The Nuwby Goat Breed
The Nuwby Goat is an Australian breed portraying elegance and nobility with its regal upright stance, its exotic facial profile and its gentle and graceful temperament. It was originally created in 2001 by pairing Boer, Anglo Nubian and Kalahari goats of excellent type from both purebred and crossbred lines with carefully selected smaller breeds of goats to produce a small elegant often colourful animal with a gentle nature.
Gentle and loveable, easily trainable. The Nuwby is a graceful, elegant animal with a gentle, friendly temperament.
Great for families looking for backyard mini milkers who also make great pets. Their gentle nature makes them the perfect pet for both young and old and they are great companion animals for other species too. A well-bred Nuwby can produce enough milk for the family each day some of which can be used to make cheese, yogurt and even soap. Goat manure is very high in nitrogen and is great for the garden.
Dedicated Breeders continue to work on both refinement of type and reduction of height with an ideal maximum height of 60cm for adult purebred females and 63.5cm for adult purebred males.
Animals are measured and classified for a Grade at 3 years. See the Australian Nuwby Grading chart for a more detailed view of heights for grading purposes.
If in good health and well looked after, Nuwby goats can live anywhere between 10 to 15 years.
