ABOUT ZODIAC MINI GOATS
Established in 2013, and based in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Zodiac Mini Goats is home to the best miniature goat breed - the Nigerian Dwarf Goat. Our aim is to produce high quality breeding stock along with well-natured, healthy and loveable family pets.
ONE OF AUSTRALIA'S MOST AWARDED BREEDERS - Zodiac Mini Goats is the most awarded NSW miniature goat breeder with FIVE Zodiac bred goats awarded the prestigious title of AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION - these are the only NSW bred miniature goats to achieve this accolade as at mid 2020. Zodiac stud is only the 4th miniature goat stud in the country to have achieved 5 or more Australian Champions - something we are incredibly proud of.
NSW OLDEST AND LARGEST NIGERIAN DWARF GOAT STUD - We now exclusively breed Nigerian Dwarfs and we have led the way in NSW with this exciting new breed since 2016. We were the first miniature goat stud in NSW breeding Dwarfs, and the first to own a purebred 100% Nigerian Dwarf buck. In 2019 we expanded into purebred lines welcoming two USA does as the foundation for our purebred herd, and our first 100% kids were born here in July 2019. Our stud operates under a genetic recovery program, along with purebred imported stock, working towards animals that are 90%+ Nigerian Dwarf.
We've been testing our herd for CAE and Johnes disease since 2015. In fact every doe that has ever kidded on our property has tested clear. Further, all our goats are DNA tested all the way back to the orignial US import.
Miniature Goats are great companion animals and make wonderful pets for a rural lifestyle. They are very smart and full of personality. They generally grow to the size of a medium sized dog breed (around knee-high) and live around 12-15 years. If you are looking for colourful, loveable family pets, friendly grass eaters, mini milkers, or quality breeding stock, we offer a full range of animals and breeder support. Located less than 2 hours from Sydney or Canberra, and less than 1 hour from Wollongong.
