We have been granted an awesome opportunity to try our hand at Nigoras, Nigerian x Angora crosses. We went to get an Angora buck for our herd, since Tex passed away almost 2 years ago. Helen the lady went got the buck from had 3 Nigora doelings, that she wasn’t able to sell and was just trying to get rid of them, so we took them.
Nigoras are an attempt to get a dual purpose breed, one that produces fiber and milk. There fleeces come in 3 categories, A – which is an Angora type fleece, C – which is a cashmere like fleece and then B – which has characteristics of both.
We look forward to developing our line of Nigroas. And welcome them to Hafrskegg’s Hamlet!
