :biggrin

    I really don't think a young ND at this time of year will be able to get the job done for you. Nubians can be quite picky so it takes a seasoned buck that knows what he is doing to get the job done. Think you made the right choice. NOW and old ND will get ur done.

    Elizabeth,
    I have a tested CAE neg ND buck who is an old pro and will get the job done for you- he wooed my older Nubian doe last year and produced some gorgeous mini Nubians. (without any help, apparently!) I do not know where you are located- I am in the Carthage area. I can send you pictures if you'd like.

    Donna,
    I am in Winnsboro, about 45 miles from Longview; Carthage isn't too far from Longview, is it? I'd love to see pictures of him! You can email them to me at [email protected] .

    Elizabeth I just remembered someone. Autumn is just 88 miles from you and has a very nice buck Oreo was born at my place he is out of a Doe I got from Vicki "Divinity" Oreo is on her buck page just scroll down and you'll see him

    Maybe they would breed your does for you.

    Thank you Sondra:) I really am liking the idea of breeding for mini-Nubians right now though, and am working out a lease with Donna. I've been googling mini Nubians and they are darling!

    I totally agree about the minis...we are getting Nubians soon and I already told my husband that sometime down the road, I'd really like to get into the mini Nubians. It would be a goat addiction on steriods. :D

    Yeh well breed those MN back to a Nubian buck so you get the good ears. I have two 1st gen that have fair ears but not correct by any means they were bred back to my Nubian. Hope you get your does bred.
