Of the six common dairy goats, the Swiss breeds (Alpine, Oberhasli, Saanen, Toggenburg) are the hardiest for colder climates. The remaining two (LaMancha and Nubian) are genetically equipped to handle extremely warm and dry climates but may be kept in the north with proper care.
Can I Dehorn an older goat?
Dehorning adult goats should not be performed during fly season unless absolutely necessary because miasis may be a problem.
