About the Breed

As the only true dual purpose goat bred to excel in both milk and meat production, the
Kinder goat is ideal for the hobbiest, homesteader and goat enthusiast. The Kinder
goats' medium size (averaging 100-125 pounds) makes them easy to handle, a safe
choice for families and lone handlers, and their friendly personalities make them a joy to
be around.

Kinders make a large a mount of milk for their size, and their milk tends to be sweeter
and higher in butter fat than most other breeds. This makes it ideal for cheese-making
and soaping as well as drinking. Reaching 70% of their full weight before they reach a
year, with a dress out percentage of around 60%, they are also a wonderful option for
those interested in raising goats for meat. They are very efficient in their feed
conversion rate, and their milk and meat have both been rated as best tasting in
competitions. Hardy and thrifty, these goats truly are the perfect breed!

Look in the breed history to read our ‘in the beginning’ story, and view some photos of
the early Kinders. The Kinder Breed Standard outlines what is expected in the ‘ideal’
Kinder, as far as conformation is concerned. Starting Your Herd is a basic primer that
explains beginning a Kinder herd from scratch – from the ‘starter kit’ (Registered
Nubian/Registered Pygmy Goat) through the early selection process that will set the
traits that you want to promote in your herd.
